From MemphisTravel.com and the restaurant:
"Famous for our barbecue sandwich on Texas toast. Also famous for our barbecue spaghetti, which was featured on the Bobby Flay show on the Food Network. Also, only restaurant that has won the No. 1 Barbecue Sandwich in the Commercial Appeal, Memphis Flyer and the Memphis magazine."


"The Bar-B-Q Shop, a comfortable Midtown restaurant owned and operated by Frank Vernon and his son Eric. ... may well be the best barbecue restaurant in the country's preeminent barbecue city. Or at least the amateur barbecue judges around the Flyer offices think so."

- Chris Herrington, Memphis Flyer
