“Good for Barbecue....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

This place surpasses many of the more "talked about" barbecue places in the area. They have a spicy vinegar based sauce that tastes excellent. Nice and friendly staff as well.

“Good basic bbq”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Captain John's doesn't have any ambiance, but it does have good BBQ. It is not the best in the area, but ALL Memphis BBQ is wonderful. Here you get good sized portions at a reasonable price. The staff is very friendly. You order and then pick up your food, so there is a fast food atmosphere, but it is good fast food! I have never had anything but pulled pork, but that is good. Sometimes you can get coupons which make it even more reasonable in price. Give it a try.

“Great barbecue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Eating inside is not great, but they have a very convenient drive up window. Ribs and barbecue sandwiches are excellent.
