More Information

It's quite an accomplishment to see your business become a famous Memphis landmark and stay that way for more than 60 years. Even more so when it's tucked away in a downtown alley. The Vergos family has worked hard for that honor and to make the name Rendezvous synonymous with Memphis ribs.
