If you like BBQ Tennessee’s is for You! It looks like a fast food place next door to Burgerking but this is real long-cooked BBQ with a variety of rubs, sauce choices, and totally amazing sides! Not fancy just fine!

One of my go to places for take out barbeque. Love their brisket, coleslaw and wings. Try a combination platter, usually a good value.

I had the brisket. It tasted as if it was boiled and not smoked on a pit or smoker. If you want real BBQ this is not the place. I stated this was my first time there and what they recommended. The staff was unsure...More
