central bbq – best barbecue nachos in memphis

centralbbqnachosMy dad drove up from South Carolina Friday night to visit for my son, Elek’s birthday. He bought Central BBQ nachos, chicken, and ribs. While I think Central BBQ has the best ribs in the city hands down, their barbecue nachos were outstanding! I can’t tell if the picture looks good or not, but let me tell you, it sure tasted great. We munched on the nachos as an appetizer, then we started in on the ribs and chicken. I prefer wet ribs rather than dry ribs because I think I’m addicted to barbecue sauce.

DinnerwithfamilyMy grandmother, Mema, was able to make it too. I would love to learn how to cook ribs like Central BBQ does. I have a lot of the equipment now and just need to set aside four hours to cook some ribs. Every time I think of barbecue I think of Central BBQ. Another place never crosses my mind because if I’m going to eat barbecue, then I’m going to eat great barbecue. I hope you try them out.

restaurant pizze stone on overton park in midtown memphis

IMG_2386We tried Pizze Stone last Friday night with our neighbors Brett, Sharon, and their 3 year old Jesse. We got four pizzas for takeout and the bill was $54, which is pretty pricey for pizza. Despite it’s high cost, the pizza was probably the best I’ve had in Memphis. Most of the ingredients are made on location and their toppings are quite fresh. Their crust is I would say medium to thin. Pizzas range anywhere from $8 to $15. Though we didn’t eat in the restaurant, I could tell it is kid friendly because there were two 4 tops with at least 3 children between them seated in the main room when I picked up our four pizzas at 6:15 PM.

We got the following:
Pesto – Pesto, Goat Cheese, Mozzarella, Tomato, and Pine Nuts
Red Led – Tomato Sauce, Roasted Garlic, Fresh Oregano, and Fresh Mozzarella
Napoli – Tomato Sauce, Mozzarella, Pepperoni, Sausage, Oven Roasted Crimini Mushrooms
Mafioso – Meatball Pizza with Caramelized Onions

My favorite in order were probably Red Led, Pesto, Napoli, and finally Mafioso, though they were all very tasty. I encourage you to try them.
