Lunch in Memphis

I'm in Memphis a few days for buisness. Before I left I asked a TN native for the name of a good BBQ place. Without hesitation he suggested Rendezvous - then quickly added - it's great food but a terrible neighborhood. After walking down an alley worthy of South Central LA. We walked into the restaurant and walked into their basement. The lady at the desk said that they were closed, but if we wanted ribs we could eat.

We wanted ribs, so we did eat. And how we ate. Best ribs I've had: great dry rub, cooked over oak charcoal. Other than the don't-go-there-after-dark neighborhood, it was perfect.

If I'm in Memphis with the family in the future, I'd bring them here.
