I have a confession to make; this post is not from 'my neck of the woods.' It is, however, from a neck of the woods I have visited and enjoyed. Because of Thanksgiving leftovers and the fact I have an annoying cold, we haven't been out to eat. I know many of you have come to expect and enjoy my restaurant reviews, so I dug up one from October of 2009 which many of you would have missed and decided to repost it.
I mentioned in a previous post that I have Guy Fieri's book, "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives." We decided to try his favorite Barbeque stop in Memphis. From the outside, you might classify it as a dive. It's not fancy at all.
Because we are from Maine and it was our first visit to the place, they graciously served us a sampler tray, on the house, with BBQ ribs, pulled pork, BBQ bologna, and two servings of strawberry shortcake. The ribs were awesome, and I have to tell you--I don't usually eat bologna, but the BBQ bologna at this place was so delicious, if I had it to do over, I'd have it instead of the ribs!
There were pictures of the owner, Adam, with Guy Fieri.
This cutie was especially helpful. He brought us the "on the house sampler," and used my camera to get pictures for me.
The owner, Adam, and the rest of the crew--
Then he was gracious enough to pose with me and hubby. What a great, friendly place. It's only fair after all that attention, that I give them a plug:
Tom's BBQ, 4087 Getwell Road, Memphis, TN 3811.
No kidding, if you're passing through Memphis, or within a hundred miles of Memphis, it's worth going out of your way to pig out on the best BBQ ever!!! They have an amazing assortment of eat in or take out sandwiches, plates, and by-the-pound offerings. And every bite is delicious!
