THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Harold's Barbecue Restaurant Review

: Begun by Harold Hembree in 1947, this stalwart of barbecue sits in the very shadow of the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary, once the abode of Al Capone, and draws a wide mix of loyal patrons, from suit types to law enforcement folks and jeans-clad hard-working people. The ribs don't impress us as much as the chopped barbecue sandwich. Whatever you order, make sure to have the Brunswick stew and the cracklin' cornbread, which is cornbread containing bits of rendered pork fat meat. No alcohol is served.
