If you like authentic slow cooked BBQ you will love this place. We spent almost 10 years in Memphis and know good BBQ. Both my wife and I had the sampler plate. Ample portions for the price. The ribs were meaty, lean and smoked to perfection. The pork sandwich was very tasty and free of gristle or fat. The beef... More

I enjoyed my visit to Slabtown BBQ and the food was good. I had the pork ribs and the meat fell off of the bone indicating a quality BBQ. The flavor of the meat was very good and you could eat it on its own. However, the Texas Heat sauce that I had, while flavorful, was not even warm. It... More

The pulled pork sandwich is special. You can tell immediatly that the chef takes pride in his smoking. My grandson had the brisket,whiich was equally great. If you love BBQ this is your place.

There is an open door in the wall to an adjoining bar, which is shared, once again through an open door in the wall to Acapulco's Gold mexican restaurant. If you sit... More

Stopped for lunch at this place and we got the pulled pork sandwich. The service was great and quick, but the food was just okay. I have had b-b-q in many areas and many states. This one had no spark to it, even when using the spicy sauce. If you're in the area, you might consider trying it, but otherwise,... More

Groupon got me in the door, but all I had to do was follow mu nose as they were smoking some delicious meat curbside. We tried the brisket sandwich (excellent smokey flavor and great texture) and the juiciest barbecue chicken we have ever had. These guys use the smoker to infuse a lot of flavor and it is how good...
