Two of the great things about the Rendezvous are the BBQ nachos and the Sampler Appetizer Platter. Both are also served at Memphis Redbirds games, at Autozone Park, just a few blocks away. The BBQ nachos are available in either chicken or pork versions. The sampler platter has sausage, cheese, peperoncini, and kosher spears; all liberally sprinkled with Charlie Vergos' dry seasoning mix. Two of the best bargains in Memphis.
"Intensely flavorful under their blanket of spice, Charlie Vergos' dry-rub charcoal ribs have become a Memphis signature dish. The beans and slaw are inconsequential. What's needed here are flagons of beer!"
"Pork loin is a boneless alternative to ribs. These chunks of meat are so tender that they virtually fall apart when you look hard at them. They come pre-dressed with excellent Rendezvous sauce."
"Long before suppertime, when the Rendezvous opens its doors in General Washburn Alley, the smoky aroma of charcoal-cooking meat wafts through the streets of downtown Memphis, even into the Peabody Hotel across the street. "
