Very Satisfied

I enjoy good food and am not too overly critical like some other reviews. I am straight forward, it is good or not good. This time I thought the food was good and I was satisfied. I do not place myself in the this bbq style is better than the other, etc. I was just looking for a decent meal,... read more

We have seen this place highlighted on the Travel Channel and read about it in the book 1000 Places to See Before You Die. So this was a much anticipated stop while we were in Memphis for a short visit. Memphis is world renowned for their barbecue. This is one of the places that has found favor with those people...

I'm from Memphis, TN and decided to have a nice lunch with friends at Interstate BBQ. I have been here before with great food and service. I was amazed by the bad service we received. We were a party of 5 with a restaurant half full. We sat for 25 mins before we had someone take our drink order. Food... More

I love all ribs done well, but there is a special place in my heart for Beef Ribs and this rib joint at the Tennessee / Mississippi state line fills the Billy. As was said in the movie " The Alamo" when the Texicans managed to score several head of cattle, "pigs is fine, but ya cain't beat MEAT." Great... More

the airport doesn't lend itself to greatness for barbeque since the health dept. probably wont let them use a smoker. but neither the sides, the dessert or even the tea were really what I was hoping for given the iconic status of this restaurant. no crowd; service was excellent

My third time here, always good food, and good service. This last time, the server thought the cook shorted my friend on the fries, so she went back and brought some more. None of us would have known if he was shorted. Good old fashioned service, and doing the wright thing.

We had time before our flight out of Memphis this afternoon- service was fast and courteous and the food was delicious. I ordered the small pork lunch combo and it was just enough to eat and hold me over my 2 and half hour flight. Definitely would go back next time in Memphis.

My husband suggested we stop here on our way to the airport since we had seen it featured on The Travel Channel. (And on previous trips to Memphis we did all the Beale Street options.) We arrived at noon Sunday post Thanksgiving. The lot was pretty full but still lots of spaces left. We were met at the door immediately,... More

We went to Neely's with a large group. The service was great, but the food wasn't. All the meats were cooked properly and were tender, but the BBQ sauce was awful. The baked beans were pretty good, but the coleslaw was not worth eating. The barbecue spaghetti was mushy and gross. No one in our group who ordered it ate... More
