Charlie Vergos' Rendezvous restaurant has a long and storied past and is a Memphis mainstay. We are spoiled for choice where BBQ is concerned, and neither of us had been here in decades. The Husband and I decided it was time to go back. It's located in an alley across the street from The Peabody Hotel. We parked at Parking Can Be Fun and walked a couple of blocks east to get to the restaurant.
We each had the large order of ribs, slaw, beans and a drink:
We ate the ribs dry, of course, and they were delicious. We didn't need a to-go box. The photo is fuzzy, but I hope you can still tell how good they look. The total was under $20 each not including tax and tip. Atmosphere is half the fun here, and even though these may not be the #1 best ribs in town they are close enough; and you get to eat at the Rendezvous.
Yelp has a 3.5 out of 5 stars rating with 961 reviews. Trip Advisor gives it 4 out of 5 stars with 1,916 reviews. Urban Spoon has a score of 76%.
I think it's probably one of the BBQ restaurants that should be tried during any trip here.
