We weren't planning on stopping in Memphis on our way to New Orleans but we had time and a little guy that wanted to so we did. Graceland was OK but finding this hole in the wall BBQ was worth the stop. The smell as we pulled up was great and workers were nice and welcoming. The food was classic... More

This place has the best ribs tips and turkey legs. The gentleman that waited on at counter was very pleasant. I will return on next trip Memphis to eat there.

We found Big Bills after touring Graceland. This is a small local place with great food as we try to stay away from franchise places. The pulled pork melted in our mouths and the sides were great also. The place is small but the food large. If your not sure about this place do yourself a favor and smell the... More

Stopped for Memphis BBQ on a cross country trip based on TA reviews. When we walked in, a perfume of wood smoke deliciously lingered in the restaurant. We were greeted by the young man behind the counter and pulled some menus to decide what we wanted. My daughter ordered the turkey burger and said it had good flavor and was... More

Overall, pretty good BBQ...and just down the road from Graceland. We had the pulled pork sandwich and they were very good. The pork was a little dry (probably re-heated), but still good. The sides were good, with the best thing being the BBQ spaghetti--it was delicious!! I'd recommend this as a lunch spot...and would likely return in the future.
