Wow! This is by far the best BBQ in our area. I attended a party and was so wowed by the brisket that I catered a party the next week for 50 with Brisket, pulled pork, pulled chicken, cowboy beans, Mac n cheese and cole slaw. All were fantastic! My guests raved about the food. Everyone asked where it was from. And.....the staff was s ... read more

This place was a great hole in the wall find! I loved the vibe of this place. They were so friendly & welcoming! The people who worked here really believed in this place. I loved the pulled pork & Mac n cheese. The collard greens were flavorful but heavy on the salt. The sauce was tasty and vinegary. I also tried some of the chili - ... read more

Best bbq we have had in forsyth county. Brisket was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Pork was great.

Picked up food for 25. Everything was on point including the staff. If you want it done right, Socks Love is the place.

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).

Amazing BBQ. I enjoyed every single thing I ingested from this beautiful establishment. To start the meat was perfect. Not sure how else to describe it.

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!

Best brisket in the Atlanta area. This is the place you go to when you want BBQ. Small restaurant with limited seating but you will not find better brisket anywhere near here.

I have traveled all over the country and ate bbq in some of the bbq capitals of the USA. This is by far the best bbq I have ever ate in my life! Everything I have tried has been delicious from the pulled pork to chicken to ribs and all the sides are amazing!

If I could give it 6 stars I would. Rarely do you find a BBQ joint that does EVERYTHING to near perfection. Tender ribs, juicy pulled pork, delicious beef sausage, and smoky peppery brisket.

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. Growing up in North Carolina barbecue is like a religion. Socks has delicious main course but do a phenomenal job on their sides. We will definitely be back.

Socks Love Barbecue is great food and the people are great too. I have had the opportunity to have food from here in both individual pickup as well as catered and it has been amazing. The service is impeccable and their willingness to care for other small businesses during the past year shows this.

This is hands down some of the best bbq around. The brisket was fall apart and had an incredible authentic smokey taste. The pork was amazing as well as were the beans and collard greens. My only problem is that I live 5 minutes away so I will be coming in regularly for lunch. Like maybe tomorrow.

A bbq gem in the city. They are open from 11am to 2pm. And like any great bbq joint they serve it up until they are out. It takes hours to make this beautiful meat. So go. Enjoy it and get there early. Their sides are awesome. The people are awesome. I love this place.

The pulled pork was excellent. The beans were a bit too sweet, I loved the consistency and the bits of pork in them but the sweetness made them too much and I only had a couple of spoonfuls. I would love to see a few more sides. Maybe chips and fries.
