We have been going to Brad's BBQ since we moved to Bartlett 25 years ago. Now that the girls are grown they travel 30 min each, just to get some Brad's BBQ. The Best in Memphis. Y'ALL COME!!!

Brad's Bar-B-Cue is a what the South is all about; Good food, friendly staff, clean, cozy atmosphere and just as charming as a preacher on Sunday morning. Pricing is reasonable and portions are generous. I've eaten there many times and will continue to do so. Go see for yourself.

Family atmosphere, great food and prices. Love the half and half BBQ and spaghetti plate, but the ribs are to die for. Excellent beans and slaw. Good tea, great onion rings. Look no farther for BBQ.

Brad's has the typical BarBQ fare, not being originally from Memphis, I don't have the differentiating taste buds true Memphians are born with- I dont think I have ever had BAD barbecue. Open for lunch and dinner and on the railroad tracks.

We go to Brad's a lot. It's always easy to get in and we really like the BBQ. The Potato Salad is outstanding. We get quarts of it when we have guests at our house for casual dining. BBQ is a selective taste and some don't like Brads and some do. We do!! Drive up window is great for take... More

Like your BBQ hot or mild? Want ribs, chicken, pork, beef and homemade sides that remind you of mom's home cooking, plus? A quaint atmosphere that offers American nostalgia for you to view.

I have been eating at Brad's for 15 or so years. I have had most everything on the menu. It is exactly the same today as it was 15+ years ago. I have had better BBQ, but their food and service are consistent. I highly recommend their sides, especially the beans, potato salad and slaw.

My husband and I took the kids one day for lunch and we can't wait to go again. Everything was just delicious. We all cleaned our plates. And the sweet tea was just perfect! Prices are very reasonable. Go! You have to! Trust me, just do it!

This is a great place to call ahead and get some bbq. Ribs were just right. I've had the burgers here also and thought they were excellent. Great small town atmosphere. always coming back for more.
