Memphis SmokeHouse - Thanks chowhounds - review

Well I took the advice of many people on this board and finally had dinner at Memphis Smoke House.

While it is definitely not fine dining, put a plate of meat in front of me and I am one happy girl!! We ordered the Miles Davis Platter because we wanted to taste all I have been reading about. Here is my rundown.

Ribs (ordered dry) were fantastic!! Dry with just the right amount of spices and just the right amount of "bite" Thankfully they were not pre boiled!!

Chicken was a quarter dark while I only had one bite of it, it was moist and succculent.

Pulled pork was moist but it had a slightly rewarmed taste to it. My husband liked it though.

Brisket was not what I expected at all. Being used to my moms "Jewish" style braised till it falls apart brisket, it wasn't my style but it was good.

Wings were excellent, not swimming in sauce and really moist.

Shortribs were nicely sauced and tender.

The baked beans had a nice kick to them and the coleslaw was wonderfully tangy and fresh.

My only complaint was with the cornbread which was really dry, but who needs cornbread when you have all that meat!!

My VERY picky husband really liked it also which is unusual for him. He eats spagetti out of a can, but I love him anyway. The service was brisk, coffee fresh and we would defiinitely eat there again!! Thanks again for the recommendation!!
