Best brisket ever. I'm an old guy so I've had a lot of brisket. The drive from Marietta was well worth it. Great owner.

I do love socks, good socks. Good thing Socks Love makes good Q. Turkey, pulled pork and brisket all done to perfection, by a professional no doubt. The sauce is vinegar based and nice for dunkin. I thoroughly enjoyed my mac & cheese and the creamed corn was delicious. So go on and get you some Sock (whether you like socks or no ... read more

My daughter ordered pulled pork, chicken, mac and cheese, beans and salad to go for a party. My wife and I picked it up. Everything was ready when we got to Socks Love.

First time and could not be more impressed. Staff was very friendly and the owner came around to each group to make sure everything came out okay, which I admired a lot. Definitely do not pass up the Mac and cheese!!! After trying every barbecue place in town we have finally found a staple.

Awesome little bbq place with wonderful service. When you can nail the turkey and chicken you know everything else is going to be delicious too! Creamed corn was really good. We got a to-go order but there was a small area inside with seating.

I adore this place! I split the dinglewood sandwhich, which came with a choice of their black pepper and garlic sausage or their white cheddar and pepper sausage along with a side.

Barbecue was spot on. In fact, my sandwich had nothing but premium pork in it. The sandwich was generous in its size. Fries were good. Sweet tea was spot on. Would definitely recommend this barbecue place if you're looking for top notch food.
Matthew Keller via google.com - Jun 24, 2021
Great service, super friendly. One of the best briskets I've ever had, so tender and amazing flavor. The pepper and garlic sausage was lights out. Mac and cheese, hot dang that was good. Cowboy beans were fantastic. The ribs were the only so/so thing we tried. Great flavor but were pretty tough and hard to pull apart.

Great little spot for BBQ. Great ribs, brisket, creamed corn, Mac and cheese, and coleslaw. The only very minor thing I would change is the fries being too salty (and I like a lot of salt).

Best barbeque ever. My family has been trying out all sorts of barbeque but all of them fall short to Socks Love. We were their first customers and we knew as soon as we tried it that it was the best barbeque around. Great job to Steven, and his crew, for making the best barbeque ever!

Yesterday was the second time we had dined at Socks(dine room closed but we used picnic tables). I would rate this as one of the best barbecue restaurants in this area for sure.
