Pretty good BBQ

Our company had excel cater a large amount of pulled pork for a luncheon, and it was really good. We picked it up, but it was still hot and fresh. The only thing I would say is put some sauce on the side for folks who like that, and when you package large amounts of food to go make it... read more

We tried this place out this passed weekend and it was really good BBQ. It is better then all of the BBQ places in Clarksville. Give them a try.

The appearance and ambiance of this place is not for the faint-of-heart. It is a locals' favorite for BBQ. Portions of BBQ very adequate. Baked beans not tasty. My take-out was not provided with any BBQ sauce, so the meat was kind of dry.

Got the pulled pork ... it didn't look pulled but rather like it was run through a blender, it was mushy, tasted like vinegar and smoke and nothing else. Very disappointed. The sauce tasted like straight vinegar with some sugar mixed in. I really don't know what everyone is talking about anymore, years ago they were the best. Not sure... More

Best BBQ sandwiches, ribs & chicken!! Salads are GREAT! Baked beans delicious! Mmmm the pies!! The staff here are so nice, friendly and efficient. You can even get a whole smoked turkey for special holidays or events. (pre-order) Try this place and you will love it too!

Drove off Hwy 24 for this BBQ. Out of the way but worth the detour. Great BBQ pork sandwiches & ribs. VERY rustic - but authentic.

I frequent this establishment at least three times a month and I never get tired of it. I always get a pulled pork sandwich and corn nuggets. When you pull in you see a place that looks as if it belongs in Mayberry somewhere and the smell of good smoked BBQ fills the air. We sit in the back where... More

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
