Memphis is only about an hour north of Oxford, so we headed up to Elvis' hometown for a day of eating, Christmas shopping.... and more eating!
We were in Memphis September 2010. You can read about great fried chicken, Beale St., a grandma with a lime green tongue ring and what a fried Oreo tastes like here.
Arguably, the best BBQ in Memphis can found found at the Bar-B-Q Shop on Madison Ave. Their award winning Dancing Pigs BBQ sauce and dry rub placed #1 out of more than 600 entries across the country. I am not a large fan of pork, but I am a foodie, therefore I happily devoured my pulled pork on Texas Toast sandwich doused with BBQ sauce.
After The Bar-B-Q Shop we headed over to Muddy's Bake Shop for some mouthwatering cupcakes. Muddy's is a small local bakery and, from my perspective, rivals DC's wildly popular Georgetown Cupcakes.
