Randy's Review: Barb-a-Rosa's has been a reliable stop for "Q" in Millington for over 2 decades. Now under new ownership, perhaps there will be some positive changes. Dave, the new owner, has extensive background in both . The lunch plate special for 4.99 (drink included) is one heck of a buy in the world of swine. When in the environs of Millington, this restaurant is certainly worth a stop. I give the meat a 3.5. The beans, slaw, and fries were above average.
Tony's Review: Kembree brought me back the ribs, beans and slaw. The ribs were not good. They left the fatty 'membrane' on them and they were hard to eat and not a lot of meat. The beans and slaw were just ok. I wish I could have gone and tried the other things, but I had to work.
I would like to go back and try the bbq after hearing all about it.
Kembree's Review: I'm glad we made it back to Millington to try this place out. We found out the last time we tried to make it out there, the ownership was changing and that was the 'family emergency' to why it was closed that day. Its a cute 'country' type spot with auto dealership paint decals on the windows. There was a good crowd and I thought the prices were good. The music was terrible, some sort of classic rock was loudly playing and the Jesus hand painted saw on the piano was more than unique.As for the the actual barbeque, Wow! It was really good. I had the fries and onion rings as usual since I don't do slaw and beans. The onion rings were homemade and great. The sandwich had a great flavor, I really enjoyed it. The pork was good and smokey and the sauce was great. He let us try the dry rub and I loved it. It is not yet on the menu, but I would love to have some of it at home, Courtney and I decided it was like BBQ chips seasoning. I would give BarbARosa's a 4 out of 5.

We just finished a Meaty Mama Pizza at Mama Mia's Pizzeria. It was so delicious. Mama Mia's is on Houston Levee next door to Emack and Bolio's that I blogged about before recommending its great ice cream. Mama Mia's is worth the drive wherever you are in Memphis for great pizza in a clean environment. It's locally owned and the owner has picture of famous tv families all over the walls from "Friends" to "Different Strokes" to "All in the Family" to "Roseanne". Come try it! Bellydancers: their website is homeofthebigmama.com ;)

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Cincinnati Bengals..been a fan of Hard Knocks from the Baltimore Ravens days. This is REAL reality, no staged crap like the normal reality 'crap' I am ADDICTED to. Chad Ochocinco is so funny, I wish they would show more of him. Someone make me a Tshirt with "Child Please" on it!! PLEASE! Tank Johnson's little girls are ADORABLE! I highly recommend watching if you like football and like to see what's "behind the helmet'. And if you have HBO.

I think there are about 6 flights out of Hilton Head a day, it very laid back here. We had a 6:30am flight, got here about 6:40am and the security was not even open yet. Yep, so we waited a couple of the dozen or so white rocking chairs until the security crew got here. Boarded our tiny prop plane with 11 rows on it and then got the bad news that we are delayed. Luckily we had a 2 hour layover in Atlanta and keep your fingers crossed that we make that connection. We do not feel like hanging out in the Atlanta airport any longer than we need to. Miss Lennox and Lane...
UPDATE: Boarded the plane at 7:32 EST, got on the plane, "Let's try this one more time"...sat down, overheard flight attendant and pilot.."We can't take off yet, there is a ground hold in Atlanta". DAMN U ATL!!
