Great Spaces: ’Cue Barbecue



One of Fourteen included in Our Great Spaces for Your Corporate & Holiday Events

’Cue Barbecue  
5260 Peachtree Industrial Blvd
Peachtree Corners, GA 30071

It was hard to think straight with the outrageously good smell of smoked meat wafting through the air of this cozy, casual, and charming restaurant while I spoke to General Manager Drew Hinsch and Catering Manager Sarah Sewell at ’Cue Barbecue. Southern hospitality is the name of the game here, and BONUS, they pride themselves on providing that same level of service wherever they cater your special event, along with their delicious food.

“We love the whole package. We’re not just a restaurant that kind of caters. And we’re not just a catering company that kind of has a restaurant. And now we’re venturing out into the event space,” alleged Hinsch, referring to the new Hickory Room they’re opening up next door by the end of September – just in time for those holiday parties!

Most people in these parts don’t have to be sold on the idea of barbecue, but in case you were wondering, everything here is homemade, from their sauces to their pork sausages containing nothing but meat and seasoning—no chemicals, no preservatives, no fillers. “We bake our bread fresh every day. When you come in for lunch or dinner, it’s still warm,” guaranteed Sewell.

Hinsch described the 4-9-hour process of smoking the meats with hickory wood in their giant smoker; the type of meat determines the length of time. “I don’t mind going home smelling like a brisket every day,” chimed Sewell.

While they cater to barbecue aficionados of all kinds, whether your preference is Coastal Carolina, Inland Carolina, Kansas City, or a hot vinegar-style sauce, their chefs can also make vegetarian versions of most of their offerings, like the vegetarian lasagna. Ordering items that are not on the menu is not unheard of here.

All of their food is gluten-free except for the mac ’n cheese and banana pudding. Even the chips, nachos and sauces are gluten-free.

In the restaurant or at your location of choice, Sewell invites you to take a little break for the holidays; have ’Cue do all the work, while you sit back and enjoy the good food and precious time with your family and friends.

Holy Smokes, What a Good Holiday Gathering!

The Hickory Room is a dedicated event space able to seat 80 people comfortably with enough space remaining for a cocktail hour reception. For a seated only event, up to 100 guests can be accommodated. A cocktail and passed appetizer experience can be enjoyed by 150 in this neutral space ready to be decorated however you like.

It comes equipped with all you need to present slide shows at rehearsal dinners, or PowerPoint presentations at a working lunch, with no interruptions because it’s completely private.

The Restaurant at ’Cue Barbecue lends itself well to smaller parties lasting two to three hours, with 25-30 people seated together.

How About a Holiday Party with ’Cue Barbecue?

Good News! ’Cue Barbecue offers off-site catering! We’re in the South East, people love their barbecue here. ’Cue can help with as little or as much as you need to plan your holiday gathering. From simple food delivery to full service for the duration of the event. If you need a party planner, ’Cue can provide planning services for you as well. They can handle all rentals of linens, dishes, tables, and chairs. “We’ve been doing this for 10 years; catering and service is not new to us. We’ll meet all of your needs. We’ll cater to you hand and foot,” said Sewell.

Accommodating and flexible, anything on their regular menu is available for your holiday party. Most special requests can be granted by their in-house chefs.

Meat lovers will swoon over their brisket, ribs, pork, all-white, hand-pulled chicken meat and smoked wings. Apparently fried bologna sandwiches are also very popular here.

“The quality of the food is excellent. Everybody always enjoys it. I don’t think you can really beat the price-point,” said Hinsch.

Book it!

Your 4-hour party in The Hickory Room should be booked a month in advance. The sooner the better, especially heading towards Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Monday to Thursday Lunch (11 a.m.-3 p.m.) $200
Monday to Thursday Dinner (5 p.m.-9 p.m.)  $300

Packages range from $25-$50 per person for Friday-Saturday lunch (11 a.m.-3 p.m.) or dinner (5 p.m.-9 p.m.). These hours can be extended if needed.

The Basic Package at $25 per person includes 2 meats, bread, two side choices and drinks.

The Top Tier Package at $50 per person includes passed hors d’oeuvres, up to three meats, a salad bar, three sides, tea and soft drinks as well as dessert.

Off-Site Catering

Pricing really depends on the complexity of the event, what you’re ordering, and how much food is required; this can be customized depending on your preferences.

  • Low: $10-$15 per person. Choice of two sides – beans, slaw, mac ’n cheese, bread and a meat sandwich with choice of pork, chicken or beef. No drinks, no dessert.
  • Medium: $15-$20 per person. Includes ribs, specialty side items like seasonal Brussels Sprouts, drinks, and desserts.
  • High: $30 per person. Full on-site service and wait staff, clean up dishes, drink station, bartender, set up, buffet line, and sometimes they bring a smoker. Includes hors d’oeuvres and desserts, the whole shebang.


The restaurant offers beer and wine. In the Hickory Room, options range from open bar to cash bar, with some variations of each. When catering, the customer normally provides the alcohol and ’Cue provides someone to serve it.

Call General Manager Drew Hinsch or Catering Manager Sarah Sewell to discuss your smoking hot holiday party at 470-299-5117.

Ted’s Montana Grill

Ted’s Montana Grill’s world-famous Bacon Cheeseburger has everything: a perfectly cooked patty, fresh toppings and full flavor. The burger comes with the option of any of Ted’s regular or premium sides, but critics say pairing it with the salt and pepper onion rings is the way to go.

For an even tastier experience, follow this dish up with Ted’s Apple Pecan Crisp, which includes delicious apple pie, caramel sauce, a crunchy oatmeal pecan crust and vanilla ice cream.

For vegetarians, or anyone who isn’t a beef fan, BurgerFi’s VegeFi Burger is a great option. It includes a vegan multigrain bun, a fresh-made veggie patty, BurgerFi sauce and your choice of toppings. It also comes with the option of one of the three sides: hand-cut fries, onion rings or the tasty Cry + Fry basket combo.

Dog Days Hot Dogs & Burgers

The All-American Burger comes in three patty sizes: 6-oz., 1⁄2-pound and 12-oz. It’s topped with American cheese, onions, tomatoes and lettuce. It’s an all-time fan favorite at Dog Days Hot Dogs & Burgers because of its unforgettable flavor and classic taste.

This meal comes with your choice of side, but experienced diners recommend the cheesy cheese totchos, which are tater tots covered with mac and cheese, cheddar, mozzarella and nacho cheese sauce.

Marlow’s Tavern

If you’re dining at Marlow’s Tavern, the Classic Tavern Burger is a must. While the burger is simple, the delicate seasoning and fresh toppings take it to a whole new level. The burger comes with a toasted sesame brioche roll and the delicious house-made tomato bacon jam.

Marlow’s Tavern also offers a grilled chicken patty substitute for those who don’t eat beef. To top off this perfect meal, order a side of Marlow’s hand-cut Tavern fries.

BurgerIM Gourmet Burgers

If you’re dining at BurgerIM, you need to try the Spanish Beef Burger. It’s a nicely grilled patty topped with grilled jalapeño, leaf lettuce and pepper jack cheese. The flavors go together wonderfully, but the jalapeño peppers add a kick of spice that isn’t for everyone.

BurgerIM also offers you a choice of premium toppings, but I recommend adding bacon for some extra crunch. If you aren’t sure what kind of burger you want, BurgerIM also gives customers the opportunity to try multiples with their duo or trio packs.

Farm Burger

Farm Burger’s No. 2 Housemade Veggie Burger is another great alternative for vegans or vegetarians. The patty is made out of quinoa, black-eyed peas, kale, roasted mushrooms, sweet potatoes and spices that pull all the flavors together.

Veggie Burger pairs well with the Farm Burger fries, which are hand-cut, tossed with spicy garlic and covered in parmesan and herbs. For dessert, indulge in the Farm Burger classic chocolate milkshake, which gets sweeter with every sip.

Cheeseburger Bobby’s

Even though Cheeseburger Bobby’s classic burger is legendary, the Bucket List reigns supreme. This dish, which can be ordered off Bobby’s Specialty Burger List, includes two perfectly grilled beef patties, a fried egg, an onion ring, American cheese, Bobby’s sauce and a pickle.

While this sounds like a hodgepodge of different foods, the flavors meld perfectly with every bite. Pairing this burger with a side of freshly made onion rings makes the meal even more enjoyable.
