Since 1948, this basement space crammed with knick knackery has been serving pork ribs dry-rubbed with an oregano and paprika-laden spice crust. ‘Cue cops note that Rendezvous’ ribs are not true barbecue, since they are grilled with direct heat over charcoal, but they’ve become a Memphis landmark and they are undeniably delicious.
