I will start with Payne's. The reviews on Chowhound tended to say great or the worst. I agree, The chopped pork is great, could be the best. The cole slaw is the worst I have ever had. My feeling is the people who think it is the worst had cole slaw on their sandwich and the people who say it is the best skipped the cole slaw or like their weird variety of slaw. So when you go to Payne's, order the cole slaw on the side and then after a taste throw it out or just skip the slaw.
Rendezvouz - I got the small lunch (Dry Ribs, cole slaw, beans and a biscuit). I loved it. Be forewarned, for lunch your choice is a small rib plate or a large rib plate. This is not a bad choice since ribs are the reason to eat there.
Central, I ordered a rib plate 1/2 wet and1/2 half dry. Big mistake, should have gone with dry all the way. Onion rings so so, beans good. The people next to me had a bag of the potato chips. I tried some. The chips were spiced with something so I was not unhappy that I did not order them. A tip, when you walk in, there are 4-6 beer taps on your right. I missed these and ordered a bottle of something I did not really want. So look for the taps to see what they have.
