Memphis - new Central BBQ open downtown

People often post on here asking for BBQ options downtown, so I thought I'd make a note of this.

A new option opened today, as there's now a Central BBQ just of S. Main, right across the street from the Civil Rights Museum parking lot. I ate lunch there today and it seemed up to par with the other locations.

I think it's a better choice than Pig on Beale, Rendezvous, or A&R, which were previously the main choices in the downtown "core." I still am probably a bigger fan of Cozy Corner, but that requires a car and is north of the main downtown area.
