I'm in Memphis about twice a year and I try new places each time. I heard a lot about this place! The rib tips were tender and that was almost all I needed to know! I loved the sauce and the potatoe salad taste like Grandma's. I have no complaints!

My meats were dry & over cooked, pork ribs were very good but the addition of red bbq all over everything ruined all chances of enjoying the meat, which was unfortunately quickly and poorly cooked. Side's were decent, spaghetti was overcooked and burnt. Coleslaw was over peppered but the rest was ok. Will have to check out the others.

We are so happy we tried Neeley's during our Memphis BBQ vacation. I ordered the smoked turkey and my husband ordered the combo with the turkey and beef ribs. He rated the ribs a 9.5, which is AWESOME. I tried some of the ribs and can understand why he felt that rated that high on his scale :). The beans... More

On several trips to Memphis in years before GPS, I'd been unsuccessful in finding this restaurant. But with a GPS i was able to find it fast and have lunch before driving over to Little Rock. Excellent pulled pork sandwich with cole slaw on the sandwich as it should be. And a side of baked beans with shredded pork in... More

On a recent trip thru Tennessee we stopped here for some of that memphis bbq. They give you a ton of food so bring a healthy appetite. The bbq was good better than your average place. It wasn't mind blowing but good old fashion bbq.

A short drive from the main Memphis attractions, but the quality is great and the portions are large. A much better experience then the more tourist oriented joints down town. Get the sampler and share it.. it goes a long way.

The BBQ at interstate was delicious. So good that we had it for lunch and dinner in the same day. Also got a bottle of their hot sauce to take home. If you're in Memphis I highly recommend you try it. And remember, get the Pork, not Chicken.

Saw this on the Travel Channel, had to go and well worth the trip. We got the $20 meal for two and it was out of this world. 2 kinds of ribs, sausage, pulled pork, coleslaw, baked beans, bbq spaghetti. Delicious meal in an unpretentious setting

Spent the night in Memphis and wanted BBQ. Went here based on recommendation of friends. We were not disappointed. Food was very good for what we ordered. Service for us was prompt, attentive, and polite. We had no issues with service. This is not a 5 star dining place and the building has seen some wear, but we were there... More

We love BBQ and believed the TV hype. Skip this place and go to Rendezvous. Service here was terrible. Our ice tea was sour; coleslaw was yellow, old and bitter.BBQ ends were covered with a ketchup based sauce.Might have been a great place 20 years ago: not now. Only positive thing was the low prices.
