Charlie Vergos' Rendezvous

Welcome to Memphis Dry Rub BBQ Heaven

In 1948 Charlie Vergos cleaned out his diner’s basement, discovered a coal chute, and started a legend. This serendipitous find gave him a vent for his grill talents which soon catapulted his menu into rib superstardom. Almost 70 years later, thousands of rib-hungry people still pour into The ’Vous each week to devour his world famous ribs – meticulously charcoaled in a seasoned pit.

We’re totally hog wild over his Memphis-style ribs and we think you’ll get an squeal out of ‘em, too.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Local Memphians, Presidents and potentates, the King and the Killer, Rolling Stones, Justin Timberlake, and everybody who’s anybody have all been down for a bite. Rendezvous has been featured on Travel Channel's "Man v Food", on Food Network's "Best Thing I Ever Ate", and on Andrew Zimmern's "Bizarre Foods."
