Book a table as can get busy. Good service with a good selection on the menu. Not for vegetarians by any stretch. Delicious BBQ food at a decent price. Would definitely recommend.More

Had the brisket and rib combo. Both were good, especially the tender brisket. Would definitely return. The ice cold lemonade or sweet tea would be good on a hot day (cold and rainy today).More

We've visited this cool restaurant downtown several times. Great place to eat then walk the boardwalk along the lake. The food portions are huge. Delicious. If you're into BBQ this is the place for you. Outdoor patio tables are wonderful on a summer evening.

...and is absolutely nothing like good southern BBQ. I lived in the Tennessee area and lived on BBQ. Food was luke warm and the meat had that reheated taste. Good fries but nothing to bring us back. Service, meh...nothing praise worthy .

Response from MemphisBBQKelowna | Property representative |
Thank you for your question. We do not use nuts other than walnuts on site - no peanuts whatsoever. However, we do use bread from a bakery that is NOT nut-free and cannot guarantee that there will not be traces of peanuts... More

Do you allow dogs on the outdoor patio?

Answer
Response from MemphisBBQKelowna | Property representative |
Interior Health regulations do not allow dogs on patios. Despite this, we can sometimes accommodate if no one else is out there! Best to call us directly to inquire.
