I get take-out BBQ from this place on a regular basis. Love the ribs. Recommend getting baby backs with sweet potatoes, and slaw.

Very good BBQ. Commonwealth BBQ is better but I would not hesitate to come back again. Side of fries was very small but the size of the sandwich ensured I did not leave hungry.

I've been coming here for 4 years and love it. The food is cheap and incredible tasting. My favourite dish is the pulled pork burrito with mac n cheese and sweet potato fries. If I was on death row, that's the meal I'd order for my last. Big fan!

Tennessee's BBQ is the real thing. My daughter who has lived in New Orleans for several years agrees. The Memphis Ribs are great. So is the Dixie Chicken and the pulled pork and the collard greens and corn bread and everything else. The cartoon pigs with trucker hats and sun glasses saying "Bad to the bone" say it all. Where...

I'm an avid bbq lover, and this place is among the best. Their meat is always perfectly cooked, and on this trip the ribs were tender and falling off the bone. The sauce(s) they use are always a perfect blend, and their sides are hearty, and delicious. If you're passing through, or staying in the area, I HIGHLY recommend a... More

The prices are too high for the quality of food they serve. The place is in need of a facelift, and even more of a good cleaning. The doors handles are just gross...never mind the restrooms. The health department should stop by soon!!#

With all the new Q in the area in the past few years, I just hadn't gotten to Tennessee's in the past few years. Big mistake. Well priced, well smoked, and well sauced, I had the ribs/pulled pork combo yesterday and devoured it. It's not as good as BT's (but nothing in New England is), but it's more comfortable than...

Tennessee's Real Barbecue is a decent smokehouse barbecue, their cornbread is very good. St. Louis ribs smokey but not over the top. Close by southern food with very nice employees.

Very good Yankee translation of southern ribs. Choice of 3 BBQ sauces let you determine how tangy or spicy you want to taste your meal. Eat in or carry out.
