Charlie Vergos' Rendezvous in Memphis

Famous ribs with pulled pork, slaw and beans.

I finally had the opportunity to try the iconic Charlie Vergos' Rendezvous' famous dry rub ribs while on a family vacation to Memphis. The ribs are really what it is all about here as the other items we tried fell flat. Don't bother with the pulled chicken or even the pulled pork. Get the ribs. Try both sauces. Enjoy the atmosphere. You'll thank me later. The baked beans and slaw are okay, but the side dishes are not what Rendezvous is famous for. They offer no fried foods so service is quick - we were in and out in about 30 minutes - a good thing since we'd parked the rental at a one hour meter!

Back alley entrance.

Pulled chicken sandwich - not impressive.
