BAD FOOD!!! BAD SERVICE!!!

Went to Showboats for lunch today. I ordered the Jumbo Cheeseburger. What I received was a jumbo bun with a patty that was the size of a Mcdonald's hamburger patty. I asked if it was a jumbo size and the lady that cooked it said yes with a smirk on her face. I was dissatisfied and nothing was done. I went as far as saying that you ripped me off. Nothing was said. Just another smirk. Don't eat here !!!! I've been in the restaurant bizz for 17 years and never treated a guest in this manner. Don't eat here!!!!

TOP 3 in Memphis Pulled Pork Sandwich Scene

I have set the goal to make sure I have a pulled pork barbecue sandwich at pretty much every barbecue restaurant in Memphis. I have been to: Rendezvous, Interstate, Corky's, Cozy Corner, Top's, Coleman's, Leonard's, A&R, Commissary, Marlowe's, Tom's, Central, etc.

Among all the BBQ restaurants I've been to, Showboat is easily among the TOP THREE in terms of pulled pork barbecue sandwiches.

There are two other things I really like about Showboat. First, it's regular sized sandwich is the size of most restaurants' jumbo sized sandwich; its jumbo is just enormous. Second, the owners go to great length to maintain an excellent atmosphere and decor.

No review would be complete without some constructive criticism. Sometimes, the restaurant is inconsistent. It's usually a long drive for me to get there, but I've been there around 5 to 10 times. About 80% of the times, the sandwiches have been excellent. But 20% of the times, the sandwich is only good, but not great like usual.

But despite that issue, I strongly recommend the drive or walk out to Showboat. It has a great jumbo BBQ pulled pork sandwich!

Surprising in fact !

jumped off the interstate on Ridgeway headed south, haven't been in that part of town lately..it's definitely changed a great deal, but I stopped by to try some ribs, and got a couple of sandwichs to go...the service was freindly and helpful, I must say that the ribs were pretty darn good, certainly better than the dump called the Rendezvous, again I was pleasantly surprised, truly unexpected, the location is not that good but neither are a bunch of other locations in and around Memphis, TN
