THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Beale Street Barbeque Restaurant Review

: According to the backs of the staff’s T-shirts, Beale Street Barbeque has customers “because it’s a long way to Memphis.” If that seems like a paltry excuse to come here, well, it is. Though the flagship at 215 Water Street in Bath isn’t particularly picturesque, the large South Portland branch is even less attractive, its retro architecture lacking any nostalgic charm. Step inside and you’ll find food to match: the slow-cooked meats are mostly slathered in a too-sweet sauce, accompanied by standard sides of cornbread, beans and coleslaw. Big portions are the real draw; a $15 sampler guarantees you get a lot for your money, but not that any of it will be very good.
