Next city on the road trip, Memphis. It’s a city known for its legendary music history and insanely tasty ribs. Our first stop was the National Civil Rights Museum, an extremely informative and moving experience.
It’s built at the Lorraine Motel, the site where Martin Luther King Jr was shot.
Room 306, the last place MLK Jr. stayed.
Right across the street from the museum was Central BBQ, arguably the best ribs in all of Memphis.
Airbnbs are so much better when they include cats.
At this point, I had spent a week in the south but I’ve yet to eat a really good burger. After some googling, I found Off the Hoof burgers in Arlington, Tennessee, about a 40 minute drive east of Memphis.
This is the Pat LaFrieda Chopped Steak burger, topped with habanero jack cheese and served on an 81-layer croissant bun. This perfectly cooked medium-rare burger was, hands down, the best I have ever tasted.
Sweet potato waffle fries. Yes.
