Memphis, TN 38114

Payne's serves up a perfect pork sandwich – crispy on the outside and tender inside. Sandwiches are topped with tangy slaw and a side of tasty beans. If you're not up for chopped or sliced pork, Payne's Bar-B-Que also has barbecued bologna, smoked sausage and ribs. 

Don't be deceived by the cinder-block building exterior and the dark interior. Payne's is at the top of many food critics list for best barbecue in Memphis
