Love this place, my son got me into going here when his family and I visited Memphis this August. It is his favorite place to go in Memphis for BBQ. There were 6 of us and we all had different items. I had the sliced pork sandwich w/slaw and fries, my son had the pork ribs and a double order... More

My husband and I stopped here for a quick lunch today. We ordered a large barbecue sandwich. The pork was perfectly smoked and lightly sauced. The addition of coleslaw on the sandwich was the perfect complement.

Interstate BBQ is a classic in Memphis. The Q is good Memphis style Q, and the sauce is typical. I love the tips and at $10 a large plate a finger eating plate full. The sides are good. And if you are like me - you will need lots of napkins. Now lets compare to other BBQ in Memphis. Rendezvous... More

Astonishingly, this place actually has a major reputation. I thought it was the Neely's of the Food Network, so I expected high quality, high end BBQ. Not that I formed an opinion of that from what I saw on TV, but at least good cooks and recipes. There was no smoke rings around the meat, so it could not have... More

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 place unless you just want... 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
