The food was good, but nothing special. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would have no problem coming back.

Nothing special, but not bad. The ribs and the dry rub were very good. No sauce provided in my takeout, though. Bread was simply a hamburger bun half. The sides were okay: beans, potato salad, and cold fries.

This is mostly a take out place although they do have some tables. Compared to barbecue we have had in other places in Memphis, this was a disappointment. The pork was tough and hard to chew and the sauce was not particularly to our taste.

Get the burger!! I've have the pleasure of starting a new job around the corner from here and although my taste buds are thrilled, I'm thinking my waistline will disagree. The burger was excellent- service was prompt and clearly this is an area favorite as...More
