I taking a 3 day pilgrimage to Memphis next week. I have the Rondevous, Jim Neely's Interstate and Leonard's on my list.

Did I miss any that I "must" visit?
Life's too short to eat bland food.

I'm not a Memphis expert, but I guess you would have to add Corky's to your list, and I would highly recommend the ribs at Blues City Cafe on Beale Street. It's not one of the more famous joint, but I think their ribs are out of this world. Hope you have a good trip.

1cajuncook, Wish I could ride along with you. Maybe you could get some "to go" orders to drop off on your way back. I'm right off I-575.
While your there, check out a band that plays at Elvis Presley's Memphis on Beale st. They're called the Dempseys and they put on one of the best shows you'll ever see.

Glad to have another Atlanta neighbor. Welcome to the group.

Welcome to the board 1cajuncook,
I hope you’ll have a good trip. As Vinsect stated, it’s good to have another Atlanta member in the group.

Well, I just got back from my 3 day trip!! I did eat at Rondevous, very good! We also ate at Neeley's, which I don't think there is any relation to Jim Neely's. It was excelent, little better than Rondevous. We tried to go to The BBQ Shop, but they were on vacation for two weeks, and we tried to find Corkeys, but couldn't. We had a real good trip!!

And, met Stump Mitchell in the hotel lounge where we stayed!
