Great BBQ and a fun causal dining experience. If you go at peak times of lunch or dinner, you will wait for an hour for a seat, but it's worth it. Also a great place to get BBQ turkey and catering items for large parties.
My favorite BBQ spot! Definitely a local spot with limited seating. Line can be quite long but worth the wait!

This place is an eating experience; the crowded, rustic atmostphere's probably part of what contributes to the attraction. There have been 4 to 6 of us each visit and we have tried about everything and liked it all. My favorite is the pig fries--french fried sweet potatoes. My 30-something daughter's favorite is bar-b-que nachos of all things! The food is worth returning for. We ask to go here every time we visit our daughter and son-in-law since they took us there after their move to Memphis. The wait staff can be brusk, rude (?) as in don't say you don't want anything on your sandwich then ask for mustard or ketchup. No condiments are kept on the table and causes at least one waitress great consternation when you ask for them after your order comes.

After all of the great things I heard about this place, I have to say I was a bit let down. As a Memphis native, I am very particular to BBQ especially IN the Memphis area. I had the 2 meat plate which came with a small slab of ribs and chopped BBQ. The ribs were not bad, but nothing to write home about either. The Chopped BBQ was mushy and rather tasteless. The service was quite rude and seemed bothered by any sort of request. The place is rather small - so when it begins to get busy, one begins to feel crammed in and pressured to hurry out. This place is wayyyy over-hyped! If you are visiting Memphis, avoid this place. Try Interstate BBQ, Payne's, or even Central BBQ. That is the real Memphis deal! And they are NICE people!

Food here is great..no doubt. The smell when you walk in is wonderful and the place stays crowded. Crowds can be a negative thing, but not in a restaurant...they are doing something right if they keep the seats filled. My 5 year old loves going to eat there, so does my husband and so do I. We all win! There is something on the menu for everyone and you should go just for the experience if nothing else. The place feels like history must have happened there and the guests that frequent the place are all nice people. The Boss Man salad is wonderful, the sauce is great and the banana pudding is simply marvelous!
The only area of concern in this place is the inconsistent service we get. I saw another review about some of the wait staff being intimidating...I would have to agree. Even so, the ladies at the front counter are always gracious and courteous. Besides, there are always a few bad apples in the bunch.
