Our People

  • Robert Junior

    Not to be confused with his dad Robert, Sr. Justin Timberlake's main man. Even though he's young, he's still been here 35 years.

  • Bobby

    The “man” – been here since 1970.  He’s the guy that runs the kitchen (so please contact him if you have any complaints) – actually, he really runs everything.

  • Geno

    Been here 44 years. Known as The Fixer -- there's no machine he can't fix. Can also serve a mean order of ribs on occasion.

  • Robert Senior

    Not to be confused with his son Robert, Jr.  Been here 54 years.  He retired in Dec. 2016. 

  • Big Jack

    Been here since 1969. Don't ever question the "Old Dog's" bite, especially when it comes to ribs. Jack retired from the restaurant in 2014, but you can catch him at the FedEx Forum checking in on our concession stands. 

  • Nick

    Loves carrying on his father’s traditions.  The best cook in the family – has appeared at the James Beard House twice.

  • Joanna "Blue Eyes"

    Our first female server.  "Blue Eyes" is probably too nice to work here, but a real pro with plenty of experience. She is unique in that she's never had a complaint!

  • Tina

    The youngest in the family.  Keeps track of all of the books and records.  She can also lay down the law with the rest of them.

  • Percy

    Started in 1970. Always with the big smile. Has served presidents on Air Force One and vice presidents on Air Force Two.  Percy retired in Dec. 2016. 

  • Dan

    Another Memphis College graduate.  Dan started working during college and stayed.  Now been here 14 years.  He is a nice guy – especially for an Alabama fan.

  • Calvin "Pooh"

    "Pooh" took over Jack's room; also know as Shaq - notice the resemblance.  Loves The Cowboys and Michael Irvin. Voted one of the best waiters in Memphis by a local newspaper reader's poll.

  • Demetrious "Red Cap"

    Demetrious is fast, efficient and quiet.  We still call him “Red Cap” even though he finally bought a new cap after 14 years.

  • John

    The restaurant started the year he was born.  The oldest son and the politician/lawyer of the family.  Reads every yelp and trip advisor review.

  • Frank

    Started working here during the early 90's while a student at Rhodes College. He has been in the Peace Corps, spent 2 years in Antarctica, and has navigated every other continent.  None of those places are nearly as exciting as working at The Rendezvous.

  • Fred

    Also known as Hollyrock, but we don't know what that means. Been here 17 years. Moved into the starting lineup 12 years ago.

  • Cheron

    If you need to book a party, ask for Cheron.  She’s been booking all of our events since 1998.  

  • Dean

    Our first cousin, the other family member. Dean can be seen on the floor covering for the owners when they decide to take off. He can fix anything, and has been around off and on for over 30 years.

  • Pat

    University of Memphis grad.  Been here since 1988.  Mainly at the shipping kitchen, but can do everything.  

  • Henry

    Henry has been cooking these ribs for 30 years.  Mr. Charlie taught him how.  Lives in Mississippi and fishes everyday.  Makes us question when he says he's sick and can't make it in.
