The Rendezvous has been serving ribs in a downtown Memphis alley since 1948. It has been owned and operated by the Vergos family for three generations. If you want to eat like a local Memphian, start with a pitcher of beer & cheese/sausage plate and soak in the atmosphere.
everything is awesome
The ribs! The pork shoulder! Must get the sausage and cheese platter for your app! Everything is Devine!
Good bbq but not as good as Corky's
Get the dry ribs! Small plate is half a rack. Beans and slaw is also amazing!!
Ribs are awesome. Brisket is delish!
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.
One word.... Ribs
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.
Its legendary. Its the ultimate dry rub destination.
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.
Go for a full order.
They should have trademarked 'finger-lickin good'!
I always start with a cheese and sausage plate, they put their famous rub on the sausage
Ribs, Ribs, Ribs
The dry-rub ribs are the best anywhere.
Great ribs & brisket!!!!
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!
Get the ribs. The coleslaw is on the spicier side.

All you need to know is...RIBS
Dry rub ribs!
Ribs, pork shoulder and brisket are awesome
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.
Best ribs in Memphis! Get them dry!
If you like BBQ, a must, if you don't, it's overhyped.
Get the ribs and brisket
You can't wait anywhere for a table even outside. You called on a speaker. Ribs and sausage so good
You can't beat the food best place in town
Go with the brisket. Leave the ribs!
Despite the location in a dark alley and the name, it's actually not a gentleman's club, they serve BBQ.
9000 lbs of ribs a week. You can't go wrong with this rib joint
Great rub on ribs so dry I couldn't eat them. Better BBQ in New England. Go once just to say you did and then never go back.
Sit at the bar if you're dining alone. Good conversationalists.
You can smell it from blocks away. That's not a bad thing.
Preorder the Shrimp!
Go early and plan on waiting for an hour for a table. You'll have plenty of time to grab a couple beers while you wait.
Love it here, great food, delicious dry rub.
Far from Memphis' best! There are smaller places in the city that smash Rendezvous. The meat is absolutely boring without saucing it and the sauce is well, to cinnamony. The waiter was top notch!
