Max's Memphis Barbecue Restaurant Review

: Got a hankerin’ for barbecue in upstate New York? There’s only one place to head---Max’s Memphis Barbecue, certainly a step up from many southern barbecue joints. Friendly service awaits at this casual and attractive spot. Sit at the horseshoe-shaped bar in the two-story side of the building, where a huge colorful big bird (crafted by a local artist) hangs over the space, sip on a good margarita and munch a few salty peanuts before heading in to dine on the large portions of pulled pork, hickory smoked for up to 15 hours. Barbecued baked beans pass muster as well as the collard greens. We love the garlic-mashed potatoes and the homemade cornbread.
