After several national media appearances and having won the Memphis “Best of BBQ” title, Neely’s opened its third location in March 2001, this one in Nashville. Neely’s has since been voted number one ribs in Nashville as well, and has become known as a powerhouse of BBQ throughout the state of Tennessee.
Following several appearances on Food Network, Pat and Gina debuted their own cooking show on the network in February 2008. Down Home with the Neelys became the highest-rated series debut in the five-year history of Food Network's “In the Kitchen” weekend block. Fans of the Neelys can now enjoy Down Home with the Neelys seven days a week, and the show continues to be a top ratings performer.
