I'm a vegetarian...and I ate the chicken. It's THAT good. Run here as fast as your legs will carry you and then waddle away happy.

Best BBQ Ever!!!!! Brisket is the ISH and super fast service
Don't be discouraged if long waiting line to/out the door. They r incredibly efficient @ getting u n & seated for some great BBQ. I've historically been an Interstate BBQ fan but this is my new fav!

My new favorite BBQ joint in Memphis. The staff is beyond incredible and made the experience twice as enjoyable. They're doing everything right at Central BBQ.
