Remember that day that we went to Tupelo to feed a giraffe? Well on our way out of town, we stopped by Showboat Barbecue for a quick lunch.
When we saw where Showboat was on a map we were a little concerned about it being sort of sketch, but our concerns were put to rest as soon as we arrived. Super clean and really not scary at all. And truthfully, the employees and owner could not have been more friendly. They knew every person who walked in the door after us. Not only did they know their names and orders, but also joked around with them. It felt like a perfect little family atmosphere! One of the regulars (who turned out to be an Auburn graduate) gave Christopher a hard time for his Alabama hoody which evolved into a long discussion with topics all over the place. I don’t think we stopped smiling the whole time we were there. 🙂
This is just the regular pork sandwich plate. It was so much food! They have a jumbo plate that I’m pretty sure Christopher and I could’ve split. Their barbeque is sweet and slightly tangy and completely scrumptious! And their okra… oh my goodness, it was perfectly crispy and delicious. I really can’t say enough good things about this food!
Memphis is famous for its barbecue and to be totally honest… I think Showboat might be one of my top favorites. It’s in my top two right now. Our plan is to try all the places here and pick an absolute favorite. I’m pretty excited about that!
