We stopped for lunch during our vacation. The beef brisket was wonderful. Loved the vinegar sauce. Husband had the ribs wet/ dry. Great place to eat!

We had the pulled pork plates. The portions were good. Mac and cheese, green beans and potato salad were all very good. Slaw was ok. Peanut Butter pie was very good. Loved the BBQ --next time we will get the ribs.

Please go and try the wet ribs.

I have eaten a lot of BBQ and this was hands down the best I have ever tired. The wet rub ribs were so tasty, smoky, crispy, fall of the bone, just awesome.

Parking easy, friendly staff, great craft beer. Go go go!

I grew up on Memphis BBQ, still miss the multiple small Loeb's BBQ restaurants on many corners of town but the pulled pork sandwiches here are far better. The atmosphere is tin-shed industrial with fast no nonsense great classic smoked pork. The rack of ribs was moist firm and tasty. The downtown location is well worth a visit.

We had a good lunch at Central BBQ but I thought it was slightly overcooked. In saying that we didn't get there for lunch till about 2:30pm but still if this is what you do then whenever your open you should be on point right? The flavour was delicious though and lots of great beers to choose from. All in all a good experience and worth a visit.
