The rib route

It's that time of year again. Soon we'll be heading north for the summer migration - Florida to Minnesota. Wife likes to try a new route each time and this year is thinking we need to tackle famous rib eateries en route. She has us stopping in Montgomery, Memphis and St. Charles (St. Louis). We've got a few restaurants in mind (like the Rendezous in Memphis) but if anyone has ideas they'd like to share that would be good, maybe even suggesting slightly different stopping off points to fully experience the best of the best ribs!

There is Arthur Bryant's in Kansas City, and also Jack Stack, an upscale BBQ restaurant, of all things. If you can manage to get yourself a burnt ends sandwich at Bryant's, you will be very happy. Ribs and brisket are also very good there.

I used to freakin' "live" at Fat Matts when I lived in Atlanta. They also had Fat Matt's Chicken Shack (don't know if that's still next door). Bomb fried chicken. Blues posters all over the walls including old shows my Uncle Henry produced.

That's a great way to travel, in search of ribs!

If we go to Florida, we search for barbeque on the way down and back.

Damn, I just got back from Atlanta - wish I had known to check this thread while I was there!

If you come through Chicago, stop by Smoque. Featured on Diners, Drive ins and Dives and owned by a childhood friend of mine.

In the interest of full disclosure, I don't eat beef or pork so I have never had their ribs, but my family raves about them (and their brisket, too.) I had them cater my dad's 75th birthday party last fall and we had NOTHING left.

I did as well, when I worked there some years ago. And some other tiny place in Athens when I worked there for a time, though it wasn't the automatic for the people place. It was another in town somewhere.
I had ribs today, but they were way disappointing compared to either of the Ga places.
Over the two years of commuters dining in Ga I put on 20lbs.

Too bad you're not coming thru Bklyn.
Fette Sau ...... oh my! And they have (or use to) a real good root beer in bottles and Old Pogue.
