(NEXSTAR) – Make no bones about it: Barbecue is one of America’s favorite cuisines, and in the Memphis area, it’s king

The best barbecue, therefore, is truly in the taste buds of the beholder. With that in mind, it’s perhaps easier to set aside any preconceived notions and enjoy some regional styles of barbecue — even if it’s not exactly one’s preferred style.

To help determine where some of the most finger-lickin’ examples can be found, the analysts at Yelp have compiled a list of the platform’s top-rated barbecue joints in every state, based on the recommendations from its user community. It should be noted, though, that Yelp’s findings are also based on the “total volume” of reviews for each barbecue spot, which means that newer restaurants might be underrepresented.

Tennessee’s top spot according to Yelp: The Bar-B-Q Shop, a longtime staple on Madison Avenue in Midtown. And Mississippi’s best is just across the state line in Horn Lake — it’s called Memphis Barbecue.

Now, these results don’t necessarily line up with other previous barbecue rankings, like this one that puts Cozy Corner at the top, or this one that lauds Corky’s as No. 1 — but it’s clear that the Bar-B-Q Shop and Memphis Barbecue are high on anyone’s lists.
