A&R Bar-B-Que

1802 Elvis Presley Blvd

Memphis, TN 38106

For a traditional rural barbecue experience in the middle of the city, the A&R Bar-B-Que on Elvis Presley Blvd cooks its meat in a detached smokehouse behind the restaurant. It's the kind of setup you normally have to drive out into the West Tennessee countryside to experience. Try the pork shoulder, either as a sandwich or a dinner plate, or get the homemade hot link sausages.
