Happy Martin Luther King Day!
I hope most of you are enjoying a day off just like I am today. Whether you decide to sleep in, have a late breakfast or watch movies all day, I secretly hope you also get to squeeze in some reading time!
Today I have for you a quick post on a short visit we payed to Memphis, Tenn. Actually, it was more of a pit stop on the way to Austin, Texas. Because we had more than six hours before switching buses from Nashville to Dallas, Texas, me and my friend decided to find BBQ ribs for dinner that day. We heard a lot of good words on Memphis and its cuisine from people we've met along our journey, so the opportunity couldn't have been better.
To find the perfect place we resorted to the good ol' Yelp. After scrolling through dozens of customers' opinions we decided on CENTRAL BBQ. It did not only have wonderful reviews, but it was also located exactly where we needed it to be. In fact, for your convenience, the diner has three different locations you can choose from. We ended up going to one in MIDTOWN - 2249 Central.
We got a slab for two with dinner rolls and four sides.
Half dry, half wet ribs + BBQ beans, a potato salad, onion rings and mac n cheese.
My mouth still waters when I think about this dining experience. It was heavenly! Memphis really does have the best ribs, so don't forget to check out CENTRAL BBQ if you're in the area. You won't regret it!
P.S. While you're in the city, you should also visit the National Civil Rights Museum. It is especially worth mentioning on a day like today, as Memphis is the place where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968. Don't forget to pay tribute to the greatest man that he was.
