A & R Barbecue

1802 Elvis Presley Blvd.
Memphis , TN , United States
(901) 774-7444

Operating under the motto "Anyone can put the heat to the meat, but only a few can barbecue" since 1983, A & R is perhaps the pinnacle of BBQ in Memphis. The atmosphere is no-frills and unassuming, but while you wait for food, you're sure to see a steady stream of locals pouring in for take-out. The food is nothing short of exceptional, and whether you go with the family-style ribs or the classic pulled pork sandwich (served with heaps of sides like potato salad and fried okra), you're sure to be satisfied.
