It was't mind blowing

I thought this was the place to go for bbq. We ordered the sampler platter. The food was subpar. The bbq spaghetti taste like they just forward to getting sauce and combined it together. I didn't like the taste of the barbecue sauce it tastes like it was store bought. I would not recommend this... read more

Decent food served. Prices are fair. Large seating area. No wait time.Not in the best neighborhood but worth a try. There is a carry-out counter available for when you're on the go. 1 Thumbs Up!!

I was craving some BBQ and remembered Interstate BBQ from a few years back. Even though it was later in the evening the food was still very good and tasty. The portions were large enough for two of us traveling to enjoy it. Service is good and the staff is friendly. Hope to see them again in September when we... More

I've had barbecue ribs, pork, brisket, chicken. But barbecue bologna? Barbecue spaghetti? Apparently Memphis folks will put sauce on just about anything and cook it slow. We stopped at Interstate after visiting Graceland, to fortify ourselves with one last hit of barbecue before heading west. Between out individual orders and the sampler we got to put in the cooler, we... More

Ah, Memphis! Memphis BBQ at it's finest. Home of the Neely's of Food Network fame. I always have the pulled pork BBQ sandwich for lunch and the dry rub ribs for dinner. My partner is a burger man and the burgers here are fresh ground daily, cooked to perfection with great fries and onion rings. Not a dress up place,... More

I stopped in for a sandwich. I enjoyed the large chopped pork sandwich, it was loaded with meat and very tasty. It was so big it could easily make two meals! Sauce and cole slaw were very good. Service was very good. I try to get up here when I come in town for a visit, real good!

Great food, great atmosphere! Friendly service. Food was affordable with very large portions. If you like southern style bbq, you won't be disappointed.

Interstate does BBQ the way it is supposed to be done in Memphis. I had the pulled pork sandwich for lunch and was completely satisfied. If you leave hungry, its your own fault as they give you a large portion of meat and fries, beans. Its a wet BBQ sauce as opposed to the dry rub in other places. The... More

We heard about this place from the Food Network, and my husband couldn't wait to try it. After driving in from 3rd Street through blocks of urban wasteland, I was expecting this place to be worth the sketchy drive. When we arrived there were only 3 other tables were seated in a huge restaurant, although it was around 7:30 on... More

Starving after Graceland tour, our shuttle driver gave us this lead for good bbq, and he was right! We ordered the pulled pork and rib combo with sides of coleslaw and potato salad. The serving was large, and I only wish I could have taken it with me...I would have eaten it for dinner too. I like a saucy rib... More
