A travel journal
to Memphis by Mchaela
Quote: Although I wasn't very happy to move from my beloved in Minnesota to hot and sticky Memphis, I found many things I love and missed. Including BBQ so good you think you've died and gone to heaven!
Restaurant | "Gridley's BBQ"
The first time we went there the cook was a little upset because the bread was burnt and they forgot my fries. Hearing her chew out the girl at the counter was humorous, but not exactly what you expect when you go out to eat.

My favorite is the shredded pork sandwich with coleslaw on top. It's served with beans and thick yummy fries with a glass of lemonade. If you are going with a large group, try the onion loaf. This solid loaf of onion rings mooshed together is so large that even a half loaf would feed four. The best thing is to come hungry and be ready to get messy. Believe me, you won't mind the mess.

Everyone there was super friendly and helpful with information about the restaurant. I decided to try the beef brisket. It came with two sides and a cornbread muffin. I chose the standard coleslaw and fries for my sides. The coleslaw was good, but not spectacular, the fries were warm, not hot, and the muffin was a little dry. However, the sauce made the entire meal. I regretted not asking for more, as that was my only problem with the brisket. The smoked brisket comes sliced on Texas toast covered in barbecue sauce. Yum! We went to the gift shop to see if they sold the sauce. They did, but it was sold only in a gift set with two other types of sauce which I did not wish to purchase. I just hope that it will become available on its own one day!
