THE COMMISSARY IS KNOWN TO ATTRACT A FEW FAMILIAR FACES FROM AROUND THE NATION.
We have served numerous celebrities over the past 25 years. Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Jimmy Buffet, Robert Duvall, Kathy Bates, Senator Bill Frist, The Eagles, Aerosmith, and Jack Nicklaus are just a few of the famous that have graced our doors over the years.
The Commissary Story
We are constantly asked, "What is a Commissary and why are you called this?" Commissary's were small country stores throughout the South. They sold everything from blue jeans to bologna.
The original Commissary, in Germantown, Tennessee was a small country store for over 90 years, until Walker Taylor bought it in 1981 and turned it into one of the best Memphis BBQ joints around.
So good y'ull slap yo' Mama!
We hope you enjoy our hickory-smoked, slow-cooked Memphis BBQ & Ribs the folks around here have enjoyed for over 25 years. We cook the old-time, Memphis-style BBQ way.
Let the Germantown Commissary cater your next party with mouth watering Memphis style BBQ that your guests are sure to love. We can serve between 10 and 10,000 hungry people. Full or self-service, leave the work and worry to us! Also, remember you don't have to live in Memphis to enjoy our food - Buy BBQ online!
The staff at Germantown Commissary really hopes you enjoy your meal. Please let us know how we may serve you better. If you like us, tell a friend! If you don't, tell us so we can take care of you better when you come see us again!
