Bland pork sandwiches that had no smokey flavor... Watery bbq sauce... Beans fresh out of the can without any alterations... With loads of flies... At least the pork wasn't dry... Even though you may see her on TV don't be fooled by the hype not a place worth traveling to.

Bland meat. The hot bbq sauce was not even close to being hot. Family reunion dinner was a huge disappointment. We're NEVER going back!

Best barbecue in West Tennessee. Miss Helen waits on customers personally. The potato salad is very good too!

Love Helen's BBQ. I am willing to drive over an hour to get here, and stop in whenever I get a chance.

I've had pulled pork in dozens of places in Austin, DFW, Memphis and north Alabama, heck even London, and this is the best I've found by a significant margin, especially at this price!

Literally the best bbq I have ever had. Her sauce, let me tell you, just go ahead and buy yourself a whole jar of it, I'm pretty sure she even sells it by the gallon. You'll find yourself dipping chicken nuggets in it eventually, like Frank's, Helen's sauce goes on Anything. THE BEST BBQ SAUCE EVER!

I had the pleasure of visiting Ms Helen’s establishment last year. Drove over an hour from Memphis and was totally worth it. The sandwich was amazing and Ms Helen was lovey, even allowing me to make a few portraits of her after lunch. Her story and food are amazing. Thanks Ms Helen.

Helen's Bar BQ has an amaizing flavor. It is a small cosy place with a great food.

I drive once a month from Memphis, to get her barbecue. It's better than anything in Memphis

So far me and my husband have tried their polish sausages, bologna sandwiches, nachos and pull pork and it was amazing . the only thing I had a issue with was I forgot to bring cash. Cause I use my card but she allowed us to go to atm near by and come back .

If you want good, home cooked BBQ definitely try Helen's. The cole slaw and BBQ sauce were great, also. Definitely a place you want to pick-up and go vs.dine in!

Great bbq. Couldn't decide which sandwich to get, so got the Bologna/Pork sandwich AND the pulled pork sandwich, Hot on both. Excellent taste,excellent sauce. Highly recommend!

Helen wants you to feel like home. Food is good, people are great. If people travel miles and miles just to eat Helen's food, then that should tell you something. She's 100% worth it. Bring cash, she doesn't do card.

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch and ordered 2 large BBQ sandwiches and couldn't have asked for a better BBQ sandwich. It may look like just a little hole in the wall place but you will not be disappointed! The people were extremely friendly. I loved it and will definitely come back when I come back threw. Absolutely recommend.

Love the food and the service can't be beat. Best food I have ate

Possibly the best BBQ sandwich I've ever had. Great spot, got to meet Helen while I was there. Yelp wants me to keep writing more so I can post this as a review so I'm just padding it out due to the yelps stupid policy

One star because the cleanliness. The barbecue is great however, They don't use gloves. They scratch their heads then stick their hands right back into the barbecue that they're feeding people.

I have left very favorable reviews for Helen's in the past, but I have a bone to pick with Miss Helen. Last time I was in I bought four pounds of pork for my freezer. 1 pound from almost anywhere makes four gracious sandwiches. Not this time! I noticed it seemed skimpy when I packaged it for the freezer, and now that I am using it I see that I was right. Now I'm lucky to get two good and one slight sandwiches per "pound." This isn't right if it was intentional. Just raise the price, don't give less than a pound. Or maybe it's time to have the scale calibrated, either way it seems dishonest. I don't like thinking it might be deliberate.

We had read a lot of outstanding reviews about this place, so we decided to try it. First of all, the place is a very run down cracker box, totaling 2 tables and six chairs in all. The lady behind the counter (I think it was Helen from the pictures we saw on the wall) was very nice. We ordered a barbque sandwich and beans. The meat had no smoked flavor at all and the wattery bbq sauce was sugary sweet. The beans tasted like they were poured out of a can and heated up. This will be our one and only trip to this restaurant. It baffles me how this place has many great reviews from well known sources!! I recommend The Barbque Shop on Madison in Memphis if you want great Barbque

Helen's BBQ is a historical place in Brownsville TN (Interstate 40, exit 66, Washington St). BBQ bologna, smoked shoulder, ribs and chicken -- all grilled by Ms. Helen! Stop by; she'll feed you good!

Delicious food and good prices

This is the best bbq in west Tennessee. She has ribs and bbq'd bologna as well as baked beans and cole slaw. You can special order other items with advanced notice. I got a hickory smoked turkey last year for Thanksgiving.
