Is Athens covered in the Atlanta board? 1 dinner, 2 lunch (BBQ and/or Mexican)

Hi. My dc is West Georgia born and raised, then went to UGA. We will be spending 36 hours in Athens on a larger Georgia tour. It has been 13 years since she graduated, and maybe 8 since she set foot in Athens. Supposedly you guys have great bbq and better then Boston Mexican. It makes sense to me. However, she has no idea where to go to get these things. So we are looking for recommendations for a bbq and a Mexican lunch as well as a list of the 3 most interesting and/or tasty places. Price not a huge issue for the dinner as the rest of our week will probably be in the homes of my various in-laws, so 1 blow out dinner is fine.
