Handled 80 people on two buses quite well. Food was excellent staff was average location was unexpected. We found two hours in advance and they handled us well placed in the back room large enough to Hold all of us. Fast food turnaround with good tasting food.

This was my second visit. I tried hard to like the food both times, but was disappointed. This place had a great reputation; but now, not so much. Although BBQ is a matter of taste and opinion, I did not find the food worth the trip or cost. I ordered the huge sampler platter so I could taste a broad selection of their best. Most all of the food arrived heavily sauced; it tasted the same. The pork ribs were about the best, beef ribs lacked meat, chopped pork lacked flavor, beef brisket indistinguishable, sides unremarkable. Memphis has much better.

Did not like the California sausage, too dry. Recently enlarged. There is better BBQ in the Memphis area. The restaurant is clean and service was good, but taste buds rule the roost when it comes to BBQ.

Interstate has the best BBQ sandwich in Memphis, or anywhere for that matter. It's the one to which all others are compared, and so far all fall short. Sauce is tangy and delicious. The neighborhood is not the safest, so go during the day or drive thru, but don't miss it!

The chopped pork and brisket were as good as it gets! Service was very good and we plan on having food shipped to us when we return home. We believe them when they say they are the best. We went to Rendezvous for dinner, after lunch at Interstate, and there was no comparison. Interstate won hands down!
