Pulled into the parking lot @ 7:30pm Sunday night and the place was over-flowing with customers arriving and departing....was told to expect a 45 minute wait but 10 minutes later the server seated us...wait staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and suggested we try the slider sampler platter: pulled pork, beef brisket and steak burger then split a few side...

There were 11 of us who drove the distance from Niagara to the famous Memphis Fire BBQ on a Saturday night at 6:30. They do not take reservations so we were prepared to wait. But 90 minutes??. We did and it was worth it. My wife and I each had a rack and two sides, all great. The smoked ribs... More

Stopped in for lunch at the Memphis Fire a few weeks ago. We chose to go mid week around 1:30pm to avoid a crowded restaurant. Lunch crowd was just leaving so parking and getting a table was no problem. I had the brisket platter and loved it. The meat was tender and the sides were a perfect compliment. The waitresses...

This is quite a unique place. Good food, big portions, cold beer and excellent desserts. A real retro experience. My wife and I split the Beef Brisket Platter (no sandwich). Should have ordered the sandwich individually since the Platter was a bit small for two...but we had room for delicious dessert! Well worth a try!

Finally went to the Memphis Fire BBQ and really enjoyed it.. Very family oriented with good specials and BBQ meats. The dessert selection is wide with many homemade choices. It reminded me abit of Hillbilly Heaven as far as the food goes. Yes just the food part !! (I did enjoy going to Hillbilly Heaven though) The servers are very... More

Four of us went for dinner upon the recommendation of the locals. It is reminiscent of a home town diner with good old comfort food. Between us we had the Pulled Pork (excellent), the Brisket (OK) the Ribs ( too salty and spicy, but my husband makes the best smoked ribs so the comparison is not fair), beans (good), Mac... More

Oh yum! The Sneaky Cheese is absolutely awesome...add the bacon crumbles. The man 'n cheese should be illegal...it is way too good. My only complaint is the iced tea, it's not sweet which is ok, however it is strange tasting....not for me. I wish they had normal iced tea. It's ok, I'll stick to pop or water....or the awesome peach... More

We heard about this place from a friend and heard it was on You Gotta Eat Here so we tried it out. We were lucky enough to be there for the Fried Chicken special and had to try the brisket because that really defines a good BBQ place. Both were to die for and the sides were nice aswell. Try...

Stopped at Memphis Fire BBQ on our way from Niagara Falls to Toronto. Saw the place on Food network, read the reviews and gave it a try. What a great decision. We had the brisket and the pulled pork. Both were wonderful. Mac and Cheese was excellent, as were the beans. Value for what we paid was great, staff were... More

My husband, my daughter and the two grandkids had lunch at Memphis Fire BBQ last week. It was likely the closest thing to real Texas BBQ that we've experienced in Canada. We own a home in Florida so we've experienced many a BBQ restaurant in our time. The place was jammed which tells you something right off the bat. The... More
