Looking for Barbecue in Atlanta? Look no Further! Sweet Auburn BBQ has a location in the Poncey-Highlands that is convenient to the Beltline, Piedmont Park, Little Five Points, and Midtown! Come see us today for Barbecue that is truly as Southern as Atlanta and as inspired as Atlanta.

Owners Howard and Anita Hsu grew up working in the hustle of their family restaurants. From a young age they gained a passion for food and hospitality. Soon after graduating from the University of Georgia, the brother and sister duo opened Gezzo’s West Coast Burritos in Henry Country. With the success of Gezzo’s, Howard set out to expand the business and started experimenting with smoked meats. Eventually his special BBQ recipes won the Chomp and Stomp chili cook off, Suwanee wing festival and AVLF BBQ battle three years in a row.

Sweet Auburn Market saw how much Atlanta loved the Hsu’s southern style BBQ with a twist and invited Howard to open a permanent restaurant within the market. Here the name “Sweet Auburn Barbecue” was born.

With Howard and Anita’s Asian roots and Southern upbringing, Sweet Auburn Barbecue offers traditional style barbecue with an Asian twist. Items on the menu such as pimento cheese wontons or coconut lemongrass ribs demonstrate the perfect marriage of traditional and innovative styles that Sweet Auburn Barbecue has to offer.
