Welcome to ATL Meat Week! Join Us for D.B.A. Barbecue

Welcome to ATL Meat Week! Good Eats & Meets is joining the growing legions of fans to celebrate to goodness of BBQ and taking part in this wonderful celebration of all things BBQ !

What the hay is Meat Week?

Meat Week is a national holiday started in 2005.  Each January/February, for 8 consecutive nights, people across the country gather over piles of BBQ.  Meat Week typically focuses on good ol' American BBQ: Pork, ribs, brisket, barbecued chicken, and anything else you can smoke and smother in sauce.

New to Meat Week? Let us be the first to extend a greasy hand. Here's what you need to know:

Schedule: Good Eats & Meets is sharing the events posted by the ATL Meat Week organizers. http://www.meatweek.com/cities/atlanta  Join us for events at different BBQ restaurants for 8 Nights, (Sunday through Sunday Jan 27th-Feb 3rd).


"I can't possibly make all 8 nights, can I still participate in Meat Week?" Everyone is welcome to attend all 8 nights, but no one is expected to!

The intent is for Good Eats & Meets to post an event every night, in hopes that at least one night will be convenient for all who are interested, and that no one will have to meat in solitude.

"How come you don't include Mongolian BBQ, Thai BBQ, or steak houses?" We started with traditional, southern BBQ because that's what made us meat lovers to begin with. Everyone's welcome to celebrate as they see fit. Maybe we'll even extend our boundaries if we exhaust our city's resources.

"I'm a vegetarian, I feel left out." More than half the crew who sailed the maiden voyage of meat were herbivores. We even have two captains who don't eat red meat. Many vegetarians come for the camaraderie, but stay for the sides. Just make sure the baked beans don't have pork in them (they probably will) or use french fries as a sauce vehicle!



D.B.A. Barbecue is a chef owned casual neighborhood restaurant and bar in Virginia-Highland, a popular intown walking neighborhood. We're proud to say that DBA offers the best barbecue and choice of sides in Atlanta! Start with ten barbecued meats from the Smokehouse, including The D.B.A. Whole House Platter, and then choose from fifteen homemade sides made lovingly by Miss Bev. We also offer a full menu of fresh salads, delicious burgers and sandwiches, and our popular smoked wings and BBQ nachos. DBA features moonshine and bourbon signature cocktails, regional draft and bottled beers, and plenty of HD TV's for watching your favorite sports.

We love being part of Virginia-Highland, a real neighborhood where friends and families meet at DBA to enjoy great food and relax at our friendly restaurant and bar. We hope to see you soon!

He's doing Beef RIbs for us again this year. Because Matt Coggins loves us so much. Lets return the favor by packing the place! did somebody say creamed corn?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
