Memphis, Tennessee

A mecca of American music, Memphis is the birthplace of the blues, soul, and rock and roll and Elvis Presley himself. Of course, Memphis is also one of America’s great barbecue capitals (where pork has primacy). Be sure to top off your pulled pork sandwich with a mound of saucy slaw. The month-long Memphis in May festival features the renowned World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest. Besides barbecue, Southern and soul-food classics are on display. Every year during Memphis in May, local Southern restaurants get together in Tom Lee Park to share their fare at the Great Southern Food Festival -- fried catfish or chicken, cornbread, sweet-potato pancakes, fried green tomatoes, and much more. Bring the pants with the larger waistband when you come to town, because you won’t go away hungry in Memphis, Tennessee.
