Williamson Bros. Bar-B-Q Restaurant Review

: Famous for its barbecue and more, rustic Williamson Bros. Bar-B-Q offers a range of barbecue and other Southern cuisine goodies. For the uninitiated, the famished and the curious, order the sampler platter to savor a full introduction to all the goodies. The experienced barbecue fan will focus on the ribs and chopped pork, moistened with a tangy, but not overly hot, tomato-based sauce that also is available commercially. Side dishes include the fried dill pickles, fried red (yes, red) tomatoes, the fresh-tasting and distinctively seasoned Brunswick stew and the potato salad. The pies are homemade, and the coconut is the prime choice. Some outdoor picnic tables are available, but no outdoor service. Also located at 1425 Roswell Rd., Marietta, 770-971-3201; and 1600 Marietta Hwy., Canton, 770-345-9067.
