Family atmosphere, great food and prices. Love the half and half BBQ and spaghetti plate, but the ribs are to die for. Excellent beans and slaw. Good tea, great onion rings. Look no farther for BBQ.

Brad's has the typical BarBQ fare, not being originally from Memphis, I don't have the differentiating taste buds true Memphians are born with- I dont think I have ever had BAD barbecue. Open for lunch and dinner and on the railroad tracks.

We go to Brad's a lot. It's always easy to get in and we really like the BBQ. The Potato Salad is outstanding. We get quarts of it when we have guests at our house for casual dining. BBQ is a selective taste and some don't like Brads and some do. We do!! Drive up window is great for take... More

Like your BBQ hot or mild? Want ribs, chicken, pork, beef and homemade sides that remind you of mom's home cooking, plus? A quaint atmosphere that offers American nostalgia for you to view.

I have been eating at Brad's for 15 or so years. I have had most everything on the menu. It is exactly the same today as it was 15+ years ago. I have had better BBQ, but their food and service are consistent. I highly recommend their sides, especially the beans, potato salad and slaw.

My husband and I took the kids one day for lunch and we can't wait to go again. Everything was just delicious. We all cleaned our plates. And the sweet tea was just perfect! Prices are very reasonable. Go! You have to! Trust me, just do it!

This is a great place to call ahead and get some bbq. Ribs were just right. I've had the burgers here also and thought they were excellent. Great small town atmosphere. always coming back for more.

The bar-b-que was good; however, my grandmother and I both felt sick after eating the potato salad. The service and atmosphere were okay. There are certainly better bar-b-que places in the Memphis area.

I am little confused why this place is listed under Memphis when it is in Bartlett. I have not eaten here in about 6-7 years and the food is still as good as it was then. Service is quick, the pulled pork & spaghetti is first-rate, and I like the relaxed atmosphere. I always recommend this to those who don't... More

Brad's does not have the high awareness level of several of the other bbq places in and around the Memphis area but they should. In business for over 35 years and with three locations (Bartlett (burb) of Memphis, Moscow and Oakland (distance burb of Memphis) they do bbq right. They offer the standard fare of pulled (or chopped) bbq with... More
