Pork ribs and brisket combination – Charles Vergos’ Rendezvous

Pork ribs and brisket combination - Charles Vergos' Rendezvous
World-famous Rendezvous charcoal-broiled pork ribs, beef brisket, served with beans and slaw. $21.95
Charles Vergos’ Rendezvous, Memphis TN

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 loved the flavors of these tacos especially the cilantro cream. The beef brisket was a bit dry though and I wished the tortillas were warmed up.

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!

Roadside BBQ, San Rafael CA

Mmm, this sandwich was delicious! The brisket was tender, flavorful, and had a nice smokey flavor. It was also great with the slaw on top. I think the bun was a little on the thick side – I like less bun for bbq. The baked beans were very tasty.

Mmm, this combo plate was delicious! It’s a bit pricy for a food stand at lunch, but the meats are certainly quality. I was really surprised at how tender and smoky the chicken was. It almost looked undercooked, but it was so juicy and perfect. The brisket and spare ribs were also super tasty. Noms!

Certified black angus beef brisket – Baby Blues BBQ

Certified black angus beef brisket - Baby Blues BBQ
1 pound $19.75
Baby Blues BBQ, San Francisco CA

I was SO disappointed when I opened the to-go bag and found this tiny container of meat that cost me twenty bucks! But one pound of beef is actually a lot of food – it just looked deceivingly small in the container. The brisket was good, but I’m still not convinced that it should cost so much.
