My visit was ok. Staff was ok. Food was ok. Nothing memorable and nothing calls me to return. Strangely enough the place kept getting fuller and fuller with happy people. Perhaps I had a The Bad Luck of a Bad Draw. Full tables of locals...More

I’ve been going here for the last few years, and this hands down the best BBQ in the county! I might even say it’s the best I’ve ever had! Their food is always fresh and hot and service is always exceptional. I’ve never dealt with...More

Ordered take-out barbecue on a busy evening. Fast, friendly and when they brought my order out the server went over my order with me, took each item out of the bag to make sure everything was right. Delicious food and excellent service!

This place has the worst BBQ. I would not recommend it. The cole slaw is 4/10 and the BBQ is about the same.More

Love the Pompas pig. Great sides and meat but my favorite is the bread. Like the hours they are open but you will miss if not paying attention to the signs.

Wasn't sure about the vanity business name, but well earned. Food was delicious and location closer than going to Memphis. The ribs fell off the bones. We ordered wet and dry. Homemade sweet potatoe casserole could not have been better.

Description
THE BEST BBQ! Smoked Pork, Ribs, Chicken and Beef Brisket. The meats are smoked daily for 8 to 14 hours in our on-site BBQ Pit using a mixture of woods (Hickory, Pecan, White Oak) combined with unique blends of spices and rubs. Our traditional southern side dishes are cooked from scratch in-house each day. Come on by and visit us early 'cause when it's gone, IT'S GONE!
