There's a long line inside this fluorescent-lit, linoleum-floored barbecue joint, and you better know what you want when you get up to that glass window — or be able to figure it out fast — 'cause it's hot back there and they don't suffer fools lightly. But when you get that plate full of meat with those soft, square slices of white bread and sit down with a bottle of sauce and dig in, it's pretty much one of those meals you're always going to remember.  — Maryse Chevriere, 2/18/2011

While the Original sauce is famous, don't leave without trying the Rich and Spicy.

Arthur Bryants is delicious... all 3 sauces are great, but the original is still a favorite, no matter where I travel. The new location is awesome and they have great people behind the counter!

Sweet heat bbq sauce is great, short end ribs were great, not dry at all. Combo meal provided abundance of food but that is a good problem. Check it

1/2 pound is already a lot of meat. Be wary of going higher than this.

I didn't know what to expect, but the first thing I didn't like was the way you got your food.

Biggest BBQ let-down of my life. Drove 3 hours to try it and was so disappointed.
