Great barbecue! I don't think there is anything on the menu that you won't like. But be sure to try the BBQ Nachos for a real tasty appetizer.

We read the reviews for this place and it was so true! Ribs were juicy, pulled pork stuffed potatoe was great! Had to try the blackberry creme brulee!! You have to get the creme brulee! Our server was Lauren, who was super polite with a little sass! Lol! Perfect!

My son (who is moving to the area) took me to this place and told me to be "open minded" since I am a huge fan of Owensboro (Kentucky) Barbeque (Mutton especially, which isn't served in too many places). I ordered the pulled pork/pulled chicken plate. Most "Memphis" barbeque is too dry for my taste (they mostly used "rub" rather... More

Great food huge portions. If you get the platter it will be hard to finish. This place has the best corn bread I have ever eaten. When I visit this restaurant I over due it because everything is delicious.

Need to have a better day or your car broke down, dog died, stubbed your toe, lost your job and can no longer play the blues? You need pork rinds. Not just any pork rinds, MBQ pork rinds. When nothing else will do and... More

I enjoyed my meal so much on my first visit to Memphis that I went back two more times in less than a week. The food was delicious and the prices were less than I had expected to pay.

Though Memphis has a number of great BBQ contenders, Memphis BBQ beats them all hands down, from the pulled pork or beef to the brisket, there simply is no better! Neely's Interstate BBQ does a great job also, but the atmosphere, service, parking and location along with a great sauce, puts them over the top. The corn bread is the... More

We had a party of 18 and were meeting at 6:30 pm. With their no reservation / no seating in advance policy we thought it would be a long wait. We were wrong! The hostess station was attentive and friendly, and within 10 minutes of the last of our party arriving, we were being seated. The service was engaging and... More
