A place that charges $50.00 for a platter for four should at least give you real dishes and cutlery. Paper plates and plastic knives to cut ribs was not appreciated. Ribs had a distinctive wood smoked flavour. Since this was our first time eating memphis style BBQ, I was not very impresses. Texas BBQ is much tastier. They advertise that the ribs have been cooking all night, and if that were the case the meat should have been more tender, and less chewy. Pulled pork was good.

This place has fantastic bar-b-q. Got the meal the feast for 4 with plenty of food. Ribs and pulled pork were great. All the sides were excellent. Everybody goes on about the Rendezvous but this place challenges their ribs and the side win.

Landed on Beale and was looking for some good BBQ. Loved the name so thought I would give it a try. The waitress recommended ribs and glad I did. Awesome. Loved the vibe, good price and great service

First time on Beale St so when they said come on in best bbq in the country we thought Hell yeah!! Let's get our BBQ on.... there were 3 of us ordered pulled pork and 1 ordered ribs. It was good but I wouldn't say "the Best". The staff were super friendly...and the "big ass beers" were of course good but all in all good enough to go back....we'll probably try some other bbq places next time through. I would recommend going as it wan't at all "bad", good food, just expected a little better!
