the chainwheel in Little Rock. I see them call you memphis boy, and the hour and a half it takes to get there is worth it. Their owner collects retro bikes with history. Last time I was there they had a 7-11 Serotta ridden by Andy Hampsten in the Giro the year he won a stage, a colnago ridden by Paul Shapiro in the 80's, and severeal others. I used to live in Little Rock and loved going to that place. They are well presented, and have jerseys from the pro's who wore them along with the story of the bike.
Also, if you do live in Memphis you need to swing by the Rendevous Ribs and pick of a rack of ribs for Spinchicks cravings. Get that baby eating the best ribs on the planet while it is young.

can't stand that place. evidently, it's just me. i think the 'vous, graceland, beale, etc. are all frequented by tourists. in fact, i've never had the graceland tour, and i've lived here 30 years.

corky' they have some nice ribs. on the other hand, i actually prefer the ribs at Outback over any i've had 'round here.

LR? i used to make 1 or more trips per month by car to LR. if i made that trip in 90 minutes, i'd have three or four speeding tickets. police presence has been pretty high on that route. i'll check out chainwheel, though, next time i'm there. btw, for any LR afficionados, there's a great place on the same block as the "capitol" hotel. open faced sandwiches, hot, and beer. can't remember the name, but it's a little diner-type with the 1960s tables and everything.

Agree on the dry ribs. When I lived in Memphis, I liked Houston's ribs the best.

I have moved to pensacola in the last few years and we have a Corky's here. It is OK, but I like the dry rub ribs
