It isn’t often that I drive from Decatur to Brookhaven just to eat lunch but I have been known to do that very thing for the Old Brick Pit Barbecue, which has been serving BBQ fans since 1976. Having eaten at a seemingly endless number of BBQ places over the years, this is definitely my favorite. The menu is simple and the ambience is pretty basic but it has that old style kind of pork barbecue which has been the staple in Georgia and North Carolina forever. They slow cook the pork and douse it in a tart vinegar sauce that goes perfectly with the slightly sweet cole slaw. Naturally, you should always have the chopped pork sandwich with cole slaw, which is the traditional way of eating it in my home state of North Carolina. See why I like this place so much?

Smaller rivers in Georgia have obscure origins and the Alcovy—which rises in Gwinnett about five miles northeast of Lawrenceville—starts as streams north of the state in a webbed network of remote creeks. It is in Gwinnett that the Alcovy becomes a true river, running down through Walton and Newton Counties and from there to Lake Jackson in Butts County.
