Hey John, We are so glad you gave us a try, however, we would love to know what you think we could do differently. We have been in business for over 9 yrs. and have done a lot of catering and serving customers. Most of the time they love our products and feel like we do a very good job... More

Bo-Mack's has awesome food. We love the pulled pork, brisket and the macaroni and cheese. We really miss the full service restaurant. They have limited seating but it just is not the same. If you want great BBQ come here and get your full.

Hey Dani, Thank you so much for the kudos on everything! We really appreciate the support and we love feeding y'all! The kids have all grown up and it's just been to hard for me to continue at the 220 seat pace restaurant! Hope to see you again soon at the Lyon St. location~Momma BoMack More

Keep in mind this is a really small restaurant, they specialize in take-out and catering. We ordered a Wagon Wheel at 3pm on Saturday, they were already out of chicken and pull pork. We were told at the time of ordering and they made up for it with more of the other meats. But we were trying sample each of... More

Howdy there, Thanks so much for leaving a review, we so appreciate hearing your feedback! I'm so sorry to hear you weren't able to try the chicken and pulled pork. We do occasionally sell out of certain items on busy days. We do planning and review meetings monthly here so I will take your suggestion of increasing the size sides... More

Same great food, same warm and friendly service. I went in around noon and the inside seating was close to full. I would anticipate taking the order out and look at it as a bonus if you get a seat inside during lunch hours. Off hours I am guessing there are plenty of seats. I thought that parking would be...

The first time we visited, we ordered pork and when we got it home it was chicken. The next time we visited, we told them what had happened and they gave us a discount. We are glad to say they have moved to a small location down town where we can now eat on site. We are displaced Tennesseans and... More

If you like hot BBQ, kind of messy and a lot of it, this is the place for you. It was just a bit over the top for me, but if you are feeding hungery men they might like it. Kind of a downhome 1960's feel.

Hello Phylis H., Thank you for letting us know how you felt about your experience here with us. I know that BBQ can definitely be shirt sleeve eatin' and that's why we include a wet nap. We do give 1/2 lb. portions on our plates, unless you request a lite plate which is only 4 oz.. I hope you at... More

Easy in and out for this 'to go' BBQ. Got both the pulled pork and brisket by the pound. Great depth of flavor and texture. The side of mac and cheese was lame. Very dry on both occasions I tried it, hoping the 1st time was not the usual. Best Q I've had in the area.

This is a poorly run family business. They used to be in a downtown location with a lovely atmosphere, but now they are in an old gas station just off the interstate. I stopped in about a month ago and ordered to go. This was in the middle of the afternoon and I was the only one there. Even though... More

Hey Arnold, I am so sorry you feel like you were treated so badly. I understand that it totally makes sense to just assume you were the only person there at the time. However, I can tell you from costly experience that this minor technicality has cost me a small fortune, because if you get someone else's meal and then... More

Ordered family meals to take to family dinner. Rack of ribs, brisket and pulled pork. Potato salad, coleslaw and baked beans were excellent. Corn bread with honey butter were awesome! Pricey but worth it! Their food and service are excellent! Wish we had one in Portland! My daughter used them to cater a baby shower. They are top notch!
