Re: “B&C Melrose BBQ

I'm a huge bbq lover and B&C is without a doubt the best in the area. The location makes picking up very fast and easy, it also has a good sized dining area to eat in. The Brisket is out of this world!! Definitely a must try BBQ joint

Re: “Peg Leg Porker

This place is awesome, great food and a real deal Memphis style BBQ joint that is a welcome relief to the oft copied rough hewn lumber and galvanized tin style of so many others.

Re: “Cantrell's Bar-B-Que

Caution!!! Do not go!! This place is filthy (roaches on the floor), the food was under cooked, and they tried to over charge me. Very shady. Would never go back.

When I saw our ribs coming out of the microwave I knew we were in trouble

Re: “Mary's Old Fashioned Pit Barbecue

We bought groupons and started off with the fish sandwiches and bbq. The fish was dried out and chewy and the bbq was far from fall of the bone. I was not impressed with the building itself but sometimes you get those "hole in the walls" and usually the food is pretty good. In this case the food was bad and so was the customer service. I will never buy another groupon for this place or personally support them.

Re: “Rippy's Smokin' Bar & Grill

Not sure which BBQ place the other reviewer went to but it definitely wasn't rippy's... Service was horrible, I felt like I was imposing on the staff to ask for a refill on my flat soda. I had to drink soda because the beer they brought me was warm. Ribs were dried out and a big let down considering they boast to have the best in Nashville. I never write negative reviews but had to on this one. Open for other suggestions!

Re: “Mary's Old Fashioned Pit Barbecue

Got a groupon for this place.... got bbq plate w/ beans and slaw... my beans had a hair them....right from the start. Slaw wasn't all that good either. It was hot in the dining room, and the tables felt greasy to the touch, and it smelled dirty in there too. Not mention this place is in the GHETTO !!

Re: “Stone House Q [Closed]

I have only been here once, but man was it good! The meat was so tender, the mac and cheese was to die for, and the employees were very friendly! I can't wait to go back!!

Re: “Stone House Q [Closed]

Get there while it's hot and before it's gone and it'll be the best smoked and pulled pork you have ever had in Nashville. I don't know how they do it, but they do it well.

Re: “Stone House Q [Closed]

Wow!! Best BBQ I have ever had. The pulled pork was perfectly smoked and tender, the coleslaw of a flawless consistency and the corn light bread a wonderful compliment to the food. My husband got the ribs and swears he'll never go anywhere else for a better execution AND DEAL; the mess O'greens so delicious you wouldn't know you were eating healthy! With Happy Hour prices that you can't beat offered all day, we will return whenever we crave some southern barbecue DONE RIGHT and cheap cold one to wash it all down :)

Stone House Q puts Hog Heaven, Jacks, Calhouns, Jim N' Nicks, Whitts, and Famous Daves COMBINED to shame! Thanks for becoming a new favorite!

@Lee "My father ordered a steak..well-done." A true sign that you should stick to eating at home.

Re: “Rooster's Texas Style BBQ

I love BBQ and I've tried most every place around here. This is not far from my office (Music Row), so we have gone there a few times for work.

First, if you don't know, Rooster is the guy that owns it (you'll usually see him walking around), and his brother is the one that owned Judge Beans (and has since sold it to some other guys, so the two no longer have a formal business relationship). The menu is similar to JB's in some respects (I get the brisket and chicken wraps at both places), but different in others. JB's clearly took the recipes and dishes and tinkered with it a bit. I like Rooster's brisket and chicken, but I'm shocked that they don't have pulled pork. Maybe it's a Texas thing. But, most of the main dishes are very tasty. I'm not a fan of their style of fries - very thick cut (I prefer thin and crispy instead of thick and soggy), but to each his own. I love the onion straws, really tasty.

The service has been up and down when we've been there. The staff is always friendly, but the food has not always been timely. The last two times our group has gone there for lunch, our orders have taken around/at least 30 minutes to come out, no exaggeration. In one case we had afternoon meetings and told them we would have to leave if it didn't get there soon, which it did. But, then this happened the next time we went. Anything past 10 minutes is stretching it, and this went way over the line. But, other times the food has come out in plenty of time.

I would love to try their steaks, but they are WAY too expensive for a BBQ place that is serving steaks. Or maybe my expectations are too low. If I'm going to drop $30 on a dinner entree, I expect a real plate (not styrofoam) and real utensils (maybe they give you metal ones with the steaks, I don't know, but most times you just get plastic). Maybe it's good, but I haven't gotten brave enough to risk wasting the money.

If I were going to change anything about the place I'd make the service more consistent, add pulled pork to the menu, and make their fries smaller/crisper.

Re: “Mary's Old Fashioned Pit Barbecue

The newly remodeled facility, Large screen TV, Excellent Staff and Service was all so pleasant. But to TOP it off. I saw a young lady at work with a plate overlapping to the brim with delicious looking food that smelled fantastic. Everyone was OOOOO ing and AWWWW ing at work. My husband grew up in the surroundings and was very familiar after informing him of about the young lady's plate and Mary's BBQ. We visited last night. Oh my - there is not a word to describe their food. (i.e. One fish sandwich held 4 fish on 2 slices of bread with 1/2 plate of fries) (i.e. cobbler to die for) (i.e. Ribs, Turnip Greens & corncakes are perfectly seasoned) It is UMMMM UMMMM GOOD!!!!!!! Delicious!!!! Worth every penny. Monies worth........Not too expensive at all. They cook like Soulfood grandmothers and serve you UP!!! I commend this restaurant 100% I felt comfortable in the newly remodeled facility. Thank you for such a wonderful experience. AND we will be back as regular customers. Ant & ACE Ewing.
