A really good diner with good burgers, great fries, and real milkshakes - but at actual diner prices. There are plenty of new burger places in town, but none of them have good fries (haven't tried Sear Shack yet - maybe they'll be good) and only a couple have milkshakes.
I was really excited when E's opened in some of the old CK's buildings. I thought they might fit the bill. But the food and service fell way short of my expectations. And they don't have milkshakes.
Echoing previous posters, and adding:
1. A genuine, authentic family Greek restaurant, with REAL Dolmades, not the glorified store-bought ones you see everywhere here. Homemade Pastisio, Grecian Chicken dishes, Avgolemono soup and sauce (for the Dolmades!), Moussaka, Lamb, etc.
2. A Kosher deli that can produce an at-least-decent bagel, and monster deli sandwiches. In-house produced pastrami, corned beef, and brisket, please. And don't forget the matzoh ball soup with big chunks of carrot too.
3. Maybe not a restaurant per se, but isn't about time that Memphis had it's very own gourmet cheese shop somewhere? Jeez, I have to special order Finlandia's Lappi cheese from iGourmet.com! Lappi cheese for Christ's sake! Aw come on!
I now return you to regular non-bourgeois programming.
Must be somebody who wants to be critical, but doesn't want people to know who they are... Who do we know around here like that?
Agree with earlier posts that we need a great NYC style kosher deli where one could get lox and bagels, pastrami/corned beef/brisket sandwiches and other true deli fare.
Mosa? Looks like their yummy pad thai.
What a co-inkydinky.....per my post regarding The Hungry Fisherman last week, stumbled upon this article from Memphis Magazine, May, 2016. In case anyone out there wasn't lucky enough to have experienced this little slice of buffet heaven...
@Ken Lee - Who are you? Because you're not Ken Lee.
The chicken market here hasn't been the same since we lost Mahalia Jackson's.
Crowd sourcing is better than what Ikea did.
Everything on the menu looks good and sounds good, but, I have been there three times and never been able to order what I want from the menu. They don't have this bread or that meat or something. Last week I finally just ordered a kids meal with a hot dog. How can that go wrong? The chips were stale and past the sell by date, the hot dog was cold in the center, and they had mustard but no relish. They didn't have Coke Zero so I got a small water, it was warm. This place is in bad need of a manager who knows how to manage a cafe. Nest time I will bring my own lunch.
My other favorite place that closed was The Melting Pot.
Oh my!!! A fresh seafood restaurant!!! I still miss Blue Fish in Cooper Young,,,,,, was consistently the best restaurant in our metro area. 😕😕😕
We need a good vegan place with fresh food! Or at the very least vegetarian. Other cities blow us away in this area.
For the sake of expediency I'd recommend a smoke-filled bar that serves deep fried hot dogs, mac n cheese, a long-simmering dark leafy green veg of some sort, and waffles. Oh, and tater tots.
Why stop at Mrs. Winners? Let's bring back Bojangles Chicken and Biscuits while we're at it. (Seriously, please don't.)
I know we don't need any more burger or pizza places. That's for sure. Please, no mas!
The Hungry Fisherman.....anyone remember that place?....over off of Sycamore View.
A decent deli that serves a really good Rueben.
