"Owners Robert Owens & Gregory Vivier opened their first Grand Champion BBQ in July of 2011 in Roswell. Since then, they have brought their award-winning BBQ to other locations in Milton, Atlanta, & beyond!


A focus on the BBQ and highlighting the natural flavors of the meat along with flavorful sides have earned them a lot of attention. The Atlanta Journal Constitution awarded them the best beef brisket, macaroni & cheese, and baby back ribs in 2011. Atlanta Magazine recognized them as best BBQ runner up in the state in 2013. In 2015, Zagat named them as one of the top 13 BBQ joints in the nation.


Robert grew up in the metro Atlanta area and calls Roswell home. Gregory started his training in France & Switzerland before also moving to Roswell. The two worked in fine dining restaurants in Atlanta for over 10 years and together have over 30 years of experience in the kitchen and BBQ pits.


Robert & Gregory are happy to serve you their BBQ and thank you for your patronage. They look forward to growing the Grand Champion BBQ family and bringing their BBQ to a community near you.


From our pits to yours: Grand Champion BBQ welcomes you to our family."
