5 Must-Try BBQ Joints – Memphis, TN

Bed and Breakfast Inns Online came out with their list of 5 must-try Memphis BBQ Joints.

They weren’t necessarily swinging for the fences when they came up with this list. I think they went tried and true, but didn’t go outside the box. Also I feel (I know) they’ve missed some pretty important ones.

    3. Interstate BBQ
    4. Tops BBQ several locations. known for their sandwichs
    5 Cozy Corner

    Rendevous is an overrated sham that is “Popular” because they are expensive, and it is in the shadow of the peabody hotel. ITs where the visitors go to eat…3 blocks away at blues city cafe,you get real food and real atmosphere, go later on a sunday and catch Freeworld in the bandstand afterwards. Great band thats been playing there for 15 yrs or more every sunday.
