Jim Neely has been slow-cooking pork shoulders and racks of ribs at this homey Memphis barbecue joint for three decades. Both are excellent (we especially love the chopped shoulder sandwich), but the must-try item here is the barbecue spaghetti. Yep, it's just what it sounds—cooked spaghetti tossed with Neely's own barbecue sauce and chunks of roast pork. Some say it's an acquired taste—if you're unsure, go for the sampler platter, which includes the spaghetti and five kinds of meat. Atmosphere is cozy and laid back, with worn tables and family photos on the wall.
