My husband and I are both BBQ snobs and we were not disappointed in the least. We both had the rib plate with hot links but should have shared. The portions were huge! The ribs were fall off the bone and had a great flavor. The hot links are good but they definitely had a kick to them. The beans... More

You want to get sauce on the fries. There is an indoor tempered glass door smoker. You can watch the meat. Very casual atmosphere and you may smell of smoke. THE RIB TIPS WITH SAUCE ON THE FRIES!!!!! The line will sometimes go out the door! Meat is tender with great texture.

About every 2 months I get a craving for E&L BBQ. The ribs are huge and the meat is falling off the bone. I always have take-out with beans and potato salad and I honestly have enough for 2 meals. The sauce and flavor of the ribs is above and beyond any other I have tasted. I would recommend E... More

After reading "Best Ribs in Mississippi" on another review I probably set the bar too high. Mine were tender, but not quite falling off the bone. I'd go back. Good sides of potato salad and beans. Rib plate was $12.95. It's in a pretty sparse area of the city, daytime visits advised for most.

There are no problems in this restaurant. The sauce is tasty, the meat drips off the bone, the flavor unique. Definitely the best place to get BBQ in town!

I usually avoid places like this that are in bad neighborhoods. E &L is the exception. Everything here is good, but the rib tips are a tender, smoky masterpiece. The fries are good, but get sauce on them. Get sauce on everything!

Don't be fooled by these fancy restaurants falsely advertising BBQ, THIS IS THE REAL DEAL! Although I never go inside due to a little old run down building in a not so peaceful neighborhood, I don't let that block my BBQ blessing. I just send the Men folks to do my dirty work and bring me some rib tips with... More

Almost inedible......not good at all.....maybe... More

We were a bit disappointed because this place didn't live up to the great reviews shared before our visit. Looks like on a good day it's a local hot spot because they seemed to know many of the customera. There was a security guard around the door & a fairly long line. Unfortunately the meat was a little rough, dry,... More
