With all that talk of beef ribs it was time to visit one of our go-to bbq restaurant in the City. (San Francisco). We are no strangers to Memphis Minnie's but is has been several years since our last visit. Memphis Minnies's has consistently produced very tasty and meaty beef ribs. Bob Kantor the original owner passed away last year. We had the opportunity to meet him several times. Bob was very passionate about bbq and it showed in his very special bbq. We found a parking spot right across the street which as you know in the City is unheard of. Parking karma, or a good sign of the great bbq to come?

Wednesday happens to be corned beef day at Memphis Minnei's. Ms. Goofy was all over that. I of course had to have my beef ribs. Both of our meals were excellent. Bob would be proud. I still had room for dessert and pecan pie was calling my name. The staff gave me the piece of pie compliments of the house. I am not sure if it was because they recognized me or the Memphis Minnie's t-shirt I was wearing but it defiantly put a smile on my face. If you are looking for great bbq including beef ribs and pastrami come to Memphis Minnie's.

Ribs or corned beef? Like picking your favorite child.

Chilebrown said...

Greg, The politically correct answer would be; I love them both equally. I am leaning towards the ribs.

Big Dude said...

Both meals look very good and I know I would enjoy both.

Chilebrown, you know how I feel about beef ribs (better than pork!). Now, let's talk about that pie. Was it as good as it looks? Oh, the Mac and cheese looks good too!

Tom said...

Thanks for the great review and glad that we are still producing great BBQ in your eyes. Just one small correction, Wednesday is Pastrami day and not corned beef day.

Chilebrown said...

Big Dude, I can vouch for that, enjoying both.

Three Dog BBQ, The simple answer is YES

Tom, I stand corrected on Pastrami day with Pastrami bliss. Memphis Minnie's is still our go to bbq restaurant in the Bay Area. Have I ever mentioned; I love beef ribs.

Beef? Eh. My people are about pork. Beef ribs make me think of the Renaissance Faire.

Dagny, I think I have never met a beef or pork rib I have not liked. Beef is my favorite but to find meaty and good tasting beef ribs is a challenge. MM is pretty darn consistent. I know you would like it. When I think of the Renaissance Faire I think of giant turkey legs.
