Still had a good taste but the minced was a little dry. Had to use a lot of sauce The portion was more than we could eat. But I think I will go to the pulled next time. The cornbread was good. The tables were all dirty when we arrived and had to ask for the table to be cleaned.... More

Ribs, so tender, so good, worth the trip. The ham is fantastic and the pulled pork is great also. Sweet surprise sauce, give it a try.

Was recommended to eat here by a friend from East Nashville. Very nice pulled pork. The sauce could have had more heat but was ok. Corn bread good. Attentive and helpful staff. Yeah. Pretty good.

Looking for a down to Earth good BBQ house, this is the place for you. Ribs, Chicken, Brisket , and Turkey slow cooked to its finest. While many take out, there is plenty of indoor seating where you can enjoy the ambiance, with the food. Caring staff, quick to offer drink refills.

The last couple of visits to Center Point BBQ have been let downs. With family visiting from out of town, I wanted to treat them to good local BBQ. I bragged about Center Point and ended up being embarrassed. It was as if the restaurant had given up. My pulled pork was so dry, no amount of sauce could revive... More

My husband and I recently stopped by Centerpoint for an early dinner and the food was awful. White beans were not seasoned and cold. The barbecue was dry and difficult to choke down and the cornbread was half done. This has been our favorite barbecue joint for several years but this was a waste of time and money.

My family had a very good dinner here of pulled pork and smoked turkey. The meat was moist with great flavor. Everything is made from scratch and is full of flavor and love...like the mac and cheese, cornbread, coleslaw, baked beans, and potato salad. Nicki was our server and she was terrific, checking on us often with a great attitude... More

This restaurant has its act together. Not only is the place an institution in the fabric of the community, but it shines as an example of good food! The barbecue is wonderful. The sauce is flavorful and tangy. I had a great rib sandwich with potato salad. The meat was very tender and smoked well. The servers were very attentive... More

The pulled pork is awesome. I loved the white beans, Cole slaw, and cornbread. We started with onion straws - yummy sauce!!! Brisket was not cut against the gel rain as I prefer, but will definitely return for the pork, sauce, and sides!

We were told about this bbq place by another restaurant in the area and all I can say is thank you! The fried green tomatoes were awesome and something we can not get at home the yummy sauce was delicious and just a little spicy. My baby back ribs were divine and the tastiest I think I have ever had.... More
