Stopped here on my way back to Nashville. I got the brisket sandwich and it was good. The meat was a little dry and could have used more bbq sauce but overall it satisfied my craving for good Memphis BBQ.

We went for lunch, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We ordered a cheeseburger for the little one, a rib sandwich for the wife and I got the mixed platter. The cheeseburger was actually very delicious, the rib sandwich was pretty good and the...More

I judge bbq by where it's from, not against other styles. I had not had Memphis style before and did not have time to hit the classic joints, though Tops claims it is the best. I got my order fairly fast. I ordered the pork...More

We stopped because they were so close to our hotel and they have a pretty good TripAdvisor rating. The food was good enough, my pulled pork sandwich was cold though. The service was something else all together. No eye contact when ordering, we were missing...More

Went through the drive through... My order was repeated back correctly. And entered correctly. But they put a BBQ sandwich in the bag instead of the cheeseburger I ordered. I suspect this is because it was the lunch rush and their burgers take ages to...More

This is essentially a fast food version of BBQ. The brisket sandwich was very good, as were the side of beans and potato salad. Presentation wise, your getting your food wrapped in paper or in small plastic containers. I've eaten at several restaurants the specialize...More
