A-Tan is a casual restaurant that has much better than average food. We especially like the hibachi meals. Two adults with shrimp , fried rice, and soup (water to drink) and the bill before tip was $20.00 total.. the service was excellent and the staff very friendly and attentive . The in house sauces were terrific . We have been back several times and always enjoy ourselves
We went there for the first time today for my husband's birthday at 2.30, which is considered dinnertime.
Food: I was really looking forward to the filet mignon and pork loins. However, they only came around with flank steak (excellent; our favorite), sirloin, bacon-wrapped chicken (didn't care of it, honestly; all you could taste was bacon) and sausage (good, not salty at all). Very disappointed at that but didn't want to ask waiter. I would think for lack of 3-4 meats it wouldn't be the same cost as dinnertime; rather should be lunch price. That's the only reason I gave it a 4. Cheese bread was INCREDIBLE! Stuffed w/parmesan cheese. I think I ate all but 3. To DIE for!
Waiter: Freaking AWESOME! Very accomodating and pleasant.
Salad Bar: Def not worth going just for the salad. The foods were more like appetizers, but great nonetheless. Mozzarella balls, olives, lettuce/tomatoes, roasted pineapple, to name just a few.
We will def go again!!
I rate this pizza joint with 4 stars purely on their ingredients available. If someone felt their pizza had no flavor, it was likely of their own doing. This is THE only restaurant at ALL that I have yet to find marinated WHITE anchovies that taste *almost* as good as the ones I ate entire flats of with my fingers in the south of France. The crusts are fantastically crunchy from the blast of the wood fire, and you can go with one of their pre-set selections or create your own from their "bar" of ingredients.
Taco pizzas are typically the epitome of "made for kids, who thought this was a good idea if NOT?!" pizzas to me as well. It took my much younger coworker (who ironically DOES look like a child -- according to many people who see/meet her for the first time in the office and generally ask someone nearby if someone brought their daughter to work -- although she's nearly 25-years-old) ordering it on one of our lunch outings to prod my constant food curiosity. I tried it. I was shocked that it was actually pretty good. The ground beef was seasoned well, and the vegetables and sour cream added post-firing, so no wilted tomatoes or lettuce or weirdly semi-curdled sour cream.
They also (I assume it is a regular menu item at this point) have a "smores" dessert "pizza" that for someone with virtually no sweet tooth like myself to proclaim that it was FAR better than ACTUAL smores on account of the dusting of cocoa powder vs. a semi-melted/semi-solid hunk of chocolate hot enough for it to not be pleasant running down your hand, and the softer "crust" with a lovely, neutral flavor which unlike a graham cracker, doesn't instantly break apart either, further facilitating the aforementioned chocolate scalding. It is also not "Southern" sized, meaning that it is the perfect size for 2 people to halve one, or 2, small "slices" (as long as you boxed your leftover real pizzas).
You get a fifth star, when you have vegan cup cakes, please.
My food was excellent. Ribs just fell off the bones. Took a little time, but the music was so good and the food so good, you did not mind. The waiter we had was very personable and courteous. Have eaten there before and will ent anytime I have the opportunity. Sorry for those who had problems. I would recommend people try for themselves, different strokes for different folkes.

Great place to sit and have drinks. I love the calamari appetizer too. Always had people come to check on me right when I sat down, so I have no idea what Bill was talking about... of course, I'm not a jerk to staff, and I do tip.
There's nothing authentic about this "Mexican" restaurant. And I haven't been since they came under new management. However they do have the best bacon wrapped shrimp I've ever had.
Homemade Italian food. Yes please.
When we first arrived we were taken back by the greeter. She mentioned we were 5 minutes late and seemed mad. Not a very good first impression. We noticed throughout the dinner that she seemed to be a manager of some sort. There are things that come up such as child care and parking, which was our situation. Despite the first person we saw, our waiter(Ryan) was awesome! Ryan made the experience worthwhile. He always had a smile on his face and explained everything to the "T". The food was great also! I recommend lobster biscuit and pineapple upside cake!
Excellant food! I had the Salmon with Black Thai rice, one of the best salmon dishes I've eaten. Service was outstanding as well.
I don't know what the above people were complaining about - it's a freaking bar! I'd say they had pretty decent food and bevs for being a bar. Our waitress was HOT! The service was a little slow only because they were probably understaffed on the floor. The meal/appetizers/bevs were REASONABLY priced! I would go again.
Delicious food great service during lunch hour, met up with classmates
One of Memphis places to go. Their donuts are too too good. Terrific variety. Open late too. Seasonal surprises too. Made fresh very early each morning. In addition to super glazed, we like the caramel iced donuts and the apple fritters. Coffee makes it all go down even better.
A top notch steak house. Atmosphere not cold like some others on Poplar. Food always good. Piano Bar a gem in Memphis
Best Egg Rolls around, and very good hot and sour soup.
Nothing fancy here, but the Chinese is above average for Memphis.
This is the best Mexican in town, since El Chico closed.
food is good, potions are on the small side
Excellent friendly service. Cool, small, European-feel to the restaurant. DELICIOUS food. Excellent quality dishes, and from all local products. Highly recommended.
They cater my church's Wednesday night dinner (Orthodox Christian, so we don't eat meat, fish, or dairy on Wednesday, Friday, or during a fasting period like lent) and it was very good. You won't mistake their burger for the real thing, but as veggie burgers go, it was probably the best I've had.
The Silver Caboose is conveniently located on Collierville's square where there is very good parking. The atmosphere is inviting, the service is good, and the food is tasty. This is good restaurant for everyone;however, the menu seems to favor women's tastes. It's not a man's meat and potatoes place, but it does serve home cooked dishes which everyone enjoys, especially turnip greens, cornbread, chicken & dumplings, and chicken on cornbread covered with gravy, a.k.a. The Lacey Special. Take someone with you to lunch at the Silver Caboose.
