Memphis: Thursday May 12th BBQ Cravings Thrive

The World Champion BBQ Festival begins...... Are you rooting for the home team?!

Central BBQ has the advantage it is located on Central Ave.
I love the Slab for 2- The ribs are meaty and yummy. I like the dry rub style a Memphis tradition. They're big. French fries, onion rings, and slaw all good.The buns not so much. They could get better buns!
The dry rub hot wings are spicy and smokey and one-of-a-kind delicious. When my family comes to town they are a must have. I have to include the Nacho's - cheesy, meaty, and with the right sauce spicy. The Portabella mushroom sandwich is better than it sounds with a good smokey flavor and sauce. The BBQ chicken is good but the turkey is better. A sausage cheese plate makes a great appetizer.

Memphis has a great variety of BBQ places so choose wisely, or just go to Central.

Love the cabbage,

  5. Central BBQ Rocks...Especially the patio when they have live music and buckets of beer. A midtown favorite. Don't forget their new location on Summer Avenue. The "Tiger's Den" is a good place to watch University of Memphis basketball.

    GREAT REVIEW!!!!
