Great food and great service! I've ate here several times and they never disappoint me! The Lemon pie is the best I've ever had. I usually eat so much that I have to order it to go! 😀

Good pork shoulder but ribs were DRY. I think they were in hot box too long. I wouldn't recommend ribs. Maybe just bad that day. Get the pulled shoulder. It's very moist and just the right amount if smoke. and Try all the sauces thought they are very good. Service was superb and beer is cold. A place to try... More

First time in Memphis. Had to make sure I had Memphis BBQ and friends brought us here. We had a bit of a wait as it was lunchtime and the place was packed. As we were waiting in a packed waiting room (it is small) we were already drooling at the offerings on the menu and also seeing the dessert... More

This is our second time eating here while passing through Memphis. We first stumbled in here several years ago and have never forgotten how good the ribs were so we sought it out again this trip. They are just as good as I remember!! This time we visited on a Sunday evening, not long before closing (but still a short... More

Memphis and suburbs have a lot of barbecue restaurants. This by far is my favorite. Barbecue great, tamales yummy, smoked turkey salad delicious and very large. But the coconut pie alone is worth the trip. Large slices and very rich. They are also known for their banana pudding. Try it, you'll be glad you did...well, except for the calories!

s stated above, one of the best Bar B Q sandwich's in Memphis area, Ribs are above average. Prices are in line, service good considering how many good there. I have been going to the Germantown Commissary 30 years Ribs are above average.

Travel Buddy and I worked up an appetite at Graceland, and luckily we were with locals to guide us to the good bar b que. At 1:30 on a work day, this place was still mostly full, and I'm going to share the secret as to why... The food is perfect! I had the two meat plate, Buddy the half... More
