Of course we found this somewhat hidden place on Trip Advisor. Got there at open and bought my staff a lunch. Everything was very good. Loved the ribs the best. We also had pulled pork which was good as well.

The ribs and pulled pork were outstanding. Atmosphere very plain but you're going for the BBQ! Order at the counter & pickup at the counter.

Being a frequent customer of Sonny's, I thought a little hole in the wall establishment wouldn't be able to hold up. Not only was I thoroughly impressed, but I was blown away by how flavorful and tender the meat was.

I had been hearing about this place for months from a coworker, so my expectations were high. When we got there, the parking lot was small, but full and the line was through the door on a rainy day.

Poppa's BBQ is fabulous Memphis Style BBQ. Portions are good, taste and quality is superb .Pricing isn't bad either. You have to work around limited hours, Mon. through Fri. only 10:30 AM to 4:00 PM, but worth timing your lunch break. They also do catering for private events. I will be trying this out for my next event.

Good pulled pork sandwiches but not life changing. Sauce is a bit spicy and was expecting more sweet. Good but probably not going back.

This place doesn't look like much from the outside. But they serve some of the best BBQ I've had - at a great price, too. Very quick and friendly service. I'm already planning my next visit!

The food and service here is great! Real, homemade, melt in your mouth barbeque. They're moving just across the street to a larger space, yum!

Had a party of twenty and found this site here. Everyone loved the food and will go back and order again before leaving area. Great food! Note we took back to hotel as this is really a takeout place.
