DBA stop on the journey

On the next step of our bbq tour of Atlanta we had dinner at DBA Barbecue in the Virginia Highland area in Altanta off of N Highland. Another great little spot that was great versus going to a typical chain restaurant. In warmer months would be a good patio spot, they had a good size covered patio when you walk up. The inside had booth against the walls, a bar up front and tables throughout. They had an open kitchen and you could smell the bbq as you walked up. They are having a fish fry in February, might have to venture back over for some fish and hush puppies.

DBA had a pretty cool menu and full bar with again a good selection of beer. They even had some pretty good sounding burgers on there as well. We started off with an order of sweet tater tots and fried pickles/bacon with ranch. The tots were just okay, but the pickles/bacon were good. The bacon was literally just rolled in what looked like catfish batter and deep fried. The table was split 50/50, but I thought it was pretty damn good.

As far as a meal, I went with the old standard and got a chopped brisket sandwich with a side of mac 'n' cheese. The meat again was tender, but a little dry. The mac was really good and it was definitely made from scratch. John had one of the most incredible sandwiches I have ever heard of. It was called "The Archie Bunker." It is Texas toast with smoked pulled pork topped with mac 'n' cheese, sweet bbq sauce and jack/cheddar cheese.

Overall a 4 beers out of 5. Will definitely return for some grub.
