About this place
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.

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…
