No one loved a good burger more than Elvis. His infamous demise is a reminder of just how much he loved the buns. So where to go in Memphis for the best burger? Like a lot of good American cooking, it’s somewhere with a bit of influence from outside the US.

We think The King would approve.
But you can’t come to the south without a barbeque experience – the area is known as the BBQ capital of the world. So get yourself down to A&R Bar-B-Q for ribs that are seasoned beautifully and glide away from the bone. Sauce comes on the side – so you can really enjoy the flavor.
