When I'm in the area, I love to stop by for a BBQ plate. The serving sizes are huge and the BBQ and sides are delicious. The staff has always been very friendly and attentive. The only draw back is the first thing you see when you walk through the door is a messy garbage can. Quite the put off... More

Hello AmeriGirlUSA, Great feedback!! We have a little store that does a lot of business so we may not be able to move the can, but we can do a MUCH BETTER JOB of keeping it and the area neat and clean. We are looking at all solutions! A new trash can that has swinging doors, or relocating the can... More

The place is every bit as good as the famous Rendezvous RIb in Memphis. Staff was awesome! The ribs rocked! The pork sandwich was really good. We will eat here again ! Give it a try! It will not disappoint!.

This hole-in-the-wall BBQ pit doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let its modest exterior fool you. I had the pulled pork BBQ sandwich with slaw and mustard potato salad, and my husband had the brisket sandwich with mac & cheese. I've been eating Memphis BBQ for a long time, and I have to admit this is some... More

Wanted to try some Memphis barbecue and hope they can do better than this! Based on other reviews they must of been someplace else. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich which server said had Cole slaw on it. There was none. Pulled pork tasteless. Her green beans tasted like out of a can. I had the brisket which was... More

New to the Gluten Free thing, we knew a BBQ joint would offer us all kinds of options. Not many parking options, and in the middle of a small strip of shops, we almost drove right by. I'm glad we found this place though. There are only a few tables, and it was a tight squeeze, but the staff were... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant for lunch today. I knew this place must be good since the parking lot was full. As soon as we entered we were greeted my a friendly hostess and then a wonderful waitress. She was extremely friendly and helpful. Our food came very quickly . Everything we ate was hot and delicious.... More

I had the lunch ribs and the twice bake potato salad. The ribs were very good but the show stopper for me was the habanero barbecue sauce. It was amazing! The twice baked potato salad was awesome too. Highly recommended by my amazing waitress Lucy! What a great personality and full of recommendations!

We read a review on TripAdvisor regarding One and Only BBQ and we were very happy with the taste and pricing of our meal. The sauce I used was sweet and spicy and was perfect on the garbage plate. As recommended in the review I read I tried the banana pudding and it took me back to what my Mom... More
