Sad to report legendary Memphis gathering place Friends shut down some time in the last year or two. (Where was Memphis Heritage on this one?) However, good news is that Jack's (no relation to Yarber confirmed at this point) BBQ Shack has opened up in a portion of the building. Their dry ribs blow Rendezvous ribs away on 1) taste 2) meat & 3) price. For $9.95 plus tax you get the usual number of ribs--with far more meat on them than any other rib in town--good slaw, good beans, and a wheat roll. White people can cook ribs too! Ambience is a D- so get 'em to go. 5099 Old Summer. (No recommendation on wet rib yet).
