Hmm, this wasn’t very good. The ribs had a weird texture and so did the chicken for that matter. The bbq sauce wasn’t very good either. Lame.

I think I liked the Cajun fries better than the ribs. The Cajun seasoning on the fries was great. Unfortunately, the ribs were kinda dry and there wasn’t much meat on them.

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.

Germantown Commissary, Memphis TN

This was my first Memphis style bbq experience in Memphis and I was not impressed. The pork ribs were SO dry! The pulled shoulder was less dry, but still on the dry side. I had to douse them with plenty of bbq sauce to make them more palatable. The service was also kinda rude and inattentive. Not a great start for my trip!
