Words from Pope Al, &c. by Jay Nordlinger, who experienced an overabundance of CNN in the Detroit airport:
I found the Memphis airport much better, and for this reason: Jim Neely’s Interstate Barbecue. The young, plump woman behind the counter said, “We specialize in pork,” and do they ever.
Barbecue and no mandatory CNN: Those things make Memphis’s airport a heaven.
I like to take out-of-town visitors to Neely's on Jefferson. Delicious barbecue, prompt service by a very friendly staff, and bluesy music playing in the background. That place just says "Memphis" to me.
