Want to know what puts the “rock” in Rockdale County? Mad Dog’s BBQ does. From smokehouse staples like brisket, ribs, chicken, and pulled pork, to the sides that can make or break a ‘cue experience, Mad Dog’s has you covered, nay slathered, in Conyers.
Sandwiches here are what you want — tender, juicy meat, rich sauce, and soft bread; the Brunswick stew is a fantastic example of what the dish ought to be, and for dessert…some of the best brownies you’re going to eat outside of your grandma’s kitchen.
While you’re in Conyers, you can visit the Haralson Mill covered bridge (one of fifteen covered bridges in the state), or take a trip to the Georgia International Horse Park. Built for the 1996 Olympic Games, the GIHP offers year-round events, many of them free to the public. If you’re in a contemplative mood you might pay a visit to the Georgia Veterans’ War Memorial and Walk of Heroes, and take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices of Georgian soldiers in battles of the 20th century, or admire the bonsai that have been carefully manicured for over 65 years by Cistercian monks at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit.
