This new restaurant location for One and Only BBQ is quite a treat. It is casual and open with lots of windows. The wait staff is excellent. I recommend the BBQ Bologna plate with pickles and slaw. The deviled eggs are a must for appetizer. The BBQ is rich with sauce and plentiful on the bun. Save room for Dessert.... More

We are visiting Memphis and found this place favored by locals. It does a brisk carry-out business and has about 20 seats inside and tables out on the sidewalk. The mixed green salad with strawberries and pecans was delicious and large enough to share. The ribs were excellent. Service was friendly and attentive. The green beans had sugar in them... More

We found this BBQ by accidents when the Italian restaurant around the corner did not have a table available. The seating is limited with a brisk take out business, so tables in the front near the counter are somewhat cramped. The food more than makes up for this minor inconvenience. The menu has a variety of meat combos. We sampled... More

Wife and I were in a fight! "For the love of God, please just pick a place to it" "Fine barbecue, that place looks busy, just go there!" "Fine!!!" "Fine!!!" Getting in the argument was a blessing in disguise. I loved this place! The pulled pork was one of the best sandwiches I have ever had!! Sauce was just okay,... More

In a city that is full of BBQ this little place is a standout. Firstly the staff is extraordinarily friendly - there was even a sweet lady standing out in the drizzling rain directing cars to parking spots or the drive thru lane. We decided to go inside to see what it was like - there wasn't an empty table... More

We ordered Bake Beans (good), Texas Toast came out over cooked(burned) and we returned it, Mac and Cheese was not hot and had shredded cheese sitting on top that was unmelted (bad), the Dry Rub Ribs (good), the wet BBQ RIbs ( good). Beef Brisket was tender and (good). Pricey dinner but larger servings needed.

So glad we stopped here on our way out of Memphis! The BBQ is fantastic, the sides delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. It is a small place but the BBQ had big flavor. Would definitely go back. Give the banana pudding dessert a try!

went for lunch and everything was very good, from the baked beans to the pulled pork. this restaurant is better than some of the highly touted bbq restaurants in memphis. you won't get pitchers of beer or stuffy, indifferent waiters, but you will get good food. we will definitely return soon.

Thank jim w
