Alton’s BBQ at the Memphis Zoo (Now Closed)

This bbq kiosk inside the Memphis Zoo didn’t last for very long, but I’m not sure why. We actually enjoyed it, especially because the meat was actually wood-smoked on site. Check out my slideshow of pictures from our family visit to the Christmas Zoo Lights event and our dinner for the evening, Alton’s BBQ.

Chef TNT BBQ-A Memphis Food Truck Treasure

Thank you Chef TNT BBQ! Thank you for barbecue that actually tastes like barbecue. Thank you for smoked ribs that actually have smoke flavor.

Whole Hog Café-Closed in Memphis, But Open in Little Rock

This Little Rock, Arkansas-based chain barbecue restaurant had two Memphis locations, both of which have closed. I made it out to both Quince Rd and Germantown Pkwy locations before they closed their doors and I also had an awesome bbq sandwich at the Little Rock Airport location. Anyone passing through Arkansas, Little Rock especially, might still be … Continue reading »

Cheers of Millington-Adam Bullock BBQ

The old hit TV series, Cheers, gave the rest of the country a glimpse into the Boston bar scene in the 1980’s. Anyone who has watched the show, remembers what made the show-chemistry. It was all about the relationships between the bartenders, regular patrons and drifters. Every city has its own bar scenes, and every bar has its … Continue reading »

D’bo’s Wings-n-Things/Big Un’s Hickory Smoked BBQ-Now Closed

For years as we picked up our hot wings from D’Bo’s, we also ordered a few of the “bbq” wings, which were really not barbecued, just fried and tossed in bbq sauce. But I always thought they really had a flavorful bbq sauce that could be awesome on smoked ribs or pork shoulder. My wish came … Continue reading »

Williams Bar-BQ

When I met William some years ago, he told me that he’d been selling barbecue out of this little brick building on the little side street in West Memphis, AR for years. Not far across the bridge from downtown Memphis, Williams Bar-BQ is a sandwich-only place (no ribs), so I grabbed a smoked pork sandwich with sauce and slaw to-go. … Continue reading »

Coach’s Grillz & Bar-B-Que-Smoky Pork and Grilled Cabbage

I first learned about Coach’s Grillz & Bar-B-Que from a work colleague, Frank Morris. By his description of the location, I figured it had replaced the previous Smoked Out Championship BBQ and Tango & Murph’s BBQ before that. Indeed, Coach’s now occupies that same space just on the outside edge of the Raleigh area of Memphis, going … Continue reading »

Tom’s Bar-B-Q & Deli

For well over a decade now, I’ve made a practice of asking around to discover every nook and cranny in the Memphis bbq universe. Over time, people learned that I was always looking for the next bbq adventure. Several years ago, a colleague asked if I’d been to Tom’s BBQ. It was new to me at the time, … Continue reading »

Three Little Pigs Bar-B-Q

Three Little Pigs Bar-B-Q located on Quince Avenue is a small, typical Memphis bbq joint; a simple, down-home diner filled with pig memorabilia. They were busy when we were there, but the service was fast and cordial. The tangy Blue Plate bbq sauce they served us, has become a classic in Memphis and can be … Continue reading »
