We believe this to be the Best BBQ! Absolutely delicious food and desserts. The BEST server goes to Katie. We were treated so graciously by the staff and felt so welcome!

I took the family down near Beale St to find us some Memphis style BBQ. First time visitor, so once we arrived I realized that Beale St is not what I consider a "family environment". We did not want to do the typical franchise restaurant environment (Hard Rock, etc...) so we moved on down the road. When we arrived at... More

Yes, I said it. This is the best place to get BBQ in Memphis. For out-of-towners, know that this restaurant is authentic and a great place to visit - but it is a small restaurant and it is popular. As long as you don't go during prime hours, waiting shouldn't be an issue. Now, as far as the food goes,... More

The commissary has awesome barbecue, including their whips, pork shoulder, and nachos. You know it's good when the locals will stand in line to eat there.

Visited the Commissary with a large group from our Memphis office while in town during a recent business trip. I was a bit worried when I saw how small the seating area appeared. The atmosphere was great, the server was super friendly and all 15 at our table LOVED the food. The ribs were juicy, seasoned just right and everyone... More

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
