Happy hour each night until 8pm! Try the half and half marguerita - really good and only $6 during happy hour. Yummy salsa. Bean dip is more like chili - very filling! Both refried beans and spanish rice are vegetarian. We are on a mission to try every Mexican restaurant in Memphis - this one is our most recent and new favorite!

More Memphis BBQ - this one is also a common favorite amongst Memphians. More touristy than Central and service and food quality is said to vary with how busy they are. It is said to have been a favorite of Elvis.

Owner B.J. Chester Tamayo throws around “baby” and loves to hug a neck — and it’s all charming. But she can cook, too, and folks swear by her fried chicken and her various methods of sweet potato preparation, including her sweet potato cobbler. It’s her deft touch with desserts that really makes her cooking more soul food than simply “country cooking,” as she’s not one for pig parts (she’ll cook neckbones, but says white people won’t buy them, so it’s usually for events). She offers a Saturday soul brunch that features a somewhat peculiar combination of choices, such as salmon croquettes, fried green tomatoes, eggs and chicken and waffles.
