You have to go to Cozy Corner! Get the Cornish Hen with a side of spaghetti! I have never been to Memphis BBQ Co., but I've heard nothing but good things about them.

I forgot to mention that Memphis BBQ Co. is not actually in Memphis, its in MS. But I think its close enough.

My favorite was a place called Payne's, and they are most known for their chopped rib sandwich. 



The above picture was my lunch, and it only cost $6.50!  Great taste!  It's in a bit of a rough neighborhood, but if you go during the day you are perfectly fine. 

For the big-name experience, I also liked the pulled pork nachos at Corky's.  The ribs were pretty good, too.

On the east side of Memphis is Germantown... There's a placed called "The Commissary" ... The lady from the show "Diva Q" has been there 3 or 4 times (she absolutely loves it) .. We went once and will DEFINATLY go back when we make it to Memphis again... WAY BETTER than the big names there..... for me it was the best place in Memphis

I stopped at a place by the name of "TOPS" out in West Memphis. Darn good brisket and some deeeeelicious baked beans!
