Owned and operated by the family of Charlie Vergos since the 1940s, this unique Memphis joint is best known for its pork ribs, both wet (with sauce) or dry (rubbed with dry spices). Charcoal-broiled lamb riblets and barbecue chopped chicken are always good choices as well. The restaurant's special seasoning and sauces can also be purchased online.
