Hands down best in Memphis. The pork shoulder is off the charts and the BBQ pasta is a must try ! Friendly and not a tourist trap... Best part if you are staying in the area they will pick you up

Fred is an awesome server, the gal in the gift shop rules, and the fried green tomatoes are to die for. Add on the free ride to and fro and you can't beat it.
