Memphis BBQ..........

Where would you go if you were a lady dining solo for good BBQ in a safe area with immediate parking next to the restaurant. My choice would be Central. Any other suggestions for a friend. she will have a car and staying near Graceland. I thought about Marlowe's. I think they will send the pink car and pick you up. Thanks.

Central is good. The BBQ Shop on Madison might be a good choice if a parking spot is available on the street in front of the restaurant. Good Barbecue places with abundant parking seem to be hard to come by.

Yes, Marlowe's still says on their website that they'll pick you up.

What about Interstate on Stateline? That's not too far from Graceland. If she plans on going during the day, she could go to the one on Third. I'd be fine going there by myself during the day. Both have self parking.

Maybe, but running your food to a judge and serving people in a restaurant are two totally different things. They tried to poison my family with the worst ribs that I've even had. We will never buy food from them again.
