I had lunch here last week while visiting the Lorraine motel and civil Rights museum. Initially I thought it was going to be just a commercial establishment but the food was really really good. The ribs were excellent, I mean melt-in-your-mouth good. The chicken or turkey was pretty good. The brisket was a little dry but all in all it was good.

This place is great, I got the BBQ plate doubled chopped with fries, they have a gluten free menu posted on website and in restaurant. My mom got the BBQ bologna sandwich it was so good. Everything was hot and fresh they we're very busy but we got in and out pretty quickly.

This location is right across from the Civil Rights Museum. We stopped for lunch and split a 1/2 rack of ribs which was more than enough for two people to share. Their BBQ is so good, it doesn't really need sauce, but they do have 4 different bbq sauces in dispensers by the soda machine. We arrived just after 11:30 AM and just missed the lunch crowd. As we were leaving, the line was out the door.

We visited here after the Civil Rights Museum and the food was fantastic. We looked online for reviews and knew we had to try it whilst in town. It was quite busy inside but definitely worth waiting and getting a table. The BBQ sauce was super tasty and the pulled pork was great. We also tried the mac n' cheese which was delicious. Highly recommend if you're in town! We'll be visiting again for sure.
