This is the original location. We've eaten at other locations and they are much better. The seating area here is crowded. The counter to order at is small. The meat was tough and salty. We'll eat at Earl's again - just not at this location.

Whether you want ribs (st louis or babyback), brisket, sausage or chicken, all done in the BBQ style, this is the place. Can't go wrong with the sides of Fried Okra or Devilled Eggs. And the price isn't bad either

I must say, i tried and loved the pulled pork and ribs. Not too much fat and enjoyable. Would come again.

I love BBQ and have enjoyed it all over the US. These ribs are some of the best I've had. Great rub complimented by a nice smoky flavor. The sides were also delightful. Ordered the rib dinner, okra, and coleslaw. Great local chain!

Good pulled pork sandwich. Have been going to Earl's at different locations for years. I'm thinking the one on Memorial is better. Cleaner and more room to move around in the entry.

Lots of fun to eat here -- this was either a 'late lunch' or a very early dinner -- about 3 p.m. and we were almost the only people in the place -- unassuming from the outside -but the fragrance caught our attention when we...More
