“The Rendezvous is the most famous BBQ restaurant in the city. A lot of Memphians like to hate on it because it's "popular". Don't listen to the haters. This place is fantastic. The food, the ambiance, and location can't be beat. Obviously you'll order ribs but I'd also HIGHLY recommend the Lamb Riblets and Sausage & Cheese plate. ”

“The Majestic Grille has the best of both brunch worlds, with equal style and substance. Enjoy live music on the mezzanine of the 1920s Art Deco theatre while sipping a carafe of mimosas and noshing on veggie frittatas. Or saddle up to bar to watch football and tear into a rib eye Steak & Eggs served with potatoes, biscuits, and a Bloody Mary.”
