Food here was very good. The sauce was a little bit runny, but the taste was superior. I got the pulled pork sandwich with fries. Not a bad price, either. You can get a drink, meat, and fries or potato salad for like $9-$11 bucks.

My husband and I are both BBQ snobs and we were not disappointed in the least. We both had the rib plate with hot links but should have shared. The portions were huge! The ribs were fall off the bone and had a great flavor. The hot links are good but they definitely had a kick to them. The beans... More

You want to get sauce on the fries. There is an indoor tempered glass door smoker. You can watch the meat. Very casual atmosphere and you may smell of smoke. THE RIB TIPS WITH SAUCE ON THE FRIES!!!!! The line will sometimes go out the door! Meat is tender with great texture.

About every 2 months I get a craving for E&L BBQ. The ribs are huge and the meat is falling off the bone. I always have take-out with beans and potato salad and I honestly have enough for 2 meals. The sauce and flavor of the ribs is above and beyond any other I have tasted. I would recommend E... More

After reading "Best Ribs in Mississippi" on another review I probably set the bar too high. Mine were tender, but not quite falling off the bone. I'd go back. Good sides of potato salad and beans. Rib plate was $12.95. It's in a pretty sparse area of the city, daytime visits advised for most.

There are no problems in this restaurant. The sauce is tasty, the meat drips off the bone, the flavor unique. Definitely the best place to get BBQ in town!

I usually avoid places like this that are in bad neighborhoods. E &L is the exception. Everything here is good, but the rib tips are a tender, smoky masterpiece. The fries are good, but get sauce on them. Get sauce on everything!

Don't be fooled by these fancy restaurants falsely advertising BBQ, THIS IS THE REAL DEAL! Although I never go inside due to a little old run down building in a not so peaceful neighborhood, I don't let that block my BBQ blessing. I just send the Men folks to do my dirty work and bring me some rib tips with... More

I dig 'hole in the wall' Southern BBQ places as - growing up - that is where the best BBQ was....checked out reviews and with a recommendation from Concierge decided to check it out...ordered a full rack of ribs and 6 wings.........Ribs were fatty, too boiled and wings were deep fried and wet with sauce. Almost inedible......not good at all.....maybe... More
