Has the right vibe for a BBQ place, nothing fancy and seems like its been there for a while. Counter service, pretty quick even with a line out the door. Beer selection is modest, but a reasonable variety of local beer and much better than you might expect from a place like this. The food wasn't bad, but it was a huge letdown compared to the hype. I've had better ribs at many places and these were mediocre and expensive. I wouldn't go back or recommend it, you can do better in Memphis for beer and for ribs.

Not great for beer, but the BBQ was great. The service isn't anything special, you order at the counter and no one checks in for drink refills or additional items on your order. Honestly go to one and only, the foods better there are a handful of decent beer options and they have better service.

A great BBQ place in the heart of Mamphis. Great atmosphere, great food and a decent selection of local beer on tap. Definitely worth a trip but it gets jammed packed.

BBQ joint with some good beer options. Visited during a trip to Memphis in the "off season" -February.

Food and drinks are ordered at the counter. You get your beer right away then wait for food to be delivered via number. There is a main dining room, then an enclosed porch area, then outdoors too. Live music.

Beer selection was decent - they had local Wiseacre on tap, plus bottled offerings from Ghost River, and cans from Southern Prohibition. Some other selections as well.

The BBQ was excellent.
