Central BBQ

Central BBQ was born and raised in the fires of barbecue competition, where only the absolute best was good enough. Since its inception, Central BBQ has consistently been ranked the #1 spot for BBQ in Memphis. We think the secret ingredients to CBQ’s success include our delicious, fall-off-the-bone meat – smoked in southern hospitality, and doused with good times. So come take a load off and try us out for the first or thousandth time – we don’t think you’ll be disappointed!

Great place! Great BBQ! Staff was wonderful & helpful. Picnic Table on the outdoor patio is the way to go if the weather is right.
