You'd think a Frenchman would be accustomed to snobbish restaurateurs.
Kudos to Kelly for refusing to bump other customers for a celebrity.
Kelly is a good guy and a great chef. Best restaurant in Memphis. Maybe Tony can make reservations well in advance for their next road trip to Memphis.
Send the mayor a cold TOPS sandwich dry, with cold fries. No Spurs fan deserves better here!
Welcome to Memphis!
I used to live in Chicago and was bumped a couple of times by vip's when trying to stay at the Palmer House. Even though I had confirmed reservations, I was still bumped, but, I was offered a free night sometime in the future.
I am sure that arrangements could have and should have been made to accommodate Parker.
This story makes us look like we have NOTHING to talk about
They probably thought he was bringing Drake and Chris Brown with him.
Maybe Tony could make a reservation for a few weeks from now, after the Grizzlies eliminate his team from the playoffs.
A great man & a champion in the BBQ field. He will be missed. Billious
Hands down, the best BBq in Memphis or anywhere . R.I.P.
I have had these and they are fabulous! Worth every penny.i was one of those who ordered that super busy holiday period. I will be again!
My first job was with Corky's. I remember Don very well. He was good to his employees. Even re-hiring someone that was fired by a manager when that employee came back and expressed his dissatisfaction with the way things happened. He also gave us Christmas bonuses even though he (from what I understand) was of the Jewish faith. God bless his family.
I think that it is great for an entrepreneur to be able to identify a target market (vegans/vegetarians) and pull together their many resources (finding a ready made food truck) to make it happen. It is not only vital to the success of the business but also the targeted customer that the food truck operator had completed ample research in order to have the ability to cater to that particular customer.
This usually leads the customer to believe "hey, this food truck was made just for me", which allows for a lifetime customer and social media follower.
A Sad day, indeed. I used to work for the family's furniture store, "Donald Furniture Store" back I the early 1970s and have to say Don was always the gentleman, even at that young age. He will truly be missed.
R. I. P. : DON PELTS. YOU WERE ALWAYS A GENTLEMAN.
So sad to hear this when I woke up this morning. I had the pleasure of growing up next door to Don and Linda. Don was sometimes the wackiest guy you'd ever meet, but in a good way. Either with an off-color joke, the occasional late evening visit to our house in his boxer shorts for a short conversation, or just being silly to entertain us kids. He always encouraged me to follow my dreams and be happy. I could go on and on, but just wanted to say we lost a great Memphian and awesome human being.
Maybe Nourishe could produce some items for Trolley Stop to carry in their market or on the menu? Trolley Stop has shown interest in providing more GF options and being able to get some waffles after the Farmer's Market or some muffins to take to work in the morning would be great!
Celiacs don't need more baking mixes. We can already make whatever we want to eat at home. What we need are more options for eating out or on the go- safe food already prepared. What I wouldn't give to be able to buy a MUFFIN or a WAFFLE or a CUPCAKE.
Based on the Huey's GF menu, anything that touches the flat-top isn't gluten-free, so other than the cheese and sausage plate, someone with celiac *is* left to just salad, just like at most other similar restaurants. That's not their problem to correct, but it is something diners with medical needs have to be concerned about.
Good for them !!!!!!
For those giving Huey's a hard time for the gluten free menu, please be a bit kinder to them. I am a Celiac and I've eaten at Huey's many, many times without being glutened. I have been told by several of their staff that one of their managers is also a Celiac. Almost all restaurants have a disclaimer on their gluten free menu to protect them from lawsuits. Huey's is aware of the cross contamination issue and tries their best to avoid it, but can't guarantee it. Any restaurant a Celiac eats at is going to pose some risk of cross contamination, unless it's a 100% gluten free restaurant (which doesn't exist in Memphis). As a Celiac I am aware of the risk when I eat out. At least Huey's is making an effort to try and serve those of us who are gluten intolerant. And it's nice to go to a restaurant where I can choose from a variety of things, instead of eating the salad because it's the only things safe for me.
