The gem of Overton Square in our opinion. It's pizza at it's best with local and eclectic flavor and decor. There's a bar and it's at the heart of one of the hottest areas in Midtown. Plenty of cheap ($3.00) parking nearby in the new parking garage right behind it.

Huey's has the best burger in town according to many years of winning "Memphis' Best". It's locally owned and family run. It's an iconic place to visit and one that you will not forget. Casual and fun. Good food. Easy parking.

By far the best fried chicken you will ever eat! Period! Joes' is actually a very nice restaurant located adjacent to a lovely antique store. It is owned by two men named Joe. Hence Joes'! Both are the chefs and the food is really good. It has a limited menu on which you will find the fried chicken. It calls me. I have to go. The prices are great and the location is easy to find. Plan at least on evening meal there. You won't be sorry.

This is the local gathering place for politicians and plain folk alike. The decor has been the same since the 60's with very little reno or update. If you are looking for true local flavor in atmosphere, character AND food , this is your place! It's a true "meat n' three" and a great place for a cheap breakfast. Breakfast and lunch only.

Central BBQ is probably the best known place for BBQ in Memphis. It is all Memphis and features ribs and pulled pork. Best part is that it is only minutes from our space. Hungry? You can take care of that in less than a 10 minute walk.

Iconic Beale Street is only about 15 minutes from midtown. It's a must see both day and night. Be sure to take in the oldest sundry store in Memphis, A. Schwab. By day you will appreciate the cobblestone street and the architecture of the old buildings on Beale and nearby. At night it comes alive! You will have to experience it to understand!

This is a home that has been kept in it's original state to recount the history of the Underground Railroad during the period in which slavery was still very much alive. It was owned by a well known Memphis business man who became an abolitionist. He put the lives of his family and loved ones in danger to do what he thought was right in helping slaves get to freedom. It's a wonderfully preserved historical venue with a very well-done tour. You must drive as it is in a remote area of downtown.

It's hard to find the right category for the Botanic Garden because it is so much more than a museum. There is a place for children to play in "My Big Backyard" that is next to none in spurning their creativity in play. You can stroll the winding pathways through the well groomed gardens and feed the gigantic koi in the serene Japanese garden. There are several sculptures scattered throughout the open lawns and in secluded garden areas. (Three of the sculptures were done by my mother, whose artwork you will see on the walls of your room). In addition, they frequently have exhibits by local artists as well as special traveling shows throughout the year.

"It's a must see! If they don't have it, you don't need it!" A recent addition to the interior is an "ole-time" soda fountain. Partake of a yummy malted or ice cream sundae!
