I've been dining at Paynes for 30 years and I crave it . I regularly eat BBQ all over town and no one has better. Ms Flora's hands and talent are essential elements of this magic. BBQ in its own class. I must admit its inconsistent -occasionally off a bit- but never off by far. Best eats: Jumbo, sliced,(with a little of the crispy outer layer of the shoulder included) "hot" sandwich, or BBQ bologna , also "hot".
I love eating at Paynes( Lamar near McLean)- it is a major dive but I wouldn't change one thing about this remodeled old gas station. To me its sacred. If you don't like paynes you should stay in east Memphis.
