Omg, I think these were my favorite ribs in Memphis. I know that they’re not Memphis style, but they were the most flavorful and juicy of all the ribs I tried. The rub that they use is frickin’ delicious! It was very herbaceous and had so many spices. NOMS! The brisket was good too, but the ribs were the star. I liked the baked beans, but the slaw was too vinegar-y for my taste.

I kept hearing that the chicken here was really good, and I’ll have to agree. The fried chicken was crispy, juicy, and very flavorful. With a little bit of hot sauce splashed on, I couldn’t eaten a few additional pieces, hehe!

Mmm, I love the beef brisket at Mephis Minnie’s! It’s super tender and very flavorful. I will admit that some of the pieces were on the dry side this time around. They certainly put plenty of brisket in this sandwich. Noms!
