No very good, kind of generic. Bbq was dry like it came out of a microwave. Coleslaw was pretty good.

the brisket and pulled pork are very good. The smoked chicken is also very tastey. I like their potatoe salad, but the baked beans are just OK. BBQ sauces are also very good.

Traveling we decided to have lunch in Tupelo. We didn't know what we wanted but we were thinking "barbeque!". We decided to try to Eli's. Each of us ordered a barbeque sandwich and some sides.

What is a BBQ sundae? First thing you think of is Ewwwww... Oh no.... This think is just AWESOME. Layers of pulled pork, beans and slaw... Once you try one... you'll be hooked.

The sauce provided is tasty, but not nearly enough for the amount of meat that was purchased. I did not, however, care for Eli's coleslaw. It is yellow in color and I presume it... More
