Food Scene

I am from the South and can get fried chicken this good at Grandma's house. If you aren't from here though, this is awesome fried chicken with a bit of a spicy kick and you can't get it another way.

Inconsistent but this is my favorite BBQ ribs when they are at their best. Some visits I get undercooked or overcooked and I wish they'd be more consistent if I'm going to recommend it. Local beer!

The Arcade has the honor of being Memphis' oldest restaurant. Speros Zepatos founded the diner in 1919 after immigrating from Cephalonia, Greece. Food is decent and worth the visit.

Wonderful Brazilian chain restaurant with great cocktails. Can easily spend $100 for two for all the meat you can stand. I love it when I want to splurge.

I think it is about $8 for a slice of various cheesecake offerings. You can also get wine or other drink options (not beer or liquor). I enjoy it.

Beer and a soul burger is what you do here. It is an institution and you can walk upstairs to see what has been a brothel, dry goods store, and more. Different visits bring differing experiences.

Arts & Culture

In Midtown Memphis, this was party central back in the late 70s/early 80s but faded out. It has come back and is a great area for live plays, great restaurants, drinks, and more. 5 miles by car.

This place is a little hidden but totally worth the visit and inexpensive at $6 for adults. It is a private collection and wonderful to see. Just down Main St. on the trolley line.
