Central BBQ, Memphis


Small BBQ joint, with maybe ten tables inside, plus a large patio area with about 15 tables outside.  You get in line to order and pay, and when your order is up, a waiter calls out your number as he’s walking around to give you your food.

They have apparently won best Memphis BBQ many years in a row.  And since they opened in 2002, they’ve always been in at least the top three.  Very reasonable prices.  Big helpings.  There was nothing we didn’t like.  We DID think the shredded pork and chicken were a bit dry.  But I guess that’s the point of BBQ sauce!  The sausage was probably the best I’ve ever had!  They had 4 or 5 different sauces you could use.  All in all, a good place for a bit of Memphis BBQ!  Everyone who worked there was super friendly and helpful!
