VERY crowded, very dirty. Food is average for BBQ. We recommend Corkeys or Interstate for a great Memphis dinner (more)

This place is an eating experience; the crowded, rustic atmostphere's probably part of what contributes to the attraction. There have been 4 to 6 of us each visit and we have tried about everything and liked it all. My... (more)

After all of the great things I heard about this place, I have to say I was a bit let down. As a Memphis native, I am very particular to BBQ especially IN the Memphis area. I had the 2 meat plate which came with a small slab of... (more)

The owner of this restaurant is obviously relishing in his success. He is rude and arrogant and has managed to convince his staff that customer service is of no consequence to his guests. They have a corner on the... (more)

Food here is doubt. The smell when you walk in is wonderful and the place stays crowded. Crowds can be a negative thing, but not in a restaurant...they are doing something right if they keep the seats filled.... (more)

Food is always delic, but there are a few servers there that almost make me scared to ask for anything extra..... rough and tough.... certainly makes the experience less than enjoyable.... (more)

Flew 1850 miles and drove 30 miles just to get ?so-so? BBQ. This place it rated as perhaps the ?Q? in Memphis but I didn?t see it. My lunch was pork ribs and pulled pork. The ribs were dry and hard; the silver skin on the... (more)

<b>The Scene</b><br>Tucked away behind the tracks, this glorified shed bustles with business lunchers treating out-of-town clients and locals greeting servers by name. Hanging lanterns offset the wooden... (more)

Ribs are the best, pulled pork excellent but my favorite is the smoked sausage sandwich! If in the area is a can't miss place! Fortunately my daughter and family live in Germantown and the Commissary is my first stop... (more)

The barbecue sandwiches are terrific, and so is the rest of the food. I never knew devilled eggs could be so good. The bad part is I only live 2 minutes away, so it's tough to stay out of there. Parking is a problem, though.... (more)

The Germantown Commissary is located in an old building that if you didn't know to look for it, you might miss it. It has been rated as one of Memphis' top BBQ restaurants. It offers BBQ Nachos, wet or dry ribs, BBQ... (more)

As a former Memphian, I am confidant in saying that the Commissary has the best BBQ in town. The pulled pork has such a wonderful taste that you almost don't need the sauce. If you try to go eat at 7 pm on a Friday night, like... (more)

Every time I've been to the commissary everything has been great. From the service to the food and the affordable prices... I recommend this place to everyone that wants good bar-b-q!... (more)

I am from Germantown and after eating BBQ from places like Corky's for years I found the best in my own backyard. The potato salad is the best anywhere and the banna pudding will make you "slap yo mamma"... (more)

I'm living in Memphis for the summer, and went on a mission to find the best barbecue place in town. I've eaten a LOT of BBQ while I've been here, and I can truly say this place has THE best ribs in Memphis. Even my... (more)

Cute little part of town where there appears to be lots of money -- and there is definately some X-cellent BBQ! Devilled Eggs go nicely with the incredible pulled pork sandwiches. Classic banana pudding with nilla... (more)

This is the world's greatest coconut cream pie!!! I lve in Florida, but look forward to projects in the Memhis are - just for the Commissary! The BBQ is great, but have the pie first to be sure you have room for it all!... (more)

I've tried almost all the BBQ Rib places in Memphis and I must say the Germantown Commissary is my favorite. If you like Coconuts, you'll love their pie too! (more)
