This award winning bbq, in fact I'm pretty sure these flavors have won so many awards they can't even compete anymore, is located in Sin City herself Las Vegas! Why hit the snooty restaurants with piddly servings when you can be served American style and take home leftovers to savor when you return from your 2 AM Poker session! I... More

Probably the best BBQ restaurant we've ever been to. Ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender and delicious! Great selection of sauces. Very affordable. Gotta have the fried pickles!!!

My husband and I went to "Memphis" on our way back home to Los Angeles. We love to try BBQ in different places since BBQ can be so different depending on the types of sauces or dry rubs that might be used. My husband tried the "Burnt Ends" dinner. Really good flavor, they mix up their sauces which makes a... More

East Warm Springs Road, write it down. Memphis Championship is our all time favourite BBQ joint, and not just in Las Vegas! Mike Phillips’ meats have been bringing home top level BBQ awards for years and the long dry-cooked ribs, brisket and chicken are sublime. This eatery is warm and friendly; there are large booths, big gingham covered tables and... More

Good BBQ away from the strip in Las Vegas. Order via phone for drive up take out. Ordering was easy, avoided the hassle of strip, but the pick up was slow.

Traditional chopped pork bbq as well as briskette and collards and much more. Inexpensive but very good. Owner has won multiple national awards for his briskette.

This is an excellent choice off the strip for some good southern BBQ. Nice decor and atmosphere, good service friendly staff. The portions are plentiful and the options are varied. Prices are very fair for the market. Enjoy some sweet and sticky sauce, and of course expect slaw with that pulled pork! Enjoy it Memphis style!

Great tasting BBQ and no need to deal with the crowds and chaos of the strip. I enjoyed my meal (BBQ combo with Baby Back Ribs and Chicken, red beans and rice and steamed vegetables. Excellent service; reasonable prices. Very nice décor and ambience: stayed longer than I had planned. Will definitely visit again when I'm in the area.

We actually ate at Memphis Championship Barbecue on Nellis Blvd. and I understand they have grown have several other restaurants. The first time we ate there was on the 4th of July, 2002 and we enjoyed it. This time, not so much. The bbq was dry and little flavor. The sides were okay. We had their collard greens, but there...
