“Waitress needs to go to rehab”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2011

A business associate and I from the UK visited Old Style mainly because it was located next to our hotel. We were told the non-smoking section was in the front and the smoking section was in the back of the same side of the restaurant. We sat in smoking because that's where most people were seated and it seemed rather abandoned in the front. Our waitress, Shelley, was obviously under the influence of drugs - she was dropping items, talking to herself, speaking very loudly, yelling things to customers from across the room, licking her lips, grinding her teeth and basically tweeking hard. It took her a while to get us our menus and drinks, and when she came to take our order she kneeled down on the floor, put both arms and elbows on our table and flopped her hair on the table. She made stupid comments about our orders and generally acted like she was out of her mind. She also served food WHILE ACTUALLY SMOKING A CIGGIE! She simply took it out of her mouth, blew smoke from the corner, and stuck her hand with the cigarette burning away behind her . The food was average, but the whole dining experience was like watching the first 15 minutes of an episode of Intervention. Shelley, honey, get some help.

“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2010

Bad service, very overpriced. The food here is good but the staff is very indifferent and acts like they couldn't care less if you were here or not. Food was cold when we got it and for a BBQ place, especially in the Memphis area, it was way overpriced.

Interesting Combo of fast food service on one side of the restaurant and sit down service on the other. Food is average.
