We live in the area and had never been to this restaurant. We went with friends who like it. Onion rings were good; turkey tender and moist but not much flavor; pulled pork was just OK; did not like the taste of the sauce at all; sides were basic and nothing special. Best thing was the coconut crème pie which was rich, thick and creamy. Service was good, but when we were there last weekend it was not crowded. This is a Bar-b-que chain. There are a lot better local places in Memphis that are not chains where the bar-b-que pork, turkey and sides are much better, and prices are more reasonable. Once was enough. Won't be going back.

Forget about all the "chain" BBQ places in Memphis. The natives say go to Jim N' Nick's. We had a large carry-out order, and it was delicious! Try the "Potato with Pig"...super large baked potato with lots of BBQ pork.

I ordered ribs. He got pulled chicken, pork and brisket combo. Food quality was good. I loved the BBQ sauce but he didn't like it. Since it's a matter of taste, no points off. But still, it was solid average eats.
They have a gluten free menu with decent choices. Add a point or two for that.

Relatives suggested that we try this place and it was very good. One had the steak which looked good and three of us had the Stuffed Baked Potato topped with pulled pork and all the fixin's. It was a meal in itself. I couldn't even finish it so my husband gladly did. Atmosphere and service were good. For the two of us it was just over $31.00 plus tip.

I'm a foodie and do a lot of grilling / smoking at home. Great baby backs, well smoked and great sauce.
