BBQ meal and Pit tour at Central BBQ

Memphians know great BBQ and won’t settle for anything less. Central BBQ has been ranked in the top 3 BBQ restaurants in Memphis since 2003 and taken top honors 10 times.

At Central BBQ we slow smoke all our meats: ribs, pork, chicken, turkey, beef brisket, sausage and bologna. Our premium meats are rubbed with a secret combination of dry spices, marinated for 24 hours, then are smoked low and slow in the pit over a combination of hickory and pecan woods. No sauce is ever introduced into the pit.

You’ll want to try Central’s BBQ Nachos and smoked hot wings too. Save room for dessert - one of our resident hippies makes most of the desserts – so you know it’s good!
