  • Best BBQ Ever!!!!! Brisket is the ISH and super fast service
  • Don't be discouraged if long waiting line to/out the door. They r incredibly efficient @ getting u n & seated for some great BBQ. I've historically been an Interstate BBQ fan but this is my new fav!
  • Awesome ribs - not-so-awesome slaw.
  • My new favorite BBQ joint in Memphis. The staff is beyond incredible and made the experience twice as enjoyable. They're doing everything right at Central BBQ.

  • Wings and mac are the best. So is the service. Ribs are ok.
  • Best BBQ in Memphis! My favorites are beef brisket sandwich, smoked hot wings naked, potatoes salad, and of course, the smoked ribs slab, try half(dry) & half(wet). Good local beer selections!
  • Tasty pulled pork sandwiches and ribs. Crowded and noisy but spacious. Great place to taste the local Memphis food
  • I got a rib plate with bbq beans and homemade chips. The ribs are fall off the bone good but I wasnt that wild about the sauce. But the beans are some of the best Ive ever had. Chips werent great.
  • Great barbecue - not fancy, not oversauced, just tender and tasty. Real banana pudding. Good selection local tap beer.
