Memphis Best BBQ in Buckeye AZ

I believe JRPfeff posted something about this place earlier but I couldn't find it so I'm adding a new post.
This place has the best BBQ I've ever eaten!
We journeyed to Buckeye to watch our Granddaughter compete in a Volleyball tournament. I remember JRPfeff's description of the place so it was definitely on our "must try" list.
Buckeye AZ is about 35 miles West of Phoenix, just a few miles south of I-10 on Monroe AV aka Maricopa County Route 85.  It's a small farming community with a very quaint downtown. The amazing story about how this Memphis born & raised gentleman wound up in Buckeye is highlighted in the History section of his web site. Be sure to read it. It's a story about a man and his passion and his journey from Memphis, through the Marine Corps and his landing in Buckeye.
Believe me, his passion is reflected in his Ribs, Pulled Pork & Beef, Smoked Links and Side Dishes. I had a combo plate- Ribs & Links, Coleslaw and BBQ beans. The ribs were beautifully smoked, meaty, tender and slid right off the bone. The Links were also nicely smoked and tasty. The meats were served slathered in a fantastic BBQ Sauce. A sweet sauce with a little tang and zip to it. The next time we go, I'll ask for the sauce on the side only because I prefer my ribs dry. The slaw was a mustard based slaw, the Beans were cooked with the BBQ sauce and very tender and both were good. My Bride had a Pulled Beef Sandwich. It was loaded with very tasty beef and sauce. She ate it with a fork and couldn't finish it so I had to help her out. It was lean, moist and perfectly smoked.
His restaurant is small, clean and friendly. Seats about 25 people plus there's outdoor seating as well. He and his helper joked around with us and we had a good time. The Wall is adorned with pictures from his outstanding career in the Marines. I'm not sure but I think he was a Gunny Sgt.
It's a 110 mile roundtrip from my house in the East Valley, (Gilbert, AZ), to his place, but I'll gladly make the trip until I can convince him to open a place on the East side of the Valley. It's the Best BBQ I've eaten anywhere.
If you use Interstate 10 West, you can get there from Downtown Phoenix in about 30 minutes or less in non-rush hour traffic. If you're traveling from PHX to LA,CA or vice versa, It's worth the stop.

The smile you see in the picture is just how he is!

    I'll be coming into Phoenix/Scottsdale the weekend of June 11. Should this be one of the places I try?

    I heartily recommend it. I'd stop in on my way into or out of town. It's about 3-4 miles south of I-10. Exit at Rt 85 South. Otherwise, it's about a 100 mile round trip from the Scottsdale area.
    Don't know how much time you have but here's a fun place in North Scottsdale. Outdoor dining on picnic tables, a burger joint with Music and Campfires in the evening.   http://greasewoodflat.net/
    For breakfast or lunch: http://www.dailydosegrill.com/
    For a Cowboy Breakfast @ the Valley's Pittsburgh Steelers Hdqtrs: http://haroldscorral.com/?page_id=481
    For a nice Dinner in Cave Creek just north of Scottsdale with a Southwestern feel:
    http://www.cartwrightssonoranranchhouse.com/
    There's plenty more if you want more reecommendations.
    Here's a list of Web Sites I've compiled for places in the PHX area. It's by no means a complete list and I'll add to it over time but it's a start:

    TexAz Grill was always my favorite. Wonder if they've changed much? Yes, any suggestions would be nice------it's been a few years since I've been there.

    As far as I know it's still good. It's been several years since I've eaten there but I drove by recently and it was operational. http://www.texazgrill.com/
    Richardsons across the street had a fire and I don't think they've re-opened yet. Here's an update;

    Kewl. So which other places do you suggest (favorites as opposed to just listing). From what I've seen your taste is pretty similar to mine so what out of the list would be the 2 or 3 must-gos that you suggest? Do you think that place DD&D suggests (Roberto's) is not worth it? I'll be there for 3 days but probably half the meals will be fam/friends type things. That leaves about 3 meals to dive into. Count the BBQ place and that leaves me two. And what about the pizza (think it's Pizzeria Bianco?).

And what about the pizza (think it's Pizzeria Bianco?). 

    As I've said many times on numerous threads, IMHO, Pizzeria Bianco is overrated. Most disagree with me. Here's one of my reviews. "Been here 4 times. 1 by my choice and 3 by out of towners who dragged me there kicking and screaming because they read the hype on this place. Generally, I'll wait 30 minutes or so for good food but the wait here is ridiculous, 1 to 3 hours! The tables are cramped, The wait staff is indifferent and the pizza is average for a wood-fired pizza. Oh, I forgot. The prices are outrageous!"
    It's a nice, old quaint place in downtown Phoenix, but the drawbacks outweigh the ambiance of the buildings and the area. Since I'm in the minority on this place, if you don't mind waiting, give it a try. Be there about an hour before they open to give yourself a better chance of getting seated early. They have a wine bar in a house next door, so you have plenty of time to get sloshed!
    As far as other places, tell me what you would enjoy and if you're thinking about Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner and I'll respond with some "Jim's Favorites"
    I understand Roberto's has changed hands so I can't comment on it's current status food-wise. Prior, I'd rate it a 5 out of 10. For similar fare, I recommend Los Reyes de la Torta. They don't have a web site but here's there Urbanspoon listing with recommendations. It's also closer to Scottsdale than Roberto's.

    We were there at 5:00 PM on a Saturday and they had rib tips available. Can't speak to their quality, but if they are as good as the regular ribs, they'll be great.

    Foodbme - I'm glad you liked the restaurant, but as I told you in an email, I thought the food was OK at best and I WILL NEVER GO BACK! If you want barbecue in the West Valley, go to Fritzi's instead.
     
    The City of Buckeye is more interested in harassing drivers than in helping businesses in their community.  Anyone going to any restaurant in Buckeye had better obey every traffic law to the letter.  Enforcement is absolute and warnings are not given. I do not do business in Buckeye any more.

    I guess the town needs the revenue that lawbreakers like you generate! Could your viewpoint of Memphis Best BBQ be tainted by your unpleasant experience with the Local Federalies??? I thought it was quite good . And I obeyed all the Local, County, State, Federal and International ordinances!  I interpret your comment never to go back as directed more against the local law enforcement as opposed to Memphis Best BBQ. He also has a location in Laveen. You could try that one.
    Going home, we took Scenic Buckeye Rd all the way into Phoenix. There were 2 Motorcycle Cops on Buckeye in Avondale, but that's the only ones we saw.

    Foodbme - I cook my own barbecue and occasionally compete.  I would not serve the nasty ribs he sells.  His pork was pretty good, but not to my standards.  His beans were good.
     
    Considering the place is out of the way for me living in the West Valley, I see no reason for someone to make an hour-plus drive from Phoenix or Scottsdale to eat there.  Especially with the chance of $150 service charge being assessed for driving in Buckeye.  Its not just me, my realtor complained about a ticky-tack citation yesterday.

    Personally, I'd prefer places that might reflect AZ local food. Pizza will be out-------sounds like that is no better than I can find here in SoCal. Sounds like Roberto's is out too------I definitely have exceptional Mexican places I go to so if it's not great and unique, I'll pass. There used to be a place in Old Scottsdale that had Navajo Tacos and sopapillas but I couldn't find it last time I was there. That place also had an excellent pozole. I know TexAz is definitely on my list for either lunch or dinnner so I am flexible.

    602-351-2345
    They're supposed to be the best makers of Fry Bread in the Valley. They have Fry Bread Tacos & Dessert Tacos and other dishes using fry bread. I've not eaten there but they have a big reputation. Nothing fancy but good.  http://www.azcentral.com/thingstodo/dining/147847349148
     
    For Southwestern, Cartwrights in Cave Creek that I listed above and Renegade Canteen. Both are dinner only and a little upscale casual.

     This may be the place you were thinking of in Scottsdale. Don't know anything about it or if it still exists. The map says it's right off the 101 Freeway at McDowell. Not too far from Casino Arizona.
    Native Hands
    8806 McDowell Rd., Scottsdale 480-675-9443

    Green chili stew with tortilla or fry bread understandably is a best seller. Pima Taco a folded-over fry bread stuffed with beans and cheese a Pima taco combination adds red or green chili. The house special, with the ground beef jazzed by sizzling jalapenos, tomato and onion and scooped with warm corn tortilla chips. A simple basket of fry bread, finally, fry bread dessert with honey and powdered sugar.

    I LOVE the Wigwam Resort! It's on the West side of town in Litchfield Park. It was the first resort in AZ. Old, but upgraded and classic Southwestern. For a Southwestern meal.
    Arizona Kitchen, Wigwam Resort
    300 E. Wigwam Blvd, Litchfield Park 623-935-3811
    www.wigwamresort.com


    With the help of a historian of Native American foods, the chef here has put together a bold Southwestern menu. Appetizers such as blue corn piki rolls, stuffed with capon and goat cheese, and the wild boar Anasazi bean chile give you an indication of what's to come. Entrées include grilled sirloin of buffalo and venison medallions in a blackberry-zinfandel cocoa sauce. For dessert, try the chile-spiked ice cream in the striking turquoise "bowl" of hardened sugar. It's worth the 20-minute drive from downtown Phoenix to the Wigwam Resort.

    Excellent Southwestern fare, but expensive, but good! On I-10 south of Phoenix.
     
    Kai, Sheraton Wild Horse Resort
    www.wildhorsepassresort.com 5594 Wild Horse Pass Rd. Tel 602-225-0100

    Native American Chef Strong incorporates the essence of the Pima and Maricopa tribes and locally farmed ingredients from the Gila River Indian Community to create unforgettable masterpieces. Start off with honeydew melon soup with scallop and halibut ceviche, set off with candied kumquats. Then move on to tribally raised buffalo with raspberry and tomatillo salsa. Finish up with warm fry bread topped with Kahlua ice cream. Open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday, reservations are recommended

    Rawhide....been there many times....definitely a fun place!
    Native Hands sounds really interesting----I'll have to see if they are still around.That sounds exactly what I'm looking for. The place I was referring to was in one of the shopping areas on a corner in Old Scottsdale, so I don't think it's Native Hands. I seem to recall it being across from a museum around 3rd or so. 
    Fry Bread House and Carlsbad Tavern both sound interesting. You've given me some good choices, foodbme. Thanks.

    Don't know if you know it but Rawhide moved from N. Scottsdale to S. Phoenix. It's now down just below the Rt 202, I-10 intersection near Wild Horse Pass Casino. I don't recall seeing anything resembling a Fry Bread place in Old Scottsdale. There's a place called "The Mission" in that area, but I don't think they have Fry Bread. It's more upscale. http://www.themissionaz.com/index.php

    Wow, doesn't sound like Rawhide is the same. Is it just a restaurant now?
    The place in Old Scottsdale was definitely not upscale. I couldn't find it last time I was there, so it's probably long gone.

    It's much the same as it was in Scottsdale. They moved most of the buildings down there and built some other ones. They still have the gunslinger shootouts, the wagon rides, Campfire cookouts and of course, the gift shops! They added a Rodeo Ring. It's actually bigger and better. The food's pretty good too. It's right next to Firebird Raceway and the Wild Horse Pass Resort & Casino and Bondurant High Performance Driving School.
    It's a big complex down there.

    P.S. They owners of the Old Scottsdale Rawhide sold the land for commercial & housing developments just before the bottom fell out of the market. Guess who's laughing all the way to the bank!

    I was wondering what happened to the Rawhide in Scottsdale. I'll plan a group outing to the new location.

    I'm sure they can accommodate you. They have some separate facilities that that they use for groups. Lots of businesses use them. Another place that is Western Themed and accommodates Groups is Rustlers Rooste. It's a steakhouse with indoor and outdoor accommodations. It's right at I-10 and Baseline above and behind The Arizona Grand Resort. On a hill. Nice view of the city.

    I went there when I was a kid many times and took my kids there probably 15 years ago. Nice to know at least it's the same if not better.

    Another place near Buckeye is www.waddellslonghorncorral.com

    Just exit off I10 at Jackrabbit Road.

    A Roadfood classic!

    Their burgers are excellent. Their motto is:

    Warm Beer Bad Food Lousy Service

    "The Horn" has become the hangout for the guys I work with.  We have a couple dedicated OTB horse racing addicts and now the rest of us are playing the ponies, too.
     
    Our realtor mentioned that they have an excellent breakfast and Pie Diva and I tried it today.  The Longhorn is 4 eggs, 4 slices bacon, 4 sausage patties, a large slice of ham, excellent home fries and toast. All the meats were tasty, and the bacon was fairly thick.
     
    All for just $8.99, served from 10-2 daily.  A meal for 2 if your initials aren't C.T.D.

    JRPfeff,
    Your post reminds me to mention that Memphis Best BBQ has moved to Goodyear from Buckeye.

    I still remember my visit to Memphis Best. I mentioned to the owner that his was the best barbecue in the Southwest, comparable to my favorite place in L.A., JayBee's House of Barbecue in Gardena. As soon as I mentioned that his eyes lit up. "That's my family's place"' he said. I told him his Aunt Beverly made the best BBQ. He sadly told me she had recently passed away. We then discussed his cousins, the Neely's of Interstate BBQ. I have that on my list of "must go" places anytime I visit Phoenix.

    I was stopped in Buckeye last year. No ticket! Don't know why I was stopped. No explanation given.
    Will visit Memphis  soon and report back.
    The Wigwam has changed the names of their restaurants. Arizona Kitchen is now Litchfield's. It higher priced but not outrageous. I had excellent Colorado lamb chops there.Probably the best fine dining in the West Valley.
    Red's Grill is the other restaurant. Great burgers.
     
    Waddell's Longhorn Corral is my favorite place in the area.
     
    For Chinese, I like Eest Asian Bistro on Dysart.
