We like to go to Captain Johns. The BBQ is always good. They have great baked beans & potatoes sald. Tea is good too. My husband loves their fries, I would rather have the potatoes salad. The slaw is real good. People working they have always been nice. We get the dinner platter. It is so much on it we... More

I love this place.......rightly priced, for great tasting food! I gave a party and served the pic- nic package pork shoulder, it was the hit of the party! This BBQ is great with white wine or any beer of your taste. 5 stars.......for the Pic- Nic Package! Would recommend this place to anyone!

I've eaten a ton of BBQ in my day, all over the South, and I can say without hesitation or hyperbole that this is my favorite spot. Their pulled pork is delicious and the ribs are excellent, but what puts this place on the map is the sauce. The staff is very friendly and the clientele is about as diverse... More

This one is truly a TREASURE! Somewhat hidden off the beaten path. The barbecue is excellent . Love their sauce, too. Very informal dining area where the locals are called by name by a friendly staff. Be sure and try out Friday's special: Fried Catfish. That is if you can get in. You may have to wait a minute or...

Captain John's was one of the first places I ate when I first moved here. No offense to the famous chains around Memphis, but nobody does cue like the local mom and pop joints. I absolutely love this place. Whether you're ordering in, driving through, or grabbing a family pack to take with you, you will not be disappointed. This... More

This place surpasses many of the more "talked about" barbecue places in the area. They have a spicy vinegar based sauce that tastes excellent. Nice and friendly staff as well.

Captain John's doesn't have any ambiance, but it does have good BBQ. It is not the best in the area, but ALL Memphis BBQ is wonderful. Here you get good sized portions at a reasonable price. The staff is very friendly. You order and then pick up your food, so there is a fast food atmosphere, but it is good... More

Eating inside is not great, but they have a very convenient drive up window. Ribs and barbecue sandwiches are excellent.
