Barbecue is one of those cuisines that has different regions around the U.S. claiming its version is the best. Depending on where you go, you can find regional takes on barbecue dishes that are guaranteed to be full of flavor, from the smokey signatures known around Texas to sweet and saucy favorites cooked up in Kansas City and incredibly seasoned meats found in Memphis.

24/7 Tempo compiled a list of the "best BBQ spot" in each state, analyzing ratings and reviews from local sites and looking at acclaimed establishments while mainly avoiding chains to really showcase what every state has to offer.

According to the site, the best BBQ spot in Tennessee is Charlie Vergos' Restaurant. This Memphis eatery has been a longtime staple of the community since it first opened in the '40s. Charlie Vergos' Restaurant is located at 52 2nd Street.

Here's what 24/7 Tempo had to say about Tennessee's top BBQ spot:

"'At least we can get a decent meal/ Down at the Rendezvous' sings John Hiatt in his leaving-Nashville song 'Memphis in the Meantime.' Its many fans would say that the meals here are more than decent. It's all about the ribs at the Rendezvous, smoked with a dry rub (most Tennessee ribs are wet with sauce), but there's also pork shoulder, brisket, and lamb riblets, among other items."
