“Unbelievable great BBQ. You must stop here”
Heard about this place, and had to run down from Chicago to St. Louis to pick up a piece of equipment for work... stopped here for lunch. This place is Awesome. i have been to Memphis at some of the best (wrote some personal reviews for tripadvisor). This place is now my favorite. Walked in (busy) got up to order. Told the guy "We've heard about you... set us up). he said no problem. Had the Full Rack, one of us with a size of their Thin slice prime rib and onions, the other with their Pastrami.... and bbq beans and potato salad... Ate outside in November! (Crazy warm in St. Louis for the day). What can I say.... Ribs were perfect... their rub without even adding sauce was fantastic. Meaty, perfect balance of lean/smoke/meaty. This sides of meat were PERFECT. Beans... most excellent, potato salad... average. This place is VERY VERY small.. walk up service (no table service), and it was able to handle so many people because of the nice weather and picnic tables outside. STOP HERE. EAT HERE. most likely CARRY OUT HERE. ... No cheap.... premium price of you ask me but 100% worth it. 2 full slab lunches with drinks, sampling of the meat sides, potato salad, and beans... $60. Other warning: No booze... just soft drinks. Side note: After eating, brought some home for the reverse trip for the wife.... Stopped by a great Irish bar just 1 block west for a beer. The bartender tried to steal the to go bag. Walked in, sat at the bar. She said "Bogarts", I said yes, she grabbed it and put it behind the bar.... LOL.
