My husband and I were in Memphis for the weekend for some R&R. While in town, and being from the Kansas City area, we wanted to try the Memphis BBQ. We were told to try International BBQ and Rendezvous. We went to International BBQ and were very disappointed. Their ribs were fatty and swimming in cold sauce. Unfortunately we weren't able to try Rendezvous as they were closed Sunday night. So we tried Double Js Smokehouse which was Very near The Cuvil Rights Museum where we were. We were pleasantly surprised. Their ribs had the pink smoked color, the outer layer had a crisp shell and they were very meaty and lean. Perfection! Would definitely eat here when in town again.

This is where we went for lunch while visiting The National Civil Rights Museum. It is very close by. A $10 lunch special was on, I selected BBQ pulled pork and my husband BBQ Ribs. We had a choice of 3 sides. I chose salad which came as a starter then sweet corn & mash potato came with the pork. The meal was delicious and very generous would highly recommend.

There are a lot of places to eat in Memphis and this is one of the best we just happened into. I had a burger and my husband had the ribs. Really delicious. We went back a second time because everyone is so friendly. My husband had a pizza....delicious thin crust and I had the pulled pork eggrolls. It was a terrific dining experience at reasonable prices. Good Bloody Mary's. Double J's seems to fly below the radar but we had a great time meeting some locals and enjoying the food!
