Fodor's Go List 2018

Insider Tip: While there tends to be some debate about who serves up the best Memphis BBQ, you really can’t go wrong with Corky’s BBQ or Charlie Vergo’s Rendezvous downtown. Another perennially popular spot, The Bar-B-Q Shop (originally Brady & Lil’s Bar-B-Q Restaurant) on Madison Avenue is known to serve up some of the best BBQ ribs, tips, and coleslaw in town. While there’s nothing fancy about this spot, its cozy atmosphere and award-winning rubs have kept the local clientele coming back year after year.
