stopped by on the way to an appointment for a quick bite. Even though it was after 5:00, there was only one other customer. We seated ourselves and had a pleasant, friendly server. As we left more than 30 minutes later only one other couple had arrived - and this was dinnertime. The barbecue was good - but a little... More

My husband and I went to eat here last night. Ribs were not eatable and then found a hair in my fries! Never going back!

This is west Tennessee where all we do is BBQ. Brads does it right, fast service, great food, cold beer, clean and a good atmosphere.

I am from Memphis so I am pretty tough on BBQ restaurants. Thought the bbq was great and the service was great too. Wasn't too impressed with potato salad and another of a party wasn't too fond of the cole slaw. But I go to a BBQ place I go for the Q and it was great!

The BBQ pork was moist but really lacked much of a smokey flavor. The sauce was good and the portion size was decent. Don't think I'd stop back.

We dined at Brad's last night for the first (and very probably last) time ever. We had seen it for several years when driving by it on our way from Memphis to go to... More

Dry, cold, old food that is a disappointment for a small town restaurant. Stopped it to take out lunch and when I got it home it was old, chopped up, DRY as sawdust, hay looking BBQ. The coleslaw was old as well, the cabbage was wilted, brown and sour, which means that it was a few days old. Will not... More
