So much better than Benihana. Have been coming here for almost 30 years.
I am harder to please than a blue haired bitch on Christmas day. So when I say something or some place is fabulous, you better take your back side there immediately. This restaurant's food was FABULOUS!! The decor was confusing. They are using the old Japanese restaurants decor, but who cares. I didnt eat the bamboo themed curtains. The humus, the fresh flatbread, the lamb, chicken, beef--sheesh I think I have to go back today for some more. WitchyPoo will see all you fabulous asses there!!
We drove all the way from Collierville just to try Maximo's on 1/15/16. The atmosphere, food and service were top notch. They have a cool, quaint bar area and their drink prices are very reasonable. The Spinach and Crab appetizer was delicious as were the house salads and our entrees. I had the glazed grilled pork chop; it was very tender, moist. The taste and presentation reminded me of an expensive veal chop. My date had the mushroom stuffed chicken with roasted red pepper sauce, she raved about it. Both entrees came with risotto which is one of the hardest side dishes to get right in any restaurant, their's was cooked perfectly, very creamy and tasty. We can't wait to go back. Maximo's is one of Memphis' best! I hope they are around for a long time.
What a pleasant surprise my visit to this restaurant was. I had some trepidation, having read a review from the commercial appeal which talked about delicious Italian pasta at a very reasonable price. Having eaten there twice I can only say what a wonderful restaurant experience it was. The preparation is impeccable, the food is delicious, and generously served.
I wish these two gentlemen a great success, they have brought something new and different to our restaurant community.
Ray'z has the best bar-b-que on the planet. His sauce is delicious enough to drink. Ray'z is a must if you want the real deal!
Wonderful sandwiches and desserts. The owners are from the old world and do things the old fashioned way. Absolutely the best Tiramisu I've ever tasted.
One of the top places in town to get the freshest REAL food! thanks for being here in Midtown.
great fish sandwich.... love the potato skins as a side.
the fried shrimp is yummy as is the hamburger.... Steak sandwich special on Monday night... love Belmont!
SO, so good. Everyone, including some folks more accustomed to standard American fare, were blown out of the water. The snapper comes whole, which was also a fun conversation piece. I loved even just the simple, undressed charred tofu kebab and tomato salad spiced with jalapeno and some other spice one can't seem to put their finger on; incredibly refreshing!
great food and staff!
Great little restaurant. Quick service. Go early or late for lunch because they have a waiting list every day. First of their two locations. Great smoked meats, baby back ribs are the best! Don't miss the twice baked potato salad and banana pudding! Awesome smoked turkey and Polish Kielbasa!
Absolutely great BBQ! The smoked baby back ribs are their specialty but you do not want to miss the twice baked potato salad and banana pudding. I believe they are the best new BBQ in Memphis!
Great place to party!
My favorite after-hours joint.
Meatball Sandwich gets five stars! Amazing!
Loved it. Great food and service. Please go try it.
best dinner I ever ate.
Been going here for years....grab the Friday coupon for BOGO dinners in the memphis flyer paper in the commercial appeal. Great peanut sauce on the salad....its good on the rice too....also its an older restaurant in Memphis but it sure beats alot of other new similar places they have out. The food is excellent and service is even better! The only thing is if you drink sodas....(meaning not water or tea)...they charge for each glass.
Anyway, overall they are still one of the best in Memphis.
We went for lunch, and enjoyed it! My husband had the roast beef sammie- delicious. The roast beef was the most tender, juiciest and least salty I have ever eaten. It included fontina cheese slivers and marinated onions that seemed to be pickled or preserved in a similar fashion. The sammie was not too dry. Just right. I had the boudin and pepper sandwich- also really yummy with a spicy zing. It included very delicious peppers and onions that were also marinated or pickled and tart, but unique from the onions on the roast beef choice. My husband's cappucino was great, and my Cafe Shepherd coffee treat was perfect. It is the restaurant's take on a Vietnamese coffee...chickory brew dripped slowly over a small layer of condensed milk. And then you can drink it warm as is, or pour it over ice. The friendly service and beautiful, classic decor were the cherries on top! I do wish they offered side items, but I also appreciate the simplicity of the menu! Go eat here!!
I've only been here one time and it's already my favorite ... The food is so much fresher than any other buffet that I've ever been to... They don't put out a pan stacked FULL of an item that tends to dry out... They put out smaller pans in order to keep it fresh....The waitress brought over a plate FULL of some craw fish and clams..They were both awesomely fresh....This place has the highest quality food .... I have never ever been a sushi fan until I ate here... YUM....Eat Well is a little more expensive than other buffets but you get what you pay for...Higher Quality Food.... This place is Delicious..
