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

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... 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

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
