When Hogs Fly:
We ship your ribs right away

FedEx Plane

Why order your ribs from the Rendezvous? Because after all the care we take to cook 'em, we're not going to ship 'em any old way.

We pick out the best ones for you. We charcoal them in a seasoned pit, nice and slow. It's the real deal, too: we never use artificial smoke flavoring.

When they're done, we pack them carefully in tough, industry-leading packaging. Then our hogs really fly: we ship your ribs to you overnight using Memphis' own FedEx. When they get to your front door a few hours later, they're good and fresh, ready to heat up on your grill and serve to your grateful friends and family. Want to know more?

Here's how we ship our ribs and here's how to serve them.

Charlie Vergos
'MR. DOWNTOWN' CHARLIE VERGOS WILL BE MISSED
On Saturday March 27th, 2010, we sadly lost Mr. Charlie Vergos at 84.

The owner of Rendezvous will be remembered for his love of downtown, committment to community, and creation of the world-famous Rendezvous ribs

Charlie Vergos took an old coal chute from the wall of his smoky basement tavern in downtown Memphis and created barbecue history. Since he first opened the doors in 1948, Charlie Vergos' Rendezvous has attracted a long list of high-profile guests including Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, former Vice President Al Gore, and entertainers such as Bill Cosby, Justin Timberlake and Mick Jagger.

While he was most famous for his ribs, Charlie was also known for his civic contributions to the city of Memphis. He was always grateful to the citizens of Memphis who supported his business. Additionally, Charlie was a major force in the revitalization of downtown Memphis. Memphis mayor A.C. Wharton called him "an icon for saving downtown."

Charlie has left the restaurant in the faithful hands of his three children so that the Memphis tradition can continue for generations to come.
