    Go classic and don't add too much sauce.

    Incredible ribs and beef brisket. Don't leave Memphis without trying the famous charcoal dry-rub ribs, and try the brisket if you prefer saucy BBQ

    Ribs and sweet beans

    I believe that the Rendezvous has the best rib in the entire world. I like them so much, I ate there two night in a row. I'd travel at least 100 of miles out of my way to eat there if I was traveling.

    I still prefer Central or Payne's BBQ. Very friendly staff, excellent ribs, and one of the few places to have mustard slaw. Being downtown it does tend to cater to the touristy crowd.

    If you don't try the ribs, you are wasting your time there. Their dry rub is delicious and the ribs are tender with a little but of crispiness.

    There are better BBQ joints in this awesome BBQ city. If you find yourself here, get the lamb ribs or bring a group (a call ahead) for the BBQ shrimp

    If you have to wait for a seat, go upstairs and grab a pitcher and chill out, it's worth the wait.

    Oh yea. You have to dig the ribs and sausage cheese platter. Great place to have BBQ in Memphis.

    Disappointed. Love dry rub ribs but these were apparently just a bad batch. Super dry, no meat, no flavor. Pork was SUPERB!! Server "THE Mr Calvin" was outstanding!! Too $$$

    Tourist trap with equally touristy dry-rub ribs. Lots of history as is evident on the walls tho.

    If you favor dry rub ribs, it's worth experiencing the unique ambiance of this place. Otherwise, there's far better BBQ to be found at Bar-B-Q Shop and Central BBQ.

    Avoid this touristy, overrated resto, as there is far better BBQ to be found in MEM. My personal favorites are BBQ Shop on Madison Avenue and Central BBQ.

    It was good, but the ribs were a little dry. I prefer Corky's.

    Thrillist Top BBQ List: go to this eclectic, awesome resto, and eat all that history in rib form. "What you're getting: Large order of the charcoal-broiled pork ribs, & sausage and cheese appetizer"

    The ribs were ok, honestly my husbands are better. But the brisket! Oh, my! The best I've ever had! Also, get the cheese and sausage plate & red beans & rice to share!

    Memphis classic. Get the dry rub rack of ribs. I promise you won't regret it.

    Grabbed a Ghost River beer while waiting for our table. Good Memphis style ribs- seasoned well and very meaty. Potato Salad, Sweet Tea, and Baked Beans were off the chain!

    Cheese and sausage plate were great. Ribs were okay, but not my cup of tea. Glad I can say I tried them, but won't be back.

    Greek Salad with chicken is amazing!! The chicken is beyond flavorful and the homemade dressing tastes as good (if not better) than what I had in Greece.

    The ribs are pretty good. Don't get me wrong, I'd order them again, but they're a bit overhyped after reading all the other tips.

    I've heard the ribs aren't cooked from start to finish at the original location any more... But they're still damned fine.

    I've eaten plenty of great ribs at the MIM BBQ Festival. These are not my favorite. I absolutely love their BBQ Nachos. Red Beans & Rice are fantastic as well!

    For any BBQ enthusiast, it's worth making the pilgrimage. Get the ribs, since that's what they're famous for. Also try the cheese plate, sprinkled with their special seasoning.
