    Re: Best Eats in Memphis (so far)

    Best western breakfast this morning, totally worth the drive from Iowa!

    Tops BBQ was good. I remember some food show going there. The ladies working liked to yell at people, it was awesome! If you stop, leave a tip and they will treat you right.

    Re: Best Eats in Memphis (so far)

    Ate at Blue's City Cafe last night, and the ribs were not my favorite. I liked the ribs at Pig better. Had lunch at Uncle Lou's fried chicken and it was great! Corrupted carrots (basically deep fried carrots with some spice) were good, but the biscuits were the best "side". The chicken was great, especially the "sweet/spicy love" sauce.

    We had rendevous for dinner and it was pretty great. Then we got Pig for drunk food. It might have been the alcohol but the chicken at Pig was aaaaamazing. Both rendevous and pig were freaking delicious but if pressed I think I liked rendevous ribs more though.

    Re: Best Eats in Memphis (so far)

    Huey's was very good and I highly recommend it if you're looking for a change of pace from bbq. Very inexpensive.

    So far I've felt Memphis bbq hasn't lived up to the hype (tried Corky's and Central). Not bad but nothing better than Iowa. Might give the Commissary a shot tonight.

    Had breakfast at The Blue Plate. You won't leave hungry that's for sure. Great biscuits and gravy.

    Huey's was pretty damn good last night. Live music was OK and the onion rings were ginormous and awesome.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Worst good was Tops BBQ, we went there after the game, close to the stadium.
    All in all, great food and beer thru out town.

    Had to wait for about 2.5 hours to eat at Corky's last night. Food was delicious though.

    Ribs at Central really good.
    Ribs at B.B. Kings good, bread pudding very good, fried pickles and catfish very good, bands excellent.
    Breakfast at the Graceland cafe (only because we had a 3 hour wait to get in) not good.
    Local Ghost River beer, good stuff.

    Re: Best Eats in Memphis (so far)

    Gus' chicken was excellent. fried green tomatoes, also excellent.
    Johnny G's potato salad and greens are probably some of the best side dishes I've ever ate
    One of the teams from the BBQ competition at the stadium let us try a beef tenderloin they had made. don't know if I've had a piece of meat with a flavor that unique/delicious before.

    I honestly don't think i had a bad meal the entire time in memphis. I would go there again just to eat
