Thompson Brothers BBQ is owned and operated by the Thompson brothers who are originally from Tulsa, OK and have multiple connections to Notre Dame Alumni. Horace Thompson, a former Georgia Bulldog football player, is a high school teammate of former Irish football players Tony and Reggie Brooks. Carroll Thompson attended high school with ND Tulsa, OK Club President, Lamar Guillory. The restaurant’s meat smoker and grills were built by a construction company owned by ND alum, Ray Miller, Jr., Oklahoma style barbecue is best described as a dry rub, but not as dry as the classic Texas barbecue, with flavorful sauce component that doesn’t contain the tangy/vinegary taste characteristic of the southeastern region of the United States.

Not only do the Thompson Brothers think their barbecue is special, several Atlanta area magazines, food critics, and trip advisors have also rated Thompson Brothers BBQ as part of Atlanta’s Best landscape (see links below).

So come out and enjoy great food, fun and fellowship with ND alums from Tulsa to Atlanta on June 17th!!!!
