"The ribs at Germantown Commissary are the best ribs I have ever eaten!" said my husband after our first of three meals at Germantown Commissary during our stay in the Memphis area. We continued our search for the perfect ribs, but nowhere else came close.

The homemade ranch dressing in the BBQ salad is AMAZING and the coconut pie is like a Mounds bar in a crust - DELICIOUS! The pulled pork tasted good but was a bit dry for my taste. The spicy BBQ sauce made everything that much better and the baked beans were like no other we have had - again, delicious. A rack of ribs for two plus a BBQ salad fed our family of four AND we still had leftovers.

It would be worth designing a day around - Germantown is a cute town with lots of shopping. Enjoy!

An opulent version of the great Memphis pig sandwich: the mix of sauce and slaw is magic, and the texture of the pulled pork is heavenly.

Germantown is a deluxe area east of the city; its Commissary attracts customers from miles around.

A half-and-half plate, to go: a demi-slab of ribs atop pulled pork on the left. With beans in the foreground, cole slaw and a deviled egg at the upper right.

The interior of the Commissary is is a happy-go-lucky hodgepodge of eclectic decor on barnboard walls.
