We love this place. Whenever we travel and are passing through Memphis TN, this is our favorite BBQ spot. Love the food and decor. Not some hipster, groovy, yuppie, fusion place. Just great food. They even have banana pudding!!

Since we were visiting Memphis for the first time, I wanted some number 1 BBQ. I took some recommendations from folks I know who live/lived here and this was my first BBQ stop. Got the slab of ribs that were superb-I used no sauce and...More
