Service was great. Loved the server. Although the food was well seasoned. I had the ribs and brisket combo, the ribs were not fall off the bone tender. In fact they were chewey and dry. The brisket was also dry. Enjoyed the mustard slaw.
Memphis has amazing barbecue!! There are tons of great places to try! The Rendezvous is definitely unique among all of them--the ambience, the family-friendly atmosphere, but most of all for the food! Definitely try the beef brisket or the greek salad--delicious!
Doesn't stand up to the hype..
Had seen this on several Food Channel shows and was very excited to go. The rub on the ribs was way too salty to enjoy and the waiters were rude. Will not suggest as a stop to anyone.
I miss the Rendezvous the most.
I used to live in Memphis and at least once a week we ate at the Rendezvous. Best ribs I have ever eaten, great atmosphere and just all round best place to be. I enjoyed living in Memphis but the thing I miss the most is the Rendezvous and their ribs. If ever there, it is the place to eat. I order them since we live many miles from there now. That is how good they are!!!
Not a Dry Rub Girl but these were the best Ribs EVER!!!.
Love this place! Go as you are. No need to dress up...that's my kind of place!! Got seated, fed & out in less than an hour on a Friday night! Been ordering their spices & sauce for years. Found out my Dad and Mr. Vergos used to work together in the early 60's in Memphis. Made going there that more special. SO HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO GO EAT THERE!!! Atmosphere is great, service is awesome and love the fact that I can order all their food online & have it delivered in less than 24 hours!! Rendezvous IS A MUST if you're in Memphis!!!
I have been going to Tunica for 6 years. I go to Memphis every year to find a good BBQ. I have been to Neelys and Pig and Whistle. This year i tried Rendezvous. I tried the ribs, they were tough as leather. The waiter acted like he was doing us a favor just being there. I was shocked they had me eating on paper plates with plastic ware.
