First note: the writer of that Scene piece grew up in Memphis and lived here until about 10 years ago. Second, I would like to see a real Greek joint, like Melos Taverna was in its heyday. Third, if we are talking chains, how about the one we used to have and let get away: WHATABURGER.
I still miss Po' Folks. I have fond memories of going there in my youth. Apparently they are only in Florida now (and one in Lower Alabama): http://www.pofolks.net/locations.aspx
Hmmm... I doubt you actually COULD fail at selling fried chicken in Memphis, unless you can't read the timer on the deep-fry machine, or have staff stealing from you. Good luck, Ms. Pedersen. But I'm sticking with Gus's and Pirtle's myself.
ah, yes. further healthy blossoms in this deep-fried oasis.

Thank you for what you are doing Christina, it sounds like a lot of fun for everyone. My husband and I will definitely be signing up for one of your tours!

Thank you so much Lesley for this great article. I can not smile big enough!!
Mempops in East Memphis.
Probably Mempops, which seems to be the new clear favorite of media types here in town. But I still prefer La Michoacana! (Let's hope the next Mexican immigrants who dream of opening such a wonderful establishment on this side of the border find a way to climb over that wall Trump is gonna build.)
