Great Food, Poor Service
Yes, the BBQ at The Commissary is the best in Memphis! That is for certain. Their ribs are as perfect as they could be. Their tamales are also excellent.
Then, there's the issue of actually having a meal there. That's where the problem is. You sit down in the cramped shotgun-shaped area with chairs smack up against each other. The waitress comes over and wants your order before you even look at the menu. Plus, she wants you to order an appetizer. The trick is that, if you do order one, you get it with your entree, pretty much thrown at you.
Very unpleasant, plus the food is lukewarm. Their whole objective is to get you in and get you out as quickly as possible. Even though it wasn't busy at the time.
Food: Five Stars / Service: Zero Stars
Bottom Line: Get the food for take out and heat it up when you get home.
Rating: 3 / 5 (3 Out of 5 Stars)
