Nothing better on Beale? I thought Beale Street was a meca for BBQ.

THE ONLY place you should stop at is Charlie Vergo's Rendevous smokehouse. It's just off Beale in a side alley next to a hotel...can't remember which one. Just ask any local...they all know. It's walking distance from Beale.

I've tried every one of them and was very underwhelmed EXCEPT for Rendevous' charcoal ribs.

Renezvous is actually in an alley off of Union rather than Beale. Go to the Holiday Inn on Union (across from the Peabody) and take the alley next to the valet check-in. You'll see the sign there.

Rum Boogie Cafe was decent, Pork with Attitude was horrible, BB King Blues Cafe was very average. Neely's Interstate BBQ was not bad but none of them touch Charlie Vergo.

If you go to Rendezvous, be sure to ask for some of their world-famous french fries.

I don't think you find the best ribs in Memphis on Beale. But if I had to choose one of those places, then Blues City Cafe right on the corner of Beale is excellent.

I like the BBQ Shop the most for ribs. It is in Midtown on madison right on McLean.

If you want to atmosphere, go to Rendevous. If you want good ribs, go to Corky's. Lived there for 4 yrs and have eaten at both a number of times.

If you want to stay on beale street, i like rum boogie cafe. The ribs are decent. Downtown, I would definitely say Rendezvous. Away from downtown, Tops BBQ is where its at.

Rendevous right off beale. Get some brisket while you're at it and get extra of the mustard based coleslaw

Not impressed with rendezvous. If you want good ribs and have time go to the Commissary in Germantown.

I liked the brirket and pulled pork more than the ribs. But I would leave now and drive there for the coleslaw
