While in TN, we decided to try one of the DDD's featured places. Great feel of a down home BBQ joint. Friendly staff. We started with the fried pickles. They were great. Something we had never had. Ordered the ribs, beans, potato salad and mac and cheese. Everything was great. Our least favorite was the cornbread pancake, but it was... More

I got off the plane and a friend took me here to try their pulled pork sandwiches. I had the Big Bad Wolfalong with some cornbread and a sweet tea to drink. It was very good with the Big Bad Wolf thick sweet bbq sauce. Good way to start off my visit to the Nashville area.

Visiting from out of town, searching for a local restaurant, and our family members suggested Center Point because of its reputation for great barbeque. We wanted a place where we could wear our jeans and relax and enjoy the food. The food was wonderful; the service was great; the environment left a little to be desired! We ate the barbeque... More

The fried pork chop was the waiters recommendation. We're glad we listened. The wings were smoked and not my favorite. The loaded baked potato with minced pork & cheese was great. We got to try 3 of 6 BBQ sauces. We liked the sweet and sassy the best.

Still had a good taste but the minced was a little dry. Had to use a lot of sauce The portion was more than we could eat. But I think I will go to the pulled next time. The cornbread was good. The tables were all dirty when we arrived and had to ask for the table to be cleaned.... More

Ribs, so tender, so good, worth the trip. The ham is fantastic and the pulled pork is great also. Sweet surprise sauce, give it a try.

Was recommended to eat here by a friend from East Nashville. Very nice pulled pork. The sauce could have had more heat but was ok. Corn bread good. Attentive and helpful staff. Yeah. Pretty good.

Looking for a down to Earth good BBQ house, this is the place for you. Ribs, Chicken, Brisket , and Turkey slow cooked to its finest. While many take out, there is plenty of indoor seating where you can enjoy the ambiance, with the food. Caring staff, quick to offer drink refills.

The last couple of visits to Center Point BBQ have been let downs. With family visiting from out of town, I wanted to treat them to good local BBQ. I bragged about Center Point and ended up being embarrassed. It was as if the restaurant had given up. My pulled pork was so dry, no amount of sauce could revive... More

My husband and I recently stopped by Centerpoint for an early dinner and the food was awful. White beans were not seasoned and cold. The barbecue was dry and difficult to choke down and the cornbread was half done. This has been our favorite barbecue joint for several years but this was a waste of time and money.
