    Jim Neely's Interstate BBQ: You MUST eat at this place!

    We stopped at Neely's on our way out of Memphis. This is some of the best BBQ I have ever eaten! And it is super cheap! Only $8 for a full slab of ribs! This is a can't miss restaurant. It's in a more rundown part of town but you will find the clientele is more upscale, as it is a tourist spot.

    Favorite Dish: Definitely get the ribs!

    Neely's Bar-B-Que Restaurant: Two Words: Loved it!

    by TravellerMel Written Aug 25, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stars of the Food Network's "Down Home with the Neelys", this is their namesake restaurant. Besides being famous, and frequented by celebrities, it is also close to our Memphis office, which made it perfect for our lunch! Dining room is very casual, wait staff is very friendly, and the iced tea never made it down to 1/2 before refills were coming. Two words: LOVED IT!

    Favorite Dish: We all had the small pork sandwiches with cole slaw - it's a good thing I didn't get the large. I was able to finish the small and my appetite was sated. BBQ sauce is the sweet (but not too sweet) sauce I like, although I wish there had been a little more of it. Pulled pork was tender and juicy - it was simply scrumptious!

    We asked at the visitor's center for a good BBQ place, and the lady there sent us to Neely's. Apparently Neely's has two locations in Memphis and one in Nashville.

    The restaurant was started in 1988 by four brothers. By 1997, it was voted the best ribs in Memphis and then in Nashville. Al Roker has given Neely's his stamp of approval, and they have also been featured on Good Morning America, and The Food Network with Bobby Flay. Their food is served in FedEXForum in Memphis and Gaylord Entertainment Center in Nashville. Neely's BBQ sauce is sold in local grocery stores, Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores.

    They also do catering.
