  • I do admit to liking Carolina style sauces for the most part though. I got used to it when living and working there. But I like nearly all types of BBQ sauces. It just depends on what I'm in the mood for at the time.
    Regionally, BBQ sauces are a very interesting aspect.  All of the BBQ sauces I have tried I had high expectations, and with some my expectations were not met, and then with some my expectations got met.

    Here is the list of BBQ sauces I have eaten.  All of the following are Mild, no Hot Sauce.

  • I personally would skip the BBQ in Memphis.  I have yet to find a Memphis BBQ sauce that I like.

    Also, there is the Memphis BBQ practice of putting coleslaw on the sandwiches.  Can't taste the smoked meat with coleslaw on there.

    Slaw on BBQ is an abomination before the Lord.

    Good BBQ in Memphis, though.

  • Boy, y'all really derailed this thread.

    Enjoy this trip. Neyland Stadium is one of the great college football experiences in the country. Incredible atmosphere. And, no, there will not be empty seats just because of the rain (you are thinking of Fayetteville).

    The place to eat is Calhoun's on the River, which is also a great college football atmosphere.

    You will be able to find parking near the campus if you get there early enough. There is plenty to walk around and experience on and around the campus.

    I would also say to get in the stadium early. They do pregame right in Knoxville.

    I knew you had a screw loose, vinegar BBQ sauce??? Why not just [CENSORED] it???
    Truthfully, that's what our local place had growing up, Polar Freeze in WR, but between his sauce and excuse for slaw, I improved. It's funny, all my cousins from Memphis loved the BBQ there, I really think it was because our grandmother had a charge account there and all you had to do was sign.

    Don't knock the vinegar sauce until you try it. It's just vinegar red pepper and spices to moisten the meat then put it on the bread with a little hot sauce and, yes Cole slaw. Good stuff, I've been eating it since I moved to SE VA years ago. I still like most all bbq styles except the South Carolina Mustard based BBQ sauce. And I love mustard....go figure.

  • My son and I are taking our yearly trip to see the Hogs play on the road.  We have never been to Knoxville and want to get the most out of our trip.  So I am looking for some advice from those of you that have been there................

    Where is a good local place to eat near the stadium? 

    How is the parking situation?  Where is an easy place to park to get out and head west after the game ends?

    Any specific sights we should check out around the stadium (Volunteer Hall of Fame or museum, Peyton Manning statue, etc.) before the game?

    Take a rain suit.... Its supposed to rain all weekend and lighting.... Hopefully they don't cancel the game after you make the trip!  I would stop at Gus's Chicken in Memphis for some great fried chicken with a kick!

    I've tried it, that's what I was saying, I grew up with it. It isn't my favorite, so when given a chance, I don't use it. Truthfully, if the BBQ is moist, I don't put much on my sandwich. I do like slaw on it, especially a sweet slaw, but I understand those that don't.

    I'd stop at the original, although it burned down once?twice? in Mason, TN and avoid downtown Memphis, it's just east of Memphis, a few miles off of I-40.

    Yep, I think 11 of them now. I ate at the one in Germantown/Collierville a few years ago, it wasn't the same. Now, the one downtown in LR was good this summer, like most franchises, they very. Jonesboro has had a Corky's and a Whole Hog franchise, they both closed because they weren't anywhere near the same as the original. Now, a former Nuthill boy has a great Corky's in LR.

  • #14867 by mweston on 02 Oct 2015
  • Not all automatically put slaw on it. Some places ask if you want it. That's true in other places besides Memphis as well. As far as sauce is concerned try Central because they have several flavors and types you can try first. There are a couple of more that do something similar as well.

    There's a place down here in South Texas that does that on their Brisket Burger.   I can't stand it.

  • First of all, this guy was asking for restaurants near the stadium IN KNOXVILLE.

    He didn't ask for an extensive list of all the sauces one poster has tried (though it is impressive and I appreciate that you have kept a list).

    Second, once again there are all these comments about staying out of Memphis just like some of you do with Little Rock.

    Some of you apparently have a real fear of urban areas. That spot where Gus's is in Memphis is not a problem area that you should avoid.

    You may already know this but I'll post this driving information anyway: Just east of Dickson, TN there is a 4 lane divided highway that loops south and bypasses Nashville. It crosses I-65 and I-24 then ends at I-40 east of Nashville. It's 16 miles further but it's a heck of a lot faster and the scenery is beautiful. It's highway 840.

    It is a really nice highway built like an interstate. However the extra distance and faster time is dependent upon what time of day you go through Nashville…………..Rush Hour is bad but other than that I'd stay on the interstate.

    I don't have a fear of urban areas. I live in one. MOST people do. We do however recognize those that have high crimes and what areas to avoid and such. Which brings us to this: Your comment about Gus's shows that you don't know Memphis very well and don't realize there are more than one Gus's in Memphis and one of them is not in the best part of town. It isn't an area to be avoided but it is an area to be extra careful in and watch your back closer than others right off of downtown. The others are in good locations BUT only one of which is easy access on and off the interstate for those traveling through and that's the one by Wolfchase Mall behind the Hampton Inn.

  • #14874 by murfvol on 02 Oct 2015
  • If you're downtown, the easiest way to the stadium (avoid the most hills) is as follows. Find Clinch Ave, and walk past the Sunsphere (odd shiny golfball-looking thing), cross the bridge, and look to your left.

    There's a hotel (4 Points by Sheraton or something)  by a parking garage. Angle left, and walk between them. Just past the hotel,   head left behind yhe garage, and cross yhe pedestrian bridge.

    Veer left at the end, and head up the hill to the stadium.

    One of my favorite restaurants in town is Tupelo Honey. Just good southern food. Check it out, it's right down town.

    Also, I love Memphis. And Blues City Cafe makes a mean rack of ribs.

    I have never eaten at Wild Horse Mountain BBQ in Sallisaw.  I have though heard from people that it isn't as good since the Father passed away.  The Son now operates it, and I have heard that the Father didn't pass on his recipes to the Son  (the Father took the recipes to his grave).

    I have never tried Big Bob Gibson's White Sauce.  People do feel that it really excels with BBQ chicken.

    I am wanting to try some more BBQ sauces.  Here is what I am wanting to try.

The fee is $150 for conference games.  Non-members are not permitted to use the electric sites during football weeks.  During other times of the year, non-members may use electric sites.

    Just pray it does not rain. The gravel lot can get nasty. we had an RV there for Bama in 2012 when it rained all day. Tracked a crap load of mud  inside the RV and it was too muddy to set up tailgate gear outside under canopy.

  • #14885 by crimsonaudio on 07 Oct 2015
  • Lots of good info for visitors here: http://uagameday.com

    Bryant Museum is a must-see. The strip (north side of the stadium) is where all the partying happens, tailgating will be happening most everywhere. I like to park at Central HS (south side of stadium, on 15th St), usually Boy Scouts or some group charging $20, but when the game is over, you're only a 10 minute walk from the stadium and you can avoid the traffic jam on 15th by leaving the rear side of the school parking lot.

    Hope you enjoy your time Tuscaloosa (except for the outcome of the game).

  • If you want to fit in and not get hassled for being an enemy fan, you need to take some pliers and pull out most of your teeth. Then you're good.

  • I always liked the civil rights history stuff. Take a moment at the monument just up from the stadium. Get the barbecue nachos inside the stadium.

    Yeah I always confused that being from Magnolia.  We went to Texarkana frequently.

  • Walk around The Quad staring at the coeds.  Be sure and wear dark sunglasses so you don't get caught.

  • I hear their Klan rallies are top notch.

    You've obviously never been. We don't have that in Tuscaloosa. Must be thinking about Oxford.

  • Friends outside the SEC who've seen the campus will tell you that's what a college campus is supposed to look like.

    Take in the Quad, beautiful girls included (except for the freshman that answers to Carli...that's my daughter!)

    Seriously, Tuscaloosa is not that great but the campus and BDS make up for it.

    Only go to the original Dreamland off Jug Factory Road. The franchises are nothing special. But, you'll have a hard time getting in.

    Have a safe trip and enjoy it until post game!  RTR

  • Get ready to have all those, 100000+ fans, shaking those red & white pom poms at the section where all/most of the Hog fans sit.  And, get ready to see the ghost of Coach Bryant watching the Bama players warm up, doing so while listening to Lynyrd Skynrd singing "Sweet Home Alabama", blaring out of some of the biggest speakers at any stadium.  And, then finally, if we happen to lose (and that is NOT a given) by either 1 or 100 points, all those "tiders" will stand up in unison, waving those same pom poms, and start their very irritating chant which goes roughly like this:  blah, blah blah, hey Arkansas we just beat the hell out of you.

    One of the greatest places to see a football game ANYWHERE in America, and I love DWRS, but there really is no where like Tuscaloosa for college football.  Enjoy the trip; it's worth it...

  • The campus is nice the locals are polite (at least before the game), many of them will greet you and tell you they are grilling pork (they think that is just a hilarious joke - guess they don't know that you always eat the winner). Last time I was there was when we beat them after the rain delays, I think it was 2009. Some of the older fans were quite grumpy at the end and after the game, kept yelling at us and telling us to sit down. It was an awesome trip, we had painted Beat Bama and Roll Hogs on the sides and back window of the SUV, driving through some of the smaller villages in rural Alabama the natives looked at the car like if they had seen a UFO.

    You will also get a lot of love when you stop to get gas etc from Auburn fans. (At least that week).

  • I went for the first time 2 years ago.  Dreamland was ok (I've been spoiled with all the BBQ places in Memphis.)  Had a good time there though chatting with Bammers.  Had a good time walking around campus and the stadium prior to the game too.  Everyone was polite and cordial, will definitely go back some day.
