Used to be my favorite place but something has happened to the recipe for the BBQ and the bread. Maybe it was not as fresh on the day I went. Needs work.

Gridley's has been around town for many years, and it had been a while since I had visited one of their restaurants. What a nice experience! The "hometown feel" of the restaurant was quaint, and I thought it was cute - lots of old timey signs and humorous posters all around, etc. The ribs were very moist, according to my... More

The service was nice, but the meat was over cooked, dry and very disappointing! The rolls on the other hand were some of the best ever. We'll need to try Gridley's one more time, but it won't be to soon.

Don't go here for the decor or ambience. At one time many years ago Gridley's was the king of BBQ in Memphis. I think this is the only location left in town. The interior was sketchy at best BUT the food was great. I had the beef tips and she had the BBQ. Both were very good and the sides... More

The pickle fries and bread were excellent. I was. Not as impressed by the ribs. Overcooked. The hot sauce was more of a medium to mild, so I would not be afraid to order it.

If you remember how Mr Clyde's beans tasted, they are there along with his onion rings and loafs of buttered goodness. We still long for his seafood gumbo though, maybe one day. Anyway, loved talking with the owner, very pleasant. We loved the po-boy's can't wait to get back and try the shrimp.

Gridleys is one of my usual stops when visiting Memphis. I usually get takeout, but ate in the restaurant with my family this time. The owner was working in the shop and gave us top notch service and great conversation. She was very friendly! We tried the grit sticks for the first time - YUMMY! Never disappointed - enjoyed my...

I am visiting Memphis and wanted to try a place where I could experience the "taste of" Memphis BBQ. This place was suggested and I thought it was a great choice! My entree had a generous portion of BBQ along with slaw and fries. The atmosphere was fun as well as the employees. I will definitely stop back by each... More

Gridley's has been around in Memphis for a number of years and is great barbecue. It may fall a bit lower on a Memphian's best barbecue list, but you gotta remember, we have like 8,000 great BBQ places from which to choose :-) The bbq is excellent, the beans and slaw are good, onion rings are AWESOME, and I love...

I waited over ONE HOUR for 2 BBQ sandwich platters!! They wait on their "REGULARS" ahead of others!! Not worth the wait!
