This order-at-the-counter spot serves very good Memphis-style barbecue out of a stripmall. The dry-rubbed brisket and pork ribs are the things to get here - they’re moist and tender, but not so fatty that you won’t be able to make it to the parking lot after your meal. We’re not sure it lives up to the World Champion title, but that doesn’t mean you won’t try to figure out how you’re going to smuggle a bottle of homemade spicy barbecue sauce out of here without being noticed.
