My husband had a craving for BBQ. We have driven by Brad's BBQ many times and never stopped to try their BBQ. Fortunately, he was headed home and decided to get Brad's. He brought home ribs, pulled pork, coleslaw, onion rings and fries. (he was starving) Everything was very good. The ribs were tender and the sauce had a vinegary taste which I love.

Better than some would recomen that you give this a try the parking is good something that is a plus in Memphis. Try the pulled pork.

I have no ideas where the negative reviews come from but to each their own. My wife and I have lived in Oakland for the past 3 years and eat here at least once a month. We have gotten everything from the BBQ sandwich to the BBQ baked potato and nothing has ever been bad. The banana pudding is also wonderful. We always use the drive thru so never really had a service problem. If you are in Oakland this place is not as bad as the bad reviews.

Just plain AWFUL food. Nothing and I mean nothing, is any good. If this place was located in Memphis, it's doors would have already been closed. It's the only bbq gig in Oakland and that about explains it. We moved to Oakland over the past year and have tried Brads 3 times. As they say, the 3rd time is the charm. We will not waste another dime here. Save your money and buy Corky's "frozen" bbq at Kroger.
