I was already full but had to try some pulled pork. I was not disappointed wow! So worth it. The location is nice and safe as well and was conveniently located near our hotel across the street.

This place is almost perfect. All menu items hit the spot. Service was right on! So wanted to give 5 stars but couldn't because they don't offer wine. Management, what gives?

I have been somewhat of a barbecue fanatic. I do a lot of smoking ribs, brisket, and pulled pork. That being said, I have to say that Memphis Barbecue is absolutely the BEST barbecue I have ever tasted! Not only do they have the best brisket but the service was outstanding. They were very busy when we arrived yet we... More

Naturally, most folks order shoulder or ribs, but brisket, sausage and other items are available. I ordered the pulled pork. The portion was generous and the meat very tender. My friend ordered a rack... More

The meals are huge and the ribs are about the best there are! The staff is... More

We had a late lunch or early dinner, however you choose to look at it getting there at an off peak time allowed us to be seated right away. Staff was very friendly and the food came out very quickly. I would highly recommend the cheese fritters...they are rich but if you're seriously interested in bbq, watching calorie intake shouldn't... More
