This Historic Barbecue Joint In Tennessee Is Worthy Of A Pilgrimage

A historic barbecue joint in Tennessee?! It doesn’t sound too surprising, does it? Sure, you may find bbq eateries touting their family values and generations-long experience in the culinary business, but it’s Leonard’s Pit Barbecue in Memphis, Tennessee that gives us all the feels. This is where you can show up and expect to be treated like family, where you’ll fall in love with your favorite bbq platter and order it again and again, a nostalgic tie to warm summer afternoons spent in the southern sunshine.
