Walked in at 8pm. Hostess acted as though we almost arrived too late to dine in but we sat anyway. Tried to order a beer from the bar and it was already closed despite the fact that the restaurant doesn’t close until 8:30PM which is...super early compared to most restaurants. Didn’t care to the floor being swept beside us as we ate our dinner hurriedly. Food was good, just shouldn’t have gone at 8pm; 30 min before closing time.More

This place is the real deal. My wife and friend and his wife were on an outing when we decided to get something to eat. We decided to give them a try. I had the spare ribs, my wife had the pulled pork and my...friends had the baby back ribs. There were no complaints. The staff was on point. I live an hour away and it was worth the trip and I will return.More

Ordered to pickup while staying nearby. Food was ready upon arrival but from time on ticker sat there for 15 minutes before the given time. Got the food back to the hotel and the order was incomplete - missing wings, missing fries and wrong sauce....Called the restaurant and was directed to the Manager. He said they ran out of wings just as we ordered but then why was the order and charge not adjusted? He did make it right by delivering the missing food (wings now ready) to the hotel and increased the size of the wing order. The food was average BBQ and not the best in Memphis. It was unfortunate after a long day of driving the restaurant could not fill and order properly or communicate when they had a problem.More

Some might look at you sideways when you order (because it’s not Memphis style), but their Carolina pork is great here! Friendly staff, food service, and neat atmosphere

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor coupled with other online reviews of Memphis BBQ along I-40 as we drove from Nashville to Dallas. First of all, the Trip Advisor menu prices are wrong. By A LOT. Brisket plates aren't $13.99 as advertised. They're $17.99....We called in out to go order, and had no idea until we picked up our food. And multiply that by 3 meals, and we paid quite a bit more than we expected. Restaurant didn't care. You'd think if they care about Trip Advisor reviews & potential business, they'd check that when they increase prices. Guess not. And Trip Advisor lists 3b different kinds of salad that apparently aren't offered anymore. We ordered 2 different ones & asked for small side salads. We got entree size & were charged way more than a side salad price. Onto the brisket. We ordered 1 "lean with bark" and 1 regular. They both came out with so much fat. By the time I trimmed it off, the pile of fat was as large as the pile of meat. Not impressed. Very disappointed. And for $65! Keep driving. Not worth the stop.More

I'm a ribs kind of guy so when we stopped in I just had to try both the pork and baby back ribs. The baby back were excellent - just the right balance of crispiness and fall-off-the-bone tenderness. The 'regular' pork ribs mere merely great...:^) BTW - their onion rings are really good also. The service was excellent, the times between arriving, ordering, and receiving our orders was quite reasonable.More

Area chain dining similar to Chili's but better in our opinion. They operate in the larger Tennessee markets. Ribs and burger are satisfying.

Their BBQ sauce wasn't my favorite. The taste was kind of flat. Ribs were not very tender. The onion rings were amazing and the service was great. Overall just average BBQ.

My family loves this restaurant for barbecue. There ceddar muffins are to die for. The barbecue is always awesome. My daughter loves the mac and cheese. We love the double decker sandwich.
