Dinner Tue - Sun


A rousing success since it opened in 2007, Honky Tonk BBQ serves up live music and award-winning Memphis-style treats on the southwest side of the city. Though the rollicking bar up front takes its cues from a swinging Wild West saloon, the rear dining room offers a more sedate—though still eclectic—setting for sipping on house cocktails and chowing down on sensational smoked meats. You'll need two hands to hold homemade empanadas stuffed with combinations like Manchego and shiitake mushrooms, and extra cottony white bread to soak up the juices of bone-in, wood-smoked chicken. Brisket chili is even more robust with a scoop of creamy mac and cheese. And if you're still hungry, soda floats with Bridgeport-made Filbert's root beer are the cherry on top. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
