The menu features all the classics, including pulled pork, ribs, and chicken. But if you’re feeling adventurous, order one of their brisket chili cheese fries. You won’t be disappointed.

Mission BBQ is a relative newcomer to the Murfreesboro scene, but it’s already made a big splash. The restaurant has a patriotic theme, and all of the profits go to support veterans and first responders. At noon every day the restaurant stops and sings the national anthem. It’s a great experience to share with your family. As for the food, the pulled pork is excellent, but be sure to try one of their signature like the Black Plate special or the Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich. You won’t be disappointed.

Smokin’ Buttz BBQ

Smokin’ Buttz is actually a food truck that serves some of the most beloved barbecue in Murfreeboro. The pulled pork here is some of the best we’ve ever had, and it comes with your choice of two sides. We recommend pairing it with the macaroni and cheese or the collard greens. And don’t forget to try one of their delicious desserts like the peach cobbler or sweet potato pie. It’ll be hard to resist seconds (or thirds)!

Slick Pig BBQ

1920 E Main St, Murfreesboro, TN 37130

Slick Pig has been serving up barbecued goodness since 1995, so they know a thing or two about good barbecue! The pulled pork sandwich combos are our favorite here – they come with a drink and your choice of side for just $6.50. (Don’t sleep on their fruit tea) And be sure to save room for dessert! The coconut cake is out-of-this-world good!
