Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Quantity but not quality. They have a to go charge fee of 10% and of course they don't tell you that when you order. REALLY.

Our family stopped for a quick bite while traveling. The food was delicious! Service was friendly and fast. We ate outside. Although there was some trash in the grass along the side of parking lot, we would definitely come here again. Tacos and ribs are amazing and potato salad was yummy!

I use to love this place. The fish taco's were so good and filing. Well this day I took my grandkids to lunch since were in the area. I had a taste for a fish taco, my oldest granddaughter ordered a sandwich and the youngest ordered a cheese pizza. We went to pick the food up and my my youngest granddaughter ( bless her heart no filter on that mouth). she saw a roach on the wall. she spoke so loud I had to look at the the wall and saw it as though it was picking up an order as well. The guy behind the couldn't say anything but said he was sorry. At that point I was done! Lost this customer:( Not a clean place anymore. Sorry guys...

new location at 4040 Park Ave. (no listing here on TripAdvisor so doing it here) Was so glad to see that there was a location other than Summer, which is good but never felt quite comfortable there due to multiple factors of parking, temperature, size, flow, etc. This location on Park Ave. now solves it all. Elwood’s is a fast casual where you order at the desk and they bring the food to your table. The menu at both locations is extensive and I nor my friends have ever had anything that we did not like. I am a particular fan of the tacos, which are not like tacos I have had anywhere else ever. They are flour tortillas that are crisped with cheese, but not hard, and just loaded with meat vegetables and a great sauce. Often I can’t finish it because of the size. Other highlights my group had were the amazing debris sandwich, the Ruben, the chicken Philly and of course the BBQ. A unique nontraditional sodas selection (no coke or Pepsi) is really tasty. Good potato salad. Elwood’s is just a great sandwich shop that everyone living in or visiting Memphis should experience.

This is a gem. Had the K.C. Candy sandwich and it did not disappoint. Everything looks good when it comes out. I will return for something else if I'm ever in the neighborhood. I wish we had one of these at home!

Yes it’s hidden on the side of the Lowe’s parking lot but definitely stop. Surprisingly large selection of barbecue and grill items plus specialty sandwiches. Friendly staff. Average prices for good portions. Small seating area inside plus picnic tables outside. I’d go back.

Driven by this place many times and didn’t know it existed. It’s next to Lowe’s and kinda hidden. Upon entering was greeted by smiling employees and the smell of fresh BBQ was definitely in the air. I ordered the two meat combo. Brisket and wings. The brisket was really good and the wings were also good…yes, the skin was crispy too… Overall the food, service, and price was good. Definitely come hungry or be prepared to share.

I would have never found this incredible place without Trip Advisor. We walked into the shack and the smoke was incredible, so was the smell. I had the best BBQ Chicken sandwich I have ever had. This place is so worth finding and experiencing.

I ordered the Debris sandwich, because it had won best sandwich in our local paper. They gave my sandwich to the wrong person to start. They did remake it though. The sandwich is ok at best, and I hope it is not the best item on menu. The sandwich was actually the most expensive of their sandwiches too. No sides with it either. The service was fast and friendly though. I will order something different next time.

It’s more expensive than I expected for this area. Park in the Lowes parking lot. The food is good. The fish taco, 1 for $9, was excellent. The Cole slaw is made with blue cheese.
