Here are a few notes about the ‘que:


  • Ribs-Were moist and tender enough to eat without much struggle, but not quite as tender as I prefer. The bark was savory and crusty-probably one of the best bbq dry rub flavors I’ve tasted.


  • Ribs-Had really nice charcoal smoke flavor.

Sauce-I found the tangy, slightly sweet sauce very pleasing.

Famous “Greek” Burger-I appreciated the well-melted cheese, but I thought the burger was overall overrated. As for its texture, the burger did have a well-developed exterior crust, but the interior meat was a bit dry. As for flavor, I thought the Greek seasoning overpowered the beef and I thought there may have been lamb or some other meat blended with the ground beef, which I wasn’t partial to. These strong flavors just took away from the burger for me. If you’re not expecting an American burger, you might enjoy this Greek burger. Still, I didn’t like it as much as the standard American burger. It’s a very popular burger in Memphis and I plan to give it another try. Who knows, maybe I’ll warm up to it.
