Charles Vergos' Rendezvous--hailed by USA Today as "what makes Memphis, Memphis," and by Southern Living as "if you only have one chance to eat barbecue, it should be at the Rendezvous"--is world famous for its ribs. Dry rubbed, then grilled over charcoal, the ribs express an intensely seasoned taste redolent of paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper and oregano.
Rendezvous has been visited by presidents, rock groups, celebrities--the White House has had official dinners catered by Rendezvous, as well as informal "send out" dinners. The legendary back alley dining room sees people from every walk of life gnawing flame-charred baby back ribs crusted with the spice mix.
Discover the obsession, and do not miss out on a feast!
Tuesday-Thursday 4:30-10:30 pm
Friday 11 am-11 pm
Saturday 11:30 am-11 pm
