Decent BBQ

We've eaten here twice now. Overall decent BBQ, nothing spectacular but decent. Had the catfish one time as well which was a little mushy.

Sampled the BBQ it was good, I ordered the ribeye medium rare and it was the first time in a very long time I got what I ordered. The steak was great.

My family has pretty much become regulars here. You have to try the fried green beans. They are out of this world good. Be sure to ask for the Comeback sauce. The smoked turkey ribs (oh my goodness)! That's all that I will say about them. The brisket is too die for! My wife loves the chicken tenders. Oh yeah... More

Don't go for the BBQ, despite the fact they have won several awards. Don't go for the atmosphere, it is outdated and needs a facelift. But... go for the Prime Rib special. They smoke that bad boy, and serve up the hunk of meat with a loaded baked potato, and a fresh tossed salad. Did I mention they make their... More

The service was unprofessional. The place was too crowded. The tables were too close together. The décor was uninspired. Finally, the bbq was just average.

When these guys are on their game they are fabulous, but as often as not we get mushy BBQ and there is no place for that in the Memphis area. I sure do love them when they are on their game, but we just don't go any more due to severe inconsistency.

My Husband and I split the nachos and were full! very reasonably priced for the amount of food you get. Skip the beer and just get water 2 beers cost the same as the nachos. Simple atmosphere with a choice of outside seating. Service is friendly and helpful. We will be back. A Great local BBQ place!

Ok, first of all let me preface by saying I had been told how awesome this place was by a few people so my expectations were a little too high. I have head several things there and I can honestly say that it is a "Good" place to eat. They aren't the best BBQ joint around but in the Memphis... More
