We ate at the Commissary the Friday night before the Liberty Bowl. It was wall to wall people. Our wait was over a hour but the food was very good. Friendly staff and clean.

Service here is fantastic. Very friendly and attentive. The pulled pork was just ok. Was not a fan of the banana pudding dessert. Will give it another shot and try something else.

Always a family favorite when we visit Memphis. Ribs are fantastic, caramel cake is a requisite dessert.

Didn't really see anything authentically German there. It may have been settled by Germans but not much left of that, that I could see.
