This place has amazing barbecue! I go here every time I am in town. This time I had it to-go for a big family lunch. Without prior ordering we were able to get in and out with enough food for 12 people in about 5 minutes. Eat here!

They don't expect you to finish this $9 salad. They serve it in a takeout container and you have to eat half of it to close the top! I would skip the Brunswick Stew.

This place is worth the wait. Excellent BBQ ribs and chicken. The service is friendly and efficient. Not a luxurious atmosphere, but want you would expect at a BBQ place.

My family and I have eaten here for many years. The food is always super and the service is right on. Can be a little wait during peak times, but well worth it. My wife and I judge BBQ contest and when people ask about best BBQ in this area, I never hesitate to tell them the Commissary.

BBQ Nachos are the best! But if you must have a salad... make it the Boss Man Salad! The place is small and the wait can be a bit long during rush hours but its OK because the food is worth it! This is a true local favorite for good Memphis style BBQ. Not overrun by tourists like some others.

We read and heard a great deal about The Commissary so finally we try it and so glad we did. We had the rib dinner for two and the meal was outstanding. Ribs had a great smoke flavor plus very tender and the sides were all very tasty. My wife is a tamale lover so on the recommendation of our... More

We ate here twice during our stay with a group of six each time. Our wait times were reasonable and the decor inside made you feel like you were eating in the deep south. The food was very good and the portions were ample. The staff was attentive and helpful. Prices were reasonable. A definite stop if I return to... More

Took out of town guest and we all ordered the pulled pork. The portions were plentiful but not very smoky tasting or favorable. I found myself drenching it in BBQ sauce to get some flavor. The stuffed eggs aren't good, they taste pre-made, the cold slaw is good but not memorable. On this particular day the best thing was the... More

Germantown Commissary is our family's go-to place for quick, delicious, take-home spread for a few or for many. Been a customer for over 30 years. We just hosted an impromptu football-watch party recently. Took only about 45 minutes round-trip from Collierville to the Commissary for everything I needed to feed 6. This is a no-brainer selection when a quick party... More
