Through an alley and down the stairs, this cave of a restaurant has been a Memphis favorite since 1948. Hoards of hungry diners tuck into Rendezvous' famous dry-rubbed pork ribs as fast as the kitchen can sling them. There are other things on the menu (mostly meat, in various guises), but don't bother—the ribs are the name of the game. Red-and white-checked tablecloths and walls hung with a half-century's worth of memorabilia give the space a kitschy charm. Expect crowds, especially on weekends.
