Hi everybody!

Me and the sweetie just got back from Memphis. We stayed in the Hampton Suites on Beale Street. We had a great time!

This me in front of the Pig restaurant... if you really like "Pork Jerky" then this is the place for you! The ribs were dry, unseasoned, chewey and tough! If you have any worst enemies you would like to get even with, don't bring them here! This place would be cruel and unusual punishment and not even your enemies deserve that!

This is my sweetie in front of B.B. Kings joint. The ribs were likely par-boiled and grilled, but they had a good rub and they did not taste bad at all.

After two disappointing rib attempts, me and Robin decided to give Hooters a shot - guess what? It was great!!! :lol:

Well, anyway, I got to spend some quality time with my wife and that could not go wrong. Other than the ribs, Memphis is a wonderful place. Next time we go we are going to try the Rendevous and Corkys - we just did not want to risk another 30-40 dollar disappointment this trip.

Next time you go you will have to go to Central BBQ. It is awesome. The BBQ Shop is also very good. Interstate BBQ is also good.

Here is a link for a recap of my Memphis trip:

My daughter went to Rhodes College in Memphis and I would go there often and visit. When I did I would eat Dry Ribs and party on Beale Street. I had my own seat in the Rum Boogy Cafe on the corner of the Square.
AH, BBQ, Blues and flowin' Whiskey!!!!!!!
Great place to visit. Glad you had a good time.

Sorry that the rib experience in Memphis was a disappointment, Tony! I was in Memphis a couple of years ago and had a good pulled pork sammie at Corky's but didn't try the ribs.

BTW, I'm going to move this thread to Brethren Road Trips.
