BBQ Restaurants In The Mid-South: Let’s Make A List
Ah, Memphis Barbecue. Here in this part of the country, we’re surrounded by a mouth-watering meat tornado of smoky goodness, scrumptious sauces, and plenty of slaw to go around…and we love it.
In the 11 years I’ve lived here, I’ve often heard that there are upwards of 100 bbq joints in the area, but let’s be real. I’ve found a few long lists out there, but we mostly only hear about a handful of restaurants.
In our quest to share our BBQ mastery with the world, it’s easy to focus on the favorites, but what if…
What if together make a huge list?
Let’s see how many BBQ restaurants in the area we can find.
The criteria for adding to the list is that:
- The restaurant must be BBQ focused, not just have 1 or 2 bbq items on the menu.*
- It should be Memphis, Shelby County, North MS, West Memphis, edging over into Middle Tennessee is fine, etc.
- You must include an address or phone number and/or website or Facebook page link in order for your comment to be approved. It’s going to be hard for me to find “John’s BBQ shack” without any other information. Bonus points if you tell me why you like it, or some other unique fact.
- Food trucks count, as long as they have an online presence of some kind that allows people to find out where they are.
Full disclosure: I’ll probably use this list as a starting point for articles and lists on this site or this site. So, while you’re definitely helping me out by adding a comment, this is also a chance for your favorite to be included as we spread the news about Memphis BBQ around the world.
So let’s do it. Perfectly-seasoned racks of ribs, tasty bbq spaghetti dishes, pulled pork sandwiches, cheese-laden nachos, and other smoked and slathered delicacies we can list in this here comment section.
It just might be the best comment section ever.
