Whats all the hype???

Very laid back atmospher, food was good, but not as I expected from watching the t.v. show, Dinner and Dive. My gamily and I was so excited when we visited Memphis. But in my opinion, Starnes in Paducah KY was better. Interstate BBQ was good, but I would have liked to experience what I saw on the... read more

Tried rib tips and would have them again. Stopped on way to gulf vacation and close to interstate (duh!) nothing pretentious of this place just good BBQ, reasonable prices, and great staff. Take out area was bust the entire time we were there.

Away from Beale St. This has great ribs. The pork ribs were meaty and tasty and fell off the bones. The beef ribs were tasty as well. Great portions that come with beans and so so coleslaw. Service for take out not very effusive. in fact when we went the wrong way from the dining room to take out we... More

Have made several trips to Memphis but Interstate is the one BBQ joint I had not made it (to). My buddy and I arrived about 9 pm during the week and it was not crowded. We were greeted warmly by the lady at the counter and seated in the dining area where so many famous people have visited for Jim... More

We stopped in for an early Dinner on our way home from New Orleans! We are so glad that we did! We each ordered a pulled pork sandwich with fries. Holy cow!!! This sandwich was huge and we had enough fries to feed a small village! So good and well priced. The place is small and nothing fancy, but who... More

On a recent trip through Memphis, we decided to try this BBQ institution. We stopped one Sunday afternoon for lunch. My pulled pork was just average - a filling lunch but nothing to write home about. My husband always tries the ribs. These were pretty bad. Dry. The meat had zero flavor. The fries were under cooked. And the service... More

BBQ is a very personal taste - especially in the South. We went with one Southerner(me), two Iowans and a Californian - highly varied backgrounds for BBQ! We all had the rib dinner with different sides. We all really liked the ribs served with a good slathering of sauce. A red sauce not too sweet or too spicy, very good... More

A small group of us went here on the recommendation of a local co-worker. The place reminded me of a converted Pizza Hut restaurant. Quickly ordering and food also came out fast. I had the large Pork rib dinner (about 5 bones) with a wet sauce. The sauce had a nice spice to it, baked beans and cole slaw were... More
