But those of you who enjoy barbecue in the metro Atlanta area were eager to vote on your favorite restaurant.

Coming in at No. 3 was Heirloom Market BBQ. If you go there, make sure to order the pork sandwich with kimchi coleslaw, a nod to chef Jiyeon Lee’s Korean heritage.

Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q finished with the second most votes. The brothers, who are from Texas, “proudly showcase their brisket.”

But this year’s winner was new to our voting:

Hattie Marie’s Texas Style BBQ and Cajun Kitchen opened its doors in 2017 at 3699 Main St. in College Park.

As The AJC’s Yvonne Zusel reported: “Husband and wife Willie and Ramona Griggie named the eatery — which serves Texas-style barbecue and cajun dishes — after Willie’s mother, who loved to cook and owned her own bakery and catering company.”
