5th Street Ribs and Blues Atlanta

Midtown barbecue joint shutters after nine years.

You can’t have both barbecue and golf.

Well, at least that’s the case if you’re the owner of Midtown’s 5th Street Ribs and Blues.

The barbecue joint, at 86 5th Street, closed its doors for good early this week, according to a sign posted on the restaurant’s front door.

“Closed. Thanks for nine great years. Gone to play golf,” according to the sign.

What Now Atlanta made several attempts via email and telephone to reach 5th Street for comment, all of which went unanswered.

    I’ll really miss this place! It wasn’t the best BBQ in town, but their pulled chicken and slaw were very good. They had a good selection of beer, friendly staff, and it was a genuinely nice place to hang out and have good food.
