Stay away from Rendezvous!!!
We tried it based on everyone telling us it's the best ribs ever.
I have 10 year old shoes that are more tender and taste better in my closet!!

While staying at the Peabody we would go the the concierge floor for coffee and a snack in the mornings. A very nice older gentleman would greet us and asked what our daily plans are and if he could help us with local fare. We would ask where to go for great Q and Ribs. He mention to us Blues City Cafe. "It is where us locals go for Ribs"
And then we would go somewhere else that we were told about. One night we went to Rendezvous, just down the ally. It was the worst ribs ever!!. Next morning he asked how we were and did we have a good evening. I replied about our experience and he replied with a smile "Locals don't go there much any more, mostly tourists." "You may want to try the Blues City Cafe!"
And yet again I did not listen and went to BB Kings place. We walked in and the music was at about 110 db. No one to seat us. Looked to the right and a couple was leaving so we seated ourselves. After about 20 minutes a waitress asked if the Hostess had seated us. I said what Hostess, no one was at the door when we came in and we just grabbed the open table. We were then told we had to get up and go back to the door and wait to be seated. I said no I don't and we left.
As we were leaving I looked directly across Beale St and there was The Blues City Cafe!! We walked to the door and we were seated. While walking in I noticed what was on everyone's plates. Nothing but bones, Rib Bones!! Clean picked and piled up. Best damn ribs I have ever had from a restaurant!!
Next morning as we greeted the gentleman he asked and we told him of out experience.
He said, yes sir like I was saying "It's were we locals go for Ribs!"
Silly me for not taking his advice!
