The barbecue is decent, but the cakes are a hit.

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bywater BBQ Restaurant Review

: While Bywater BBQ’s fare may not win prizes in a Memphis or Austin barbecue competition, it can appeal if you’re longing for smoked meat. Pulled pork, chicken and ribs come dripping with a sweet red sauce marinade that's a close relative of ketchup, so you might ask for sauce on the side if you’re a purist. Sides include garden-variety coleslaw, beans and greens. The pizza is completely forgettable, but the desserts are not: multi-layered home-baked red velvet cakes and German chocolate cakes taste as good as they look. This is brew fare, so grab a cold one to go with your meal. Weekend brunches feature imaginative omelets and quiches. Somewhat incongruous to barbecue, the restaurant is housed in an old, colorfully decorated townhouse complete with a small, lush, practically hidden garden patio.
