If your looking for a terrific hole-in-the-wall BBQ place with excellent food and service this is it! We've been here several times with great experiences every time. There just isn't anything I wouldn't recommend. Pig out!

The waiting area is smaller than a telephone booth, but people don't mind. The food is uniformly very good and the pies are excellent. Do not go to the Commissary for a quiet meal...this is a rocking good local place for classic southern BBQ.

Everything they have is fantastic. It can be very busy at lunch and dinner times! Small eat in area. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Small parking area but the church across the street allows parking there. Also there is a train track nearby which would definately get your attention if you were unaware.

When I need a break from the ordinary, I go to the Commissary. The laid back rustic setting is relaxing. The service and food is very good.

This was a very small joint but trust me it was fabulous! The aroma upon entering the restaurant was amazing. The only thing I wished they had was a bar.

The Commisary is a Germantown tradition. Great food, great service, reasonable prices. Only downside is parking. Very limited parking close. You can usually find a spot across the street and walk over. It's worth it!

One of the best BBQ ribs, pulled pork, beans abd cole slaw I have had. This is a place with tradition and expertise doing what they do. It is visited byblocals and foreigners. If you love desserts, dont forget the Lime pie and banana puding

When there is a line out of the door, you know you're in for a treat. Excellent BBQ, great sides (loved the coleslaw), yummy banana pudding, and friendly helpful staff.

Thank Gozzies
