The wait was long, which supported high expectations. The servers were not attentive, seemed bothered by any requests. The ribs were edible, I’ve heard so many good things about this place and their ribs, so was very disappointed when they were tough. The sides seemed “old”, not fresh. Had the same experience twice. Go to Corky’s, go to Central... even Rendezvous is better.

We had great ribs, tamales and greens in this classic Memphis eatery. The beer is cold and the service was a bit slow getting started, but ended fine. Definitely worth a visit.

It was awesome - we went for lunch so the place was quiet. Servings are large. Service was efficient. Nice time.

We waited in a well organized and quick line to enjoy dinner here. We were lucky to be seated in a room next to live blues. Service was warm and friendly and the garlic shrimp was mouth watering.
