Leonard's Pit Barbecue
Leonard's Pit Barbecue is a Memphis institution. The first one opened in 1922, and although that location is no longer open, the tradition is alive and well in its current home. Here are photos of part of the interior:
I had the small bbq plate, which comes with beans and fries:
The Husband had a large bbq sandwich with a side order of shoestring fries, and The Younger Son had a large bbq sandwich with a side order of wedge fries. I had Coke, The Husband had iced tea, and The Younger Son had water. You can read the menu here. Our total was around $25 before tip, so this is quite reasonable. The service was fast and pleasant. It had been years since we had been here, but the bbq was so good! We'll start going there more often now that we've remembered it. It says a lot about Memphis that there is so much good barbecue here that great restaurants fall off our radar.
Please join the weekly T Tuesday party hosted by Bleubeard and Elizabeth. Today our hostess is sharing homemade pumpkin bread and jasmine tea. Yummmm...
