“Are you hungry?”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

My son and daughter in law brought us to Commissary one Sunday after church on one of our visits. Well this weekend while here for the birth of their first child....We introduced the rest of the family to this unique delight. The servers were personable and the portions were LARGE. Four of us had BBQ plates and 1 a pulled Smoked Turkey Sandwich meal. Every meal is served with a deviled egg and the slaw with a banana pepper. Beans and stew were both great but they are known for their POTATO SALAD....try some. it is so good that we took a plate back to the hospital for the new mom and dad. Sweet iced tea is a southern "must have" --and coming in a black plastic cup you now have a to go cup to take home! Our family will return to Georgia with theirs...We were 2 blocks from the Methodist Hospital in Germantown--so it was perfect! You cannot go wrong...It's unique look is awesome and the servers were absolutely the best.....they were interested in where we were from and out new granddaughter!

“An Affordable Option for Good Barbecue”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I was introduced to the Commissary when a relative suggested it for lunch one afternoon. Arriving at the restaurant, I was unsure what to expect. Located in the Germantown suburb of Memphis, the small restaurant is consistently crowded. The menu, while not extensive, is varied, with everything from traditional pork sandwiches to southern-style desserts. The staff is attentive and the prices are affordable. I would certainly recommend the Commissary to anyone looking for fast, affordable barbecue in Memphis.

“Best BBQ in memphis”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Hands down best BBQ from Memphis to st Louis. Atmosphere feels like real BBQ joint. The best pulled pork sandwich by far. If u like dessert get the banana pudding the only downside is you will have to tell your mom now hers is not your favorite anymore.

“Good Pig”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Ate at the Commissary in Germantown recently and found it to have some of the best pig I ever eaten. Moist, good smoke coloring and a wonderful spicy sauce. In a part of the country known for its barbecue I found that the Commissary stood out as one of the best.The atmosphere of the building is pretty unique as well. I can recommend this establishment without reservation.

“Best ribs by far”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

When it comes to Memphis ribs, everyone has a personal favorite ... Gtown Commisary is mine. They're consistently tender and flavorful. One measure of a good rib is how the meat comes off of the bone. These always come clean. Try a slab of ribs and you won't be disappointed.
