This little place lived up to all of its ratings for excellent barbecue. Does not serve brisket, but the ribs, pork, sausage and all the sides are great. Be sure to get there early as it is kinda small and a local favorite. Hannah our hostess got us in fast and was a pleasure to work with.

Saw this on Food Network Channel and said that when I go back to Memphis I have to go eat there. It was a wonderful experience.

The food was good, we had pulled pork and ribs. Really loved the baked beans. Be prepared to wait and in close quarters. Service wasn't very good.

Maybe I've heard too much hype over the years but this was pretty good Q but nothing exceptional. The ribs were dry and scrawny but good enough. The pulled pork tastes like what I make at home. I did enjoy the sauce and caramel cake.

Went here for all you can eat ribs night. The food was good and it came quick. Great atmosphere, my server was great she even got me a box for what I couldn't finish! For the price you couldn't beat it. Will definitely come back here again when I'm back in Memphis. The bbq nachos looked awesome.

This place was highly recommended by a family friend, and I'm glad we got there before closing. It was a Saturday so we were surprised that they would close at 9pm. We were quickly seated, and our server was asking me what I wanted to drink, almost before I sat down. She was great, and very welcoming and with a... More

We loved our rib dinner! We were staying close by and through luck ending up having dinner here. The food is so delicious there is really nothing more to say. You will not be disappointed if you eat here.

In town for a family reunion and decided to try my luck. The food was great in this tiny place. Make sure you get there and be ready to eat. The portions were good and we had to take some to go. When I come back to Memphis, I'll make sure I stop in again.
