This is the go to for us at work for BBQ. Not a huge place but food is great. You will not be disappointed. Brisket, sausage, etc…. And the sides are great as well. Well worth checking out in my opinion. Also believe a great value.

The owner started this business after he made BBQ for a wedding. He first started selling dry rubs then sauce. Opened up a catering business and was pressured into opening a restaurant. So his hours are a bit wonky sometimes but damn that's good brisket. The cheesy sausage and OMG mac are great as well. There is real brisket in the c ... read more

Some of the best BBQ I have ever had. I am an avid BBQ eater and the brisket and pulled pork is top of the line here. The pork has a nice crisp flavorful crust! The sides are great as well. The only issue I have is I live about 10 hours from here.

This is some really good barbecue all in the Texas style! I like to buy a large order to take to family gatherings as all of us are BIG barbecue fans. We've eaten barbecue all over the USA and Socks Love is right up there with the best! Thanks so much for coming to our town Socks Love Barbecue!

This place is really good. No nonsense, AMPLE servings, great and fast service. Limited family style seating and it's popular so get there early if possible. The collards are KILLER!!

Socks love is my favorite BBQ in North GA. I love their various sausages (if you're lucky enough to get them before they sell out). Always friendly staff, owner is great to talk to and hear the story from directly. Catering is well worth the money spent as well. Every one of their sides is great. I was never a fan of creme corn until ... read more

Excellent place for BBQ in Forsyth County, and among the best in the state. The pork and brisket are delicious. The sides are large and taste really fresh...Mac and cheese and beans were awesome.

17Dec2021 - good stuff, delicious, mouthwatering brisket. My wife loved the turkey and pork, juicy and tasty. The mac and cheese was different than the elbows I'm used to but absolutely nailed it, big rigatoni noodles, I think, cheesy and amazing, could've eaten a pound of them.
James R via google.com - Dec 17, 2021
Stopped by for a quick meal. Had the pork sandwich with Mac and cheese, just cause they were sold out of Chilli Brunswick and frito pie. Unlike some other local places the sandwich was great, real BBQ with pickles and plenty of flavor. The Mac and cheese was recommended as the most popular side and did not disappoint, it was creamy ... read more

Y'all. Seriously. I think this is some of the best BBQ in Georgia. Everything is cooked perfectly and is juicy and tender, especially the brisket.

Just thinking about it is making me h ... read more

Absolutely astonished by this place. Starting from service all the way to the food, five stars is an understatement. I had the pulled pork sandwich with the best mac and cheese I've ever had.

I get the brisket plate when I go, and it is consistently good. Tender and juicy, and a nice smoked peppery flavor. The cowboy beans are really unique and delicious. I only wish the fries were fresh cut. The service is exceptional and really friendly!

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.
