    Jack's Rib Shack is pretty damn good most of the time, and doesn't really get the accolades it deserves. Just head towards downtown on Summer Ave, and after you pass White Station Rd, look to your left- it isn't really on Summer, but kind of off to the side. If you miss it, just keep going down Summer- there is a Central BBQ down a little bit farther on your left.

    And if you need breakfast the next morning, keep going a little bit farther down Summer- Bryant's has the best breakfast in the world! Just get a country ham, egg and cheese biscuit- you won't need anything else!

      I think Jack's Rib Shack is closed. Central BBQ on Summer is a good idea. There is also an A&R barbecue on Stage in Bartlett.

      If you go to Bryant's you will pass by Central. I would not miss one of those pulled pork sandwiches if I had to take it home for dinner.

      Central BBQ @ 2249 Central Ave., Memphis, TN. 901 - 272 - 9377.
