This is our "go to" for ribs in Memphis. We live out of town, but visit multiple times a year and have to visit Memphis Barbecue Co. EVERY time. Some say it's pricey, but we say it's WORTH EVERY PENNY! We always split the dry rub rack of ribs and buy two extra sides so we each get two. I've... More

When we go to the Casino's in Tunica MS we stop in at the Memphis Barbecue Co for the babyback ribs. These ribs are very thick they are the meatiest ribs I have had anywhere. I usually get the wet ribs and they have a glaze they put on them that just pops.

Had a serious BBQ craving & decided to stop by Memphis Barbecue after it was recommended. Received a very warm greeting & had the doors held open for me by staff members which was a plus. But was shocked when I was asked if I wanted smoking or non-smoking seating. Seriously? In 2016 there are still restaurants that allow smoking??... More
