Has The Best

Where is the Best BBQ in Memphis?

Payne's Bar-B-Que

Some might call this place run down, others will say this is what a real BBQ place looks like. You won't find any better in Memphis, or probably the world. The thing to get is the chopped pork sandwich. Save some room for pie...try.

Central BBQ

Housed in an old Red Lobster building (what?) they cook some of the best ribs you'll find anywhere.

2249 Central Ave. Memphis, TN (Map)
Cozy Corner

The name doesn't really suggest great BBQ, but this place is legit. What do you get here? Ribs? Nope, cornish game hen. It sounds insane, but your jaw will drop when you try one of these things.

Charlie Vergos' Rendezvous

Yes, it's a bit touristy, but Charlie is still one of the best places to get ribs in the city.

Jim Neely's Interstate BBQ

You know the last name from the Food Network show, and this place is worth checking out, though go to the places above first.
