This place has been on my radar for a while, I finally had the time to check it out and I was not disappointed. When I walked in I was greeted by friendly hosts and promptly seated, my server came by shortly and took my drink order. His name was Curtis, he was friendly, well dressed, professional, and knowledgeable of the menu. I ordered a sweet tea and when he brought it he brought two! Very nice (I'm a thirsty guy) I ordered the jumbo BBQ sandwich plate(don't judge me I skipped breakfast) which came with a cup of BBQ beans, potato wedge fries, and last but not least The Big Leonard BBQ sandwich.The food came to my table piping hot and everything tasted freshly made, starting with the beans they were amazing! It had pulled pork in it and had a good flavor, it reminded me of homemade baked beans my grandma would make.The potato wedge fries are what you would expect, lightly seasoned, crispy, and big. Try dipping them in the beans, you won't regret it.I was given the choice of coleslaw on the sandwich or on the side, I chose on the side so I could taste it on its own and it was good and again it reminded me of homemade food. It reminded me of yellow mustard potato salad which is different but I liked it.And last but not least The Big Leonard! It lives up to it name, most other BBQ joints that serve a large sandwich just pile the meat on higher than the regular. The Big Leonard is very wide, it uses a large bun to evenly spread out all the meat. So that way you still get a lot of meat but its not so tall it might fall over or they have to use use a burger pick.Now on to the meat and BBQ sauce, the meat had a good flavor and was well smoked but not to the point of being dried out. The sauce was very interesting and different from any other sauce I've tasted at other places. It had a distinct tang to it followed by a rush of spices with a touch of sweetness, not bad.The only negative I can think of is its not open long enough, I'd love to take my friends or family here for dinner, that's usually when their available.This place is a true hole in the wall, dive, BBQ joint! Cozy atmosphere, good service, and great food that won't have you leaving hungry. Highly recommended
The food & service was excellent. However, we were all four very upset when we got the bill. First, the correct change was not rrturrnd. Then we were told that if the bill was less than 50¢. My bill was $15.27, I gave her $20.00, she gave me back $4.00. She rounded my bill off to $16.00. My friends with me received the same rounding off of there bill. No where in your establishment is this procedure posted. This is theft. We travel & eat out a lot. This is the first time we were ever treated like this. Her explanation was she only earned $2.13 per hour, she then offer me back my chsnge. "I don't have enough time to make change to everyone" was her last words.
Came here tonight with my boyfriend. The hotel we are staying at offered a deal with a free limo ride and 10% off. Thought this would be a nice place to eat but the place was so loud and the booth behind us was screaming and yelling and pounding the table. Nobody cared. It was obvious we were not having fun. Now for the food. Brisket, and pulled pork was awesome. But the ribs were horrible. Very grisly. Didn't care for them at all.
This is place is great for it's food and the founder. The full rack is the altenative example of a typical all you can eat feature in restaurants. Rendevous and Corkys better run for their money because they got some competition. This place would be perfect if someone could remove those annoying little naggers called waitresses.
This place has some of the most wicked seasoned bbq you'll ever eat. I hate it's closed on Sunday and Monday. I devoured everything like a mad pig. People gave this place bad reviews because they don't have taste buds. Beware of that Rendevous serves spicy hot soul food that will make you come back for more!
We almost NEVER visit Memphis without bringing home some BBQ pork from 3-Pigs. The meat is just the best - no mystery pieces. The sauce is good but not as outstanding for my tastes, so often use my own sauce. Also a very friendly, clean, nice place to go to.
WOW - This place is great! They have some of the best bbq I've ever had. The owners are great people and great cooks. The portions are amazing and you can't help but be hungry when you walk in and smell the food. Best of luck to them, they deserve it!!!!!!!!!!!!
Leonards is by far the best bbq I have ever eaten. I was born in Memphis in 1953 and have eaten there all my life. I will always recommend it to anyone. My husband says their spaghetti and catfish is the best he has ever had, and the buffet is delicious.
This was our first trip to Fat Larry's...but it won't be the last. We ordered the slab for 2...plenty of food, even brought leftovers home. The ribs just fall off the bone! We plan on trying the catfish on our next trip! You won't be disappointed!
Service is fair at the best, but the menu options are plentiful. Wings are great and prices are good. Restraunt is clean and drink machines offer a lot as well.Wish they were just more friendly....like at World Of Wings on Winchester!!
