I've past by One and Only BBQ quite often and wondered about it. In a town known for BBQ, the standards for having a great product is higher than most cities.
When entering One and Only, you are greeted with the wonderful smells of cooking BBQ! The dining options are both inside and outside. The inside is small, but not cramp. The outside has several tables.
Service is friendly and quick. Greeted right away even though it was slightly busy. The menu is on a large chalkboard and standard menu.
I ordered a half rack of ribs with coleslaw and twice baked potato salad.
The sides were ok. But the highlight was the ribs! The ribs was the perfect combination of smokey taste, meaty with just the right amount of fat. I opt for the wet and the sauce was a great stick to your fingers, want to lick off sauce. Unlike a better known BBQ, the half rack portion was a nice portion.
The pricing was reasonable. While One and Only is not as well known as other places in Memphis, it's worth visiting and enjoying a great meal.

I loved the atmosphere of One and Only and I was pleased with the quick and friendly service they provided. I finally tried the twice baked potato salad with a 1/3 rack of ribs and absolutely loved them!
