Not only are the burgers delicious but the interior decor of this place is beyond surprising—imagine a Disney World version of a farm! decor inside. I'm from Indiana so it reminds of a Disney World version of Indiana!

It may look like a convenience store on the outside but inside, they serve delicious Korean/Mediterranean-inspired sandwiches, wraps, and bowls. The Ninja is my FAVORITE sandwich and the chicken Bi Bim Bop is my other favorite!

Memphis BBQ

BBQ in Memphis may be a sore subject to some—everyone's got an opinion. If you're asking for mine, here are my recommendations and what specific menu item to order at each spot
BEST RIBS Located at the corner of Beale Street, this place not only has the BEST RIBS in Memphis but has an ambience you're looking for from a BBQ joint

BBQ NACHOS If you're looking for BBQ not far from where you're staying, Central BBQ is just around the corner. They offer a wide selection of all things BBQ but the nachos are by far my favorite!

SAUSAGE CHEESE PLATE The food, in my opinion, is slightly over-rated but the history behind the walls of this place lend for a great Memphis experience. I'm usually filling up on their sausage and cheese plate but Rendezvous is known for their dry-rub ribs, the staple Memphis way to prepare BBQ ribs.

BBQ BOLOGNESE It may sound weird but it's definitely delicious. Although I'm calling out the bolognese, they're other BBQ offerings—pulled pork sandwiches, ribs, etc.—are also tasty.

BBQ SAUCE Although Memphis is known for their dry-rub, I've always been a sweet and saucy fan myself. One & Only uses a sweet sauce which I find delightful. They also have amazing sides—slaw, beans, mac & cheese—which for me is as equally important as the BBQ itself. There are multiple locations across the city.

There's nothing remarkable about The Blue Monkey but perhaps that's what makes it great. It's a low key, relaxed place where anyone can go for a drink, a game of pool, and karaoke on Wednesdays.
