Arrived late in Germantown ask a gentleman at a gas station where to eat eat. He suggested the commissary. Could not be happier. The food was great . The atmosphere was awesome. I couldn't believe how reasonable price was. I will definitely be back the next time I am in memphis.

I've seen the television shows and reviews of the Germantown Commissary and on a recent pass through visit of Memphis, decided to visit. Of course reviewing barbecue is tremendously subjective, especially when it's not your region. I would never attempt to review NC bbq, for example, it's just not to my taste. That said, I'm a Oklahoma and KC BBQ... More

This was place was recommended by the hotel desk clerk and man was she right on point. The service was great, the food delicious and the décor interesting. We came to Memphis to eat BBQ and celebrate our wedding anniversary. Too bad I was not very hungry since Mondays are all you can eat ribs. Parking is difficult but whatever... More

Opinions vary but there's no finer BBQ than the Commissary. Made a huge to go order and it was handled expertly. Ribs are incredibly tender and the pulled pork is top notch. Beware the hot sauce though...it is hot. High quality baked beans. The thing not to miss though...banana pudding. It's a-maze-ing.

The food was good, service was great, but the restaurant is too small to accommodate all the diners clamoring to get in! The entry when we were there was chaotic with people waiting to be seated, people placing and waiting for take out orders, and people paying their bills all in a very small space! I realize that with a... More

Each time we go to visit family we have food from the Commissary. Whether eating in or carryout the food is excellent. It is a small restaurant but always busy. So go early or plan on a wait. From ribs to pulled pork all was tender and tasty. We had the BBQ nachos which are nachos with pulled pork. The... More

I've been here several times and I've never found a thing that wasn't amazing. I was a little nervous about the sweet potato fries that someone recommended but ... so glad we got them. They are HOMESTYLE fries ... not commercial ones and they were amazing. Our family had the ribs, one of the largest baked potatoes I've ever seen... More

I should have sent it back. My ribs were skinny and dry. Wife's pulled pork was good. My fault-worst ever ribs should have been returned. Expect the best!!
