Great BBQ place. As soon as you walk in the smell of meat cooking starts the digestive juices flowing before you even get to your seat. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. The service was wonderful, ask for Jurnee, and the menu was full of tempting choices but I went with the standard ribs and pork shoulder with baked beans and slaw. My wife had the meat salad with beef brisket. The slaw was OK, but the baked beans were some of the best I've had. The 1/2 rack of ribs were tender and the sauce (mild for me) was tasty. The chopped pork shoulder was the best. My wife gave the meat salad two thumbs up. To top it off the made from scratch banana pudding was out of this world. If passing through Memphis check this place out.

Want real, authentic Memphis BBQ? Do yourself a favor and avoid getting sucked into the tourist trap that is Rendezvous - because BBQ at One and Only is better anyways!

We popped in here for dinner while driving through Memphis en route to Nashville. Hubby ordered the pulled pork and sausage plate with sides of deviled eggs and twice baked potato salad. I ordered sliced turkey with sides of BBQ beans and coleslaw. The sausage, beans and the potato salad were the winners...until we tried the banana pudding dessert. YUM! It was such a large dish, though, we couldn't eat it all. And we felt a little guilty leaving so much behind. Next time...

One and Only isn't much to look at from the outside - it's just a diner setting - but who cares? The food is excellent.

Enjoy!

We had read about this place and wanted to try it. We were a bit dubious when we saw it was at a shopping mall, but went for it anyway. And were we ever glad we did! It's a very casual place, but the food was exceptional. My husband and I were wrapping up a 2 week trip driving to various spots in TN, and trying BBQ along the way, and this was one of the best! When I couldn't decide between dry rub or wet, the server offered to split the order - perfect! Staff was friendly and the price was reasonable.

While at the hospital we dined on their BBQ takeout. We had the jumbo BBQ sandwich potato salad and fries. It was excellent! Very flavorful meat and potato salad. You've got to try it. Worth the trip.

My husband and I recently came to Memphis for a mini vacation before a week long business trip. Being in the land of bbq, we knew we had many options to choose from. We are so thrilled that we ended up at One and Only BBQ. The food was fantastic and our server Jurnee took great care of us. She provided the type of service that gains customer loyalty to your establishment. She went above and beyond to ensure all of our requests were made. Everything was so delicious we bought some bbq sauce to take back home to MN with us. Well done! Next time we are in TN we will be back!
