I went based on the reviews of this being the #1 restaurant in Germantown and also because it was only 2 miles from the hotel. Arrived at 5 p.m. and was seated promptly. Ordered bbq 1/2 chicken and an IPA beer. Beer arrived first, in a can. No mug. Chicken delivered was very dry with absolutely no bbq sauce on... More

I haven't had this kind of bbq before. It was very tasty. The place looked a little small when we walked in. The waitress was friendly and the entire staff was welcoming. The sweet tea is very good - typical southern sweet tea. Portions were very large and the coconut cream pie was AWESOME!!

While traveling through Tennessee, we knew we had to try some Memphis BBQ. Since our hotel was in Germantown, the Commissary was the easy choice.And what a good choice it was! The entrance to the restaurant was jammed when we arrived on a Sunday evening. It wasn't clear who was waiting in line for a table and who was there... More

Loved the food. Tried the pulled pork, ribs,f resh pork rinds ,and the Brunswick stew. Arrived piping hot and delicious. It is a very busy place and small. I would not bring a stroller. The staff is very friendly. Lisa,our waitress,was great! Great place to eat BBQ. The sweet tea is great too!

We were in town for my son's wedding and came a day early to celebrate my husband's birthday and meet out-of-town family. They were visiting from Colorado and wanted an authentic Memphis barbecue experience. Our hotel recommended the Commissary and I will have to say, I was a bit put off at first. Their reservation policy was very strict and... More

My wife and I were leaving Memphis looking for a late breakfast (10am). GC was listed as #1 on TA so we drove over. Knew something was out of sorts as soon as we drove up because there were no cars in the extremely tiny parking lot. Wife went in to see if they were actually open which they were.... More

A BBQ buddy of mine (Bob) ranks this as his #1 pick anywhere. He even shipped me some from here overnight air express one time. I’ve seen it on TV shows about BBQ also; having visited I understand the hype. This was excellent chow. The building is somewhat small and non-descript; great sign of a good joint. I had the...
