Great food and great atmosphere!!

The food was definitely worth the wait. When there are people standing around waiting 30+ minutes for a table, then it's a good indication of a great place to eat. The wait staff was great and the food was delicious, tender and very flavorful. Wonderful family atmosphere.

Service was bad as it was way too crowded. Food was cool not hot. Did not live up to its name. Easily accessible from highway. Too much fat in barbecue.

We had Memphis BBQ Co. prepare lunch for a business meeting so I got to try ribs, pulled pork, sausage, fried green tomatoes, slaw and of course the sauce. Everything was absolutely delicious. I can't wait to go back and sit down and eat at the restaurant.

The reason you go to a BBQ place is to eat BBQ. It really is pretty simple. Memphis Barbecue Co satisfies on that with ribs, brisket, pulled pork, smoked chicken, smoked sausage, pulled chicken and wings. There are plenty of appetizers and sides to choose from as well. Now I go to a BBQ place to enjoy the fall-of-the-bone, low... More

Went there based on a local recommendation (the woman working at the Harley Davidson store next to Graceland). Who knew it was famous as Guy Fieri has visited during his show for Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. While the food was good, it wasn't as flavorful as the other BBQ place I visited in Memphis. Weird that it's called Memphis BBQ... More

Memphis Barbecue Co. has won award after award and contest after contest for their tremendously tasty cue. The pork skins, doused with your choice of sauce, are simply one of the best freebies at the restaurant. I always take people from out of town to this barbecue joint to eat. Be aware, on the weekends, there will be a wait.

Don't waste your time with Corkys or Rendevous. This is real deal Memphis BBQ. The fresh pork rinds are awesome and the turnip greens rock! Always the best BBQ!!

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
