Best Barbecue In Memphis

best barbecue in Memphis, TN

Bluff City is known for its rich cultural history, famous musicians, a tough, blue-collar attitude, and unbeatable barbecue. The following restaurants are must-visits and will feed you some of the best barbecue in Memphis:

Bar-B-Q Shop Restaurant

The Vernon family has been serving delicious barbecue to Memphis locals and tourists for over five decades. Pork, beef, chicken, and turkey are all available to be slathered in a trademark sauce that can be found in more than 100 grocery stores across five Southern states, where barbecue standards are the highest.

Central BBQ

Midtown, Downtown, and East Memphis all sport a Central BBQ, which has called Memphis home since 2002. USA Today, Southern Living, and Men’s Health have all written glowingly on Central BBQ. They made special mention of the onion rings, so be sure to give those a try.

Charlie Vergos’ Rendezvous

The Washington Post, Esquire, and the New York Times have all sent culinary experts to try this Memphis institution’s famous dry-rubbed ribs, and the conclusion is always the same: Charlie Vergos knows how to make a mean Memphis-style barbecue.

Corky’s

Corky’s puts tender love and care into every scrap of meat it serves, which is why everything is slow-cooked to perfection over charcoal and hickory wood. A 1950’s decor takes you back nearly 70 years, and the fried Delta catfish provides the authentic Southern cooking you’ve been craving.

Nobody could blame you for wanting to hop in your car right now to indulge in some of these mouthwatering treats, but make sure your car is up to the task before you set out. If you’re due for any maintenance, let our service department get your car as ready for the road as you are for some legendary barbecue.

The Best Way To Spend The End Of Summer In Memphis

end of summer in Memphis, TN

Here in Tennessee, summer lasts a little bit longer than the northern part of the country. This means we still have time to celebrate the end of summer in Memphis with festivals and other events. Here are a few that are sure to help you usher in the fall season in style.

Orion Free Music Concert Series

This music series is all about the end of summer. It occurs every week on Sunday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday through October 12th.  If you want to listen to some quality local music, the concerts are held at the Levitt Shell and start at 7:00 pm.

Hot Rod Night on Beale Street

If you love cars as much as we do, be sure to head to Beale Street on September 24th and October 22nd for Hot Rod Night. You can see these smoking hot cars from 6:00 to 10:00 pm each night. If you don’t have a Beale Street parking pass, be sure to park somewhere else.

Memphis Japan Festival

If you have always been curious about The Land of the Rising Sun, the Japan-America Society of Tennessee will host its annual Japan Festival on September 29th at the Memphis Botanic Garden. There will be martial arts demonstrations, arts & crafts, a children’s area, and music and dance performance.

As fall starts to take hold, all of us at Sunrise Buick GMC at Covington Pike want you to enjoy the seasonal charms of Memphis in safety and comfort. If your vehicle is due for any routine maintenance, schedule an appointment with our knowledgeable service department.
