Native Memphian who has come here often. Their sausage is amazing. Sauce is spectacular and fried bologna is a southern classic. If you're a tourist don't expect a 5 star experience, but the food never let's down.

My husband and myself have been customers since the 70's. We drive about 40 mins. to go there for the best BBQ in the WORLD! The meat, slaw and sauce compliment each other perfectly. Dr's, Layers and everyone in between will be seen at Payne's. I love this place and the owners are the nicest people ever! A heavenly experience!

I have been a regular customer of Payne's since 1973. I don't come here for the elegant decor. I come because it is the best barbecue around and it is served up by the fine folks who own the place and have worked hard for 3 generations to keep the high standards set by Horton and Emily Payne when they started the business.

The best barbecue sandwich I have ever tasted

I thought it was over price for the portion of food I received. I ordered a large pork sandwiches and a hot link. They take cash only had to go to the store on the corner and use ATM. The pork sandwich had pieces of burnt chard which made the sandwich not favor full. I was not able finish the sandwich. The hot link okay with the yellow mustard slaw. The place was fulled full of smoke as though they were grilling inside the place. Came from Nashville,TN will. Never come back or tell anyone to go. To each it's own.

The best. Give yourself time, this is not Burger king. You'll chat with other patrons as well as the Paynes. Old gas station building.

Had a "Jumbo Chopped BBQ sandwich and a smoked sausage. WHOOO HOOOII!!! Washed it down with a grape Fanta! Plus a slice of peach pie, all for $12.55. I'm a big man, and I'm stuffed! Great BBQ and nice people.

This is the real thing! Best Bar-B-Q pork sandwich in Memphis. I always bring my clients here for a taste of what Memphis is famous for.
