The food was great. The brisket was the most tender brisket I have ever had. I had the spaghetti and potato salad as my sides. Both excellent. The only reason I did not give 5 stars was the service. Our waitress was very slow to refill drinks and was a bit surly.

Not to start a debate, but IMO, this is the Best BBQ Memphis has to offer hands down!! Yes, it is NOT in Memphis, TN....but they have the trophies to prove they have beat all of the Memphis BBQ shops all around the area....for sure!! Doesn't matter what you order, you won't be disappointed for sure!!! I've eaten Kansas City... More

I ate there with family on New Years day. Every meal was brought out with a small container of black-eyed peas. I thought that was a nice touch. The food was good. I had the Pitmaster and it was plenty of food. I had beans and bbq spaghetti for sides. The beans were good but I guess I expected more... More

The nachos are the best. They are a little different but its awesome with the pulled pork on top. Great servers and manager check on us two r three times. It was nice to see that the staff was so friendly and helpful.

The place was busy, however, they had more than enough employees to service all.We were greeted upon entrance, seated and brought pork rinds to start off. I ordered the brisket sandwich and... More

For years I've heard people rave about southern BBQ. I used to dismiss it as just the party line on the subject. Once again, I was dead wrong. I was in Horn Lake on business a few months back and stopped at the Memphis BBQ company for lunch. Wow, the food was insanely good. I went back three more times... More

Saw this on DDD (foodnetwork) and wanted to try it. First it was so loud that we had to raise our voice just to talk to the waitress. We thought the food would be worth it but it was not. Don't know how they won all of those awards because we have had better in GA, AL, and TX.

Huge pork rinds dusted with dry rub and a ranch style dip. Buy a bag or 10 to take with you or you will be kicking yourself later. Award winning ribs if you couldn't tell by the signs and huge awards that are everywhere or by the feature on "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives".

Not our first trip here, but we took someone from Kansas City to taste Memphis BBQ! We love the fresh fried pork skins and the cheese fritters, he was equally impressed. We ordered both dry and wet baby back ribs and a brisket sandwich. Sides included fries, onion rings, fried okra, cole slaw and turnip greens, all were great. Our... More
