We love Excell's barbecue! The best in Clarksville. We don't dine in, just get it to go. The grocery really isn't set up for dining. The folks who work there are always friendly. We usually just get the meat- no sides. Yummy good!

This place isn't for folks who think BBQ has red sauce smothered all over it. This is real slow smoked BBQ. People have much closer BBQ places to choose from in the area but this place usually runs out of everything outside of pulled pork around 5 pm. They really don't charge enough for what you get but thats great... More

My husband is sweet person and don't usually say much about an unpleasant situation. But he was very upset after visiting Excell Grocery. We moved to the Sango part of Clarksville about 3 years ago. I had heard that Excell Grocery had great Bar-B-B-Q. So I tried it, and its good. But the staff stopped us from going back. Later... More

Hands down the best BBQ in Clarksville. Grab a sandwich to go or sit down for a full meal. Great BBQ with the sides to boot. Can't get a better BBQ experience anywhere.

I picked up some BBQ for a family lunch. Each item is separate. The salads are in small containers next to the counter. (in a cooler) The bread is off the shelf. The pork BBQ we got was well smoked and it was served with a vinegar based sauce ( which is unusual for this area). While the place does... More

I have had this BBQ twice and it is consistant. It is good for commercial BBQ. I know that everyone is different and you can please the masses with a single flavor profile. The meat is lightly smoked and it has a good flavor. I prefer heavy smoke flavor. For a restaurant it is good. If I had cooked it... More

Store could use some major updating & but the BBQ is the BEST here in Clarksville. They have a friendly staff and all the sides you would need to go with the BBQ.

My wife and I were on a driving vacation in Tenn and Kentucky and eating at places from tripadvisor. This place was suppose to be dumpy but very good. We had went to the Beachaven winery and drove 10 miles to this place to get something to eat. As they said the place looks like a dump but we've eaten... More

The pork "BBQ" is simply not BBQ at all. It is pork that has been put in a crockpot with little to no seasoning. Certainly not smoked or grilled or any similar method. We did try the ribs as well and they were decent, they had at least been grilled. The sides are all straight out of a carton/can from... More

Guy who rated the old shack excel food marginal is deeply deeply deeply delusional!!! Now excels place yep it's tore up. But Marginal on there BBQ "Please" they have exceptional bbq believe that! Yes if you look at the place you would not stop here. Which comes to this comment. Owners spend the money and fix it up.
