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

i was dying to try this spot, as i was just craving some real deal barbeque. so, i drove on down to this spot and made my order. i'll try and be brief.
i could write about 5 paragraphs, but let me just encapsulate, and save you some time: first off, it was way expensive for 'neighborhood barbecue'.
a half slab of ribs, a fried catfish sandwhich, and 3 very CHINCY dixie cup size sides (beans, potato salad, and corn bread), was $26.73...OUCH!!
before leaving, i looked in to the bag and went over my order with the lady, to make sure everything was in the bag, but somehow, when i got home, i realized she forgot to put the barbecue sauce in with the ribs. no sauce? OUCH!!
i actually had to go out again to Kroger and get some. no excuse for this oversight. OUCH!!
my girlfriend said that good ribs should be 'fall-off-the-bone tender', but these were far from it. i had the fried catfishfish sandwhich, which was fair, a portion more than i could eat...but without the pickles and hotsauce, it was like eating two pieces of cornmeal-dipped cardboard on wonder bread.
bottom line: WAY TOO MUCH MONEY FOR SUCH AN EXPERIENCE. for this price, you could share appetizers at J. Alexander's. Or stuff your faces at Las Palmas, and have money left over toward a movie...
forget it...

Re: “Jim 'N' Nick's Bar-B-Q

very average BBQ. The nachos are good, albeit a rip from the Memphis joints. Bynum's BBQ in Memphis has the best BBQ potatoes. but the bottom line is that the meat is average and I cannot get past my intro to the original Jim n Nicks in BHM years ago...they served me a sliced pork sandwich - the horror!

Re: “South Street Original Crab Shack, Smokehouse And Treehouse Oyster Bar

I returned to South Street after several years to only to be severely disappointed by the food we ordered.. My parents were visiting from out of town so I wanted to treat them to a "Nashville favorite" and it was anything but that.. Three of us ordered the pumped chicken and it was so dry that after several bites we were all finished. I don't remember the pumped chicken being so unappetizing in the past..My father ordered a steak..well-done. When it came, it very rare, almost raw, and he said that it was the worst steak he had ever had. It was so tough that it was hard to cut. The manager was kind enough to take it off the bill since it took a while to re-cook the meat. Overall, the service was very good and they did try very hard to please...I only hope that this night was an exception. We would hate to end our visits to South Street.
