DBA Barbecue Set to Open Two New Restaurant Concepts

Once again, Matt Coggin, acclaimed restauranteur and barbecue enthusiast, has something cooking just in time for spring and summer. Best known for DBA Barbecue, his beloved, family-owned, restaurant and bar located in Virginia-Highland in Atlanta, Georgia since 2009, Coggin is set to open two new restaurant concepts this spring and summer. 

The first, DBA BBQ, will open in late spring in the former Greater Good BBQ restaurant located on Roswell Road in close proximity to Chastain Park. Guests can expect a scaled down version of the original destination’s expansive menu. Traditional barbecue offerings will include pork, brisket, chicken, turkey, wings and sides along with beer, wine and a cocktails served in a fast casual environment. The next concept, DBA Tacos and BBQ, will play off of Coggin’s longtime affection for tacos. The new fast-casual destination will open this summer in Clarkston on East Ponce de Leon Ave. The 2,600-square foot space will feature an airy, window-filled environment with a clean design and boasts a patio and plenty of parking. While dine-in service will be available, the focus will also be on takeout, which includes major renovation to the existing drive-thru. 

“Offering drive-thru service is an evolution due to the pandemic and was an organic next step to our offerings. Take-out and delivery are still in incredibly high demand at our original location and we’re looking forward to providing an easy and efficient way to get our patrons excellent and affordable food quickly,” says Matt. “We’re looking forward to being a part of the Clarkston community, which is quickly growing and has a lot of promise.” 

As far as the menu, Coggin will be serving a mix of traditional barbecue offerings and street tacos that will be unique to the new location and a signature of the DBA brand. Beer, wine, and select cocktails will also be available. Taco lovers can get a preview of what’s to come at DBA Barbecue where they will continue to serve the Virginia-Highland community and beyond. 

“At all our locations and with our catering services, we will continue our commitment to customer service along with serving delicious, food made with care featuring fresh and high quality ingredients. We’re excited for what’s to come and are thankful for all the support over the past 14+ years.”

Additional details will be announced in the coming weeks. For more information about DBA Barbecue, DBA BBQ and DBA Tacos & BBQ, visit DBA Barbecue online at www.dbabbq.com and stay connected on Instagram at @dba.barbecue and on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/DBABarbecue.
