My daughter was recruited by an alphabet LEO agency when she graduated from Rice last May. After undergoing the background, she has learned that her duty station will be Memphis, TN, where she will start he career as an intel analyst. Anyone on the GS have any suggestions on where the best rib place is in Memphis. I don't have much time, as We are going up Saturday morning and coming home Sunday, so was hoping to have something in mind before we got there, so we won't be having to do a lot of searching.

To hell with ribs. You go find Gus's Famous Fried Chicken and you will thank me for the rest of your life.



For good ribs though...check out Marlowe's.

True story....Jen and I saw Gus's Famous Fried Chicken on the Food Network one saturday morning as we lay in our bed in Porter, TX. About 10 hours later, we ate at Gus's that night in Memphis. I'm a fool for some good yard bird.

This is the truth. Most of my family lives about an hour northeast of Memphis. I stop there every time we visit.

You have piqued my interest. I googled it and found they have a location in Austin and Ft. Worth. May be worth a road trip

Find BBQ in Memphis. Hit one of the big name places and take a walk down Beale on Saturday night. Hit Gus' in Little Rock on your way back south.

I some what agree with you, especially when it comes to the touristy restaurants like Rendevous and some of the others. When we were there last July I asked the bell hop at the hotel what the best was and for the life of me I can not remember the name but it was GOOD. It was just local dive joint. If I can think of it, I'll edit my post.

For a second I thought you were Burntorange Bowhunter. Where is Bob when you need BBQ advise?
Also if you get a chance. Try the gumbo cheese fries down on Beal street. Unreal.

Also, try Dyer's Burgers on Beale street. Haven't changed their grease since 1912...just strain it everyday. Their burgers are amazing. When they changed locations, the Memphis PD provided a police escort to move the grease to the new location.

Had a Dyer's burger a couple weeks ago when we went over there for the farm show. I can't look at that grease pan, but the grub isn't bad at all.

Well, business is really, really good if you are in Memphis and have a career in LE. Trust me, she won't be bored... at some point you may hear some of the best stories in your life from her! Sorry to shift gears on the thread

I second the fried chicken. I had ribs at two different must see places and I should have went back for more chicken.

I've been working in Memphis for a little over a year now off and on. I will be praying for your daughter. The crime is really bad.
Back to food. I haven't had any great BBQ and I've tried all the big name places. Gus's is consistently good. Also a place called Soul Fish that I really like.
