Central BBQ - Downtown
147 E Butler Ave, Memphis, Tennessee 38103
A family-friendly and award winning classic.
Check out the Downtown Central BBQ for authentic Memphis flair, potentially with some live Blues!
While there are plenty of incredible BBQ places all over the city, our favorite is Central BBQ. With several locations around town, it isn’t hard to find their legendary pulled pork nachos or home-baked seasoned chips dipped in ranch.
It is kid-friendly and there are options for everyone, even those who aren’t BBQ fans! I recommend going to the original downtown location by the Civil Rights Museum to get the full experience with occasional live music and a classic Memphis atmosphere.
