THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Georgia's Eastside BBQ Restaurant Review

: With its walls covered with our nation’s flags and other Americana, the barbecue spot’s narrow six-table space has the feel of a basement rec room. The food, unfortunately, doesn’t taste so authentic. The rib sandwich, which comes bone-in, on two slices of Wonder-like bread, is a flabby piece of mediocrity; the fried chicken barely has anything on the bone; and the half-chicken dinner (dinners come with two sides) bears moist meat but is on the forgettable side. You could also take your chances with the Georgia Dog, which comes with cheese, slaw and hot sauce; the “Sampson style” wings, billed as lightly seasoned, char-grilled, and while less messy, equally addictive; or the BBQ Sampler: ribs, andouille sausage, and Sampson wings, with extra sauce and a hearty portion of slaw.
