Very good food and a friendly staff. There was not a long wait and didn't have to wait long on food at lunch either. Very good.

We like to search out local places when we travel. Taste of Memphis sounded good.....it was NOT good. The potato salad and slaw were tasteless and the bbq tasted aweful! The bbq sauce was like ketchup Guess being from South Carolina we are spoiled. Either Taste Of Memphis was just aweful OR we would not like bbq in Memphis

The meat was dry and although it was cheap was not worth the money. Although, the sides were good I don't recommend slaw or onion rings

We had dinner at Taste of Memphis, locals told us it was the place to go for BBQ. They were right! When you can smell the smoke as you walk up to the place you just know it is going to be great! I had a full rack of ribs, the young lady taking our order could have told me... More

We stopped even though it was a bit off the main highway. We are NC BBQ lovers so when they said we could get NC style upon request we went for it. The baked beans were a little spicy so go in ok with some heat. Fries were great. Slaw was ok. Tea was horrible....had to dump it. Bread was... More

We had the sampler. Huge piles of pulled pork and chicken. Best kolbasi ever and being from Pittsburgh we eat a lot of that. They smoke it. In fact we found this place via Google and the column of smoke from behind the strip mall. NC pork is very spicy-hot. Red and white checkered oilcloth on table, plastic knives and... More

Small quant place with exceptional food and service. In the Kroger shopping center this barbecue place is one of the best quality and best tasting cookouts around !! We had the sampler platter with ribs sausage chopped chicken and two different types of pulled pork, one of which was Carolina style. The sides we had were onion rings , slaw... More

Passing through this small town and tried out the BBQ here. I currently live in SC - have eaten a lot of pork BBQ over the years. Nothing fancy here - just good BBQ for the price.
