    Re: Best Eats in Memphis (so far)

    Went to Soul Fish Cafe near the stadium for lunch before the game. Outstanding catfish, and the mashed potatoes were a dream. The hush puppies were excellent, too, and I'm not a big fan of hush puppies.

    Corky's was the best BBQ. Went to Central's....wasn't horrendous, but the brisket was a bit tough, and I think the slaw was more of a vinegar base.

    Re: Best Eats in Memphis (so far)

    After going to Memphis I would have to say Corky's was the best BBQ.

    Rendezvous probably had the atmosphere with it being a BBQ dive and located in an alley.

    Hueys (downtown) had the best burger and a really cool atmosphere.

    Also Germantown Commissary was good as well. Went there before the game and it was pretty good.

    Big fan of The Commissary. Thanks to whomever on this board that gave it props or I wouldn't have known about it. Particularly loved the ribs and slaw, but it was all good.

    Re: Best Eats in Memphis (so far)

    another vote for the Commisary. good stuff

    had Central BBQ at their tailgate vendor trailer and loved their slaw but it was egg based. weird but good


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Count me in as a fan of the Commissary as well - if you are ever in Germantown, TN you should absolutely check it out.

    Got gas in Blytheville on way down, distinct odor of hemp. Another dude filling up while smoking a regular cigarette also. Nice.

    I had red beans and rice at the Rum Boogie Cafe with a beer. Wonderful meal. Central BBQ near the Tn campus had good brisket on Saturday night. Saw some real dives in town when my brother took a wrong turn and asked his Tom Tom for reroute.

    Agreed! We stopped at Gus's before we left and it lived up to the hype.

    Those can be some of the best places. I saw one called "Momma's Soulfood" that probably would have been great.
