It was suggested that I head to Germantown Commissary. Great atmosphere. Super service and BBQ was phenomenal. Too bad I didn't have room for dessert. The ribs, pork shoulder, Cole slaw, baked beans, and a deviled egg. Done to perfection.

I got exactly what I wanted and was looking for. This place was awesome experience and a great atmosphere. It was also extremely busy, but did not make it unpleasant. Will definitely comeback one more night before I leave town.

We were in town for a soccer tournament and wanted to try some Memphis BBQ, being from STL it's always a competition. We did take out and really enjoyed our pulled pork sandwiches. highly recommend take out since the line for a table is always long.

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.
