We were staying in Memphis but made the drive here based on recommendations. Good food, GREAT service. Not a long line or anything.

Our server was excellent. Was speedy and attentive which is nice when you have 3 young kids. The food was amazing and not overpriced like some other barbecue chains. Brisket sandwich was so tasty and the spicy sauce was just the kick it needed. The food was so good that one of our kids ordered Mac and Cheese. I wish... More

Always great food. Always wonderful service. If it's on the menu it's good. If you are actually not in the mood for barbecue, try their Memphis Dip. It is a shame that their bar and smoking sections are not outside. The cigarette smoke is my only negative experience.

Ribs are fall off the bone tender, Cole slaw delicious. Shrimp appetizer very good but a little salty for my taste. Husband lived them. Bone in wings very good. Device was top notch an overall great place for great barbecue. It's a bit noisy and always busy, but not bad. We were quoted 15-20 minutes but were seated in 10... More

Two of us sampled baby back ribs in and around Memphis on a recent day visit to the area. The slab we ate at the Memphis BBQ Company was good. It had a nice finish to it with good flavor; but it lacked real character.. It was almost more like a big piece of pork loin with bones; and surprisingly... More

Great food, excellent service, good price!! Try the homemade pork skins and sausage and cheese plate before you bite into the best ribs in the Memphis area.

We were passing through the area from Stillwater Ok to Baton Rouge, LA. I planned our sleeping around dinner at the Memphis BBQ. Short wait. Restaurant very clean. Great server. She really tried to help us get what we wanted at the best value. We had 5 in the group. Everyone was very tried and cranky. The brisket was wonderful.... More

I have had the pleasure of judging the Memphis in May World Championship Contest and I had been told that I need to try Memphis Barbecue Co. for a couple of years and I was just never in the area to try it. I will now go there time and time again. I had fried green tomatoes and they were... More

If you haven't had the opportunity to try Memphis Barbeque Company, you need to try it. They serve complimentary pork rinds to start you meal. We also tried their award winning Cheese Balls, very good. The first night I had sliced brisket and pulled chicken, fantastic. The second night it was ribs, brisket and chicken platter. Wished I had only... More

Place was busy on arrival. I have read reviews and expected it to be busy, and it wasn't as busy as I expected. We got seated in about 5 to 10 minutes. Staff was freindly and prompt. I ordered some form of BBQ chicken and it was pretty good. I can't say it was the best BBQ ever, but well... More
