“What A Nice Surprise!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

I was skeptical at first...not knowing what to expect, given it's strip mall location in Northern Westchester County. We were most definitely not disappointed! What a pleasant surprise! Decor was nice, and not at all kitschy; no smoky smell. Service was friendly, welcoming, and attentive. Very satisfying food: deliciously smoked meats; wonderful appetizers; very pleasing sides - especially the addictive fried okra! I enjoyed it all so much that I went back a few days later with other family members. It was even better, if possible! I especially loved the Hog Wings. We also enjoyed the Catfish Fingers, BBQ Grilled Shrimp, and Hush Puppies - which were very satisfying, and not at all heavy. Also real standouts for us: the ribs (wet or dry); and pulled pork.

“Good depends on the day”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

This place can be either great or poor. I guess depends when you go and when the food was cooked. It is hit or miss. You either get some of the best bbq in the area or it is dry and disappointing. It is definitely overpriced, especially for Croton.

“Bar-B-Que in Croton”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

As good as down South. The ribs, wet or dry, the bar-b-que chicken and the brisket, yummy. The pulled pork's real good too.

“BBQ Flavor Not What It Used To Be”
Reviewed May 14, 2012 via mobile

We have have greatly enjoyed Memphis Mae's in the past but had not been there for perhaps one year. We stopped by at a prime time (7:30PM on a nice Saturday night and were quite surprised that the restaurant was less than half full. That should have been a clue! The service was at friendly and efficient as ever but the food was tasteless! The brisket was lean but bland and covered with a cloyingly sweet sauce. The BBQ chicken was dry underneath the deep fied skin. Even the Mac and cheese was totally devoid of flavor. What happened to Memphis Mae's??? New chef? We won't be going back, sorry to say as we used to love this place!

“Good old fashioned BBQ in Croton”
Reviewed February 15, 2012

This place is small and in a little strip mall, but don't let that stop you from trying it. Really good BBQ, good service and reasonable prices. The cornbread and sides are sooooo good. If you like BBq, you should try this place. Sometimes tough to get a table so call first.
