Home of the DANCING PIGS Bar-B-Q Sauce and Seasoning. Serving the Same Recipe for over 50 Years. "Our Pork Bar-B-Q & Beef Bar-B-Q are cooked on a real Bar-B-Q Pit, and our Mild & Hot Sauces are made from Scratch!!" - From the Owner, Frank Vernon
I like to atmosphere however the jumbo barbeque sandwich is on a small bun and guess what he small barbeque sandwich is also on a small bun. Who are these people trying to fool, they claimed to have put more meat on the jumbo sandwich. They are not consistent with the flavor of the meat. The first time I went the sandwich was good but the second time the sandwich was not so good. If you are looking to be served a cold barbeque sandwich then this is the place for you. I don t think I will be a repeat customer.
We had the unfortunate experience in your restaurant the night you ran out of food. You held the customers hostage by having the servers tell them the order was being pulled every 15 min. It got to the point the servers stop serving drinks because they did not want to face any customers. This happen to other tables around us too.Two hours later we left and no one not you or the staff apologized.
The excuse we heard was Central was closed that day and you did not expect the large crowd. If you ran out of food why did you not tell us and why did you sit us down? I do not understand how another bbq shop not related to your establishment dictates how you run your business.
You and your staff ruined our family outing and memory of Memphis BBQ.
Plain and Simple do not stop here if you are from out of town. I came here for the so called best bbq in memphis and i think i would find better BBQ in New York City. They suck!! The Brisket was super dry and they didnt give us any BBQ suace. What kind of BBQ spot forgets to give you BBQ sauce? It wouldnt matter if the Brisket was juicy but it sure wasnt, i almost choked trying to eat it. However i can say the BBQ Spaghetti was good, and the ribs were super very tender. I wwouldnt recomend stopping here if you are from out of town they give Memphis BBQ a Bad rating in my book. Had way better BBQ in other places 
My wife and I were driving thou and asked a person where do you get the best BBQ in town. He said like what. I said where all the reg. people eat. He said well it a drive. Isaid let me go and what and BBQ shop it was some of the best food and nices people I've ever meet. Its not big but its big on food and family. We will be back!!!!!!!! Muskogee Oklahoma
The only qualifier I have to place is that this place has the best DRY RIBS in town. The wet ribs are ok .... which in any other town would be outstanding. But the dry ribs are really something special....even if your not a fan of dry... give them a shot. They are amazing.
I've known Frank and his son Eric for years. I have lived in Memphis my whole life (54 years) and I have eaten at practically every BBQ joint in town. I have come to the conclusion that most every place in Memphis can cook ribs and pork. What sets The BBQ shop above all the rest is the sauce. Dancing Pigs BBQ sauce is, with out a doubt, the best sauce I have ever tasted, and I have eaten BBQ all over the USA, from east coast to west coast. You can buy it in the grocery stores, but even the store bought does not compare with the sauce that they mix up in the restaurant. Get them to bring you a fresh warm squirt bottle of sauce when you go in. Ask for it on the side to your meal so you can add all you want. I even use it for the seasoned fries that are just to die for. Also, if you get a sandwich, order it on Texas Toast. The Ribs are great, the BBQ Baloney is great. It's all good. If you are going to hit one place in Memphis for BBQ and only one place, you will regret it if you don't choose The BBQ Shop.

The burgers are definitely big and juicy, but many customers are drawn by the deep fried onion rings and mushrooms,
the live music on Sunday afternoons, and the late evening hours. If you are looking for something besides burgers, ...
