The Memphis BBQ Co.
Horn Lake, Mississippi
We departed the Rocky Point COE Campground in Texarkana, Texas at 10:30 a.m. On our way home to Chicago, we made a stopover in the Memphis area to partake of their delicious BBQ.
We originally discovered The Memphis BBQ Co. on the Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives program on The Food Network cable channel. Our first visit to this restaurant was in April 2013. It is located 15 miles south of Memphis, Tennessee. It is a large restaurant, conveniently located adjacent to a Strip Mall, with the mall parking lot suitable for RV parking.
We arrived at the Memphis BBQ Co. at 4:20 p.m. We ordered the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer and split a full-slab of baby back ribs for our main course. The main courses come with two sides and include a slice of corn bread. The baby back ribs were juicy and succulent. The fried green tomatoes, corn bread, rice and beans, corn-on-the-cob and coleslaw were delicious. Needless to say, we left the restaurant well fed and a bit overstuffed! Our server, Quentin, was the best! We had a different server during our visit here in March 2013, but we noticed Quentin at that time, and how attentive he was to his customers. We were fortunate to be seated at one of his tables this afternoon. He took very good care of us.
We departed the Memphis BBQ Co. at 5:40 p.m. Our plan was to spend the night at a Walmart in Sikeston, Missouri. A light rain started to fall a few miles north of Blytheville, Arkansas. It was getting dark out and we needed gas. We stopped at a Pilot Truck Stop in Hayti, Missouri at 7:35 p.m. We had refueled here in March 2013. It is a safe place to spend the night, so this will be our home for tonight.
