This is where the original Memphis Walk (pre-Jookin') dancers hang out. We rented it one night for a Nut ReMix cast party and Lil Buck danced with these fore-bearers of the art form. It was a stunning evening. Kids can't go because smoking is allowed, but you can catch some of the best REAL Memphis music in town here. Thank goodness it is still there.
Best spot to chop for stocking stuffers at Christmas. it's also a terrific place to find props for plays and events. Great place to throw a party on the mezzanine with interesting things for guests to browse and a terrific brand new old fashioned ice ream parlor. We love this place!
Not impressed with the food. Decor is nice.
Why are there no reviews?!?!? This is a Memphis staple and it's amazing.
Best Indian food in Memphis!
I'm not a fan of modern art, but the gardens are awesome.
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.
I love going to the AMUM to visit with the Egyptian collection there. When I was a student at the U of M, I would go visit to relax and take a break.
Best Chopped Pork Sandwich in Memphis.
I bring all my visitors to Memphis here.
closed on monday
We must get the people to know as well as recognize that this is Midtown Memphis! It's imperative that we get signs posted on Broad Street to inform the visitors and allow them to know where Midtown begins on Broad Street! It's been said the lines or the railroad trackside going West on Broad separate Midtown from the Binghampton community..
I luv this area, it's beginning to look like a Cooper-Young area, in the heart of Memphis!
Crisp modern aesthetic meets fairly low cost / high quality Pizza with the customization options of Subway. Great new addition to Union Ave!
it is the best Mediterranean restaurant in Memphis, period. food quality and quantity, and they treated us very warmly. defiantly i recommend it to go there and eat.
Comfortable atmosphere with variety of wines and beers with several local beers on tap. Great for conversation with friends while you share small plates. The large community table works well for large groups and parties too.
I know that all locations sell fried chicken livers, but This location has to have the best!! I do not know what the cook does to them but Dang!!! To good!! Thanks Jack for being a part of Memphis fast food! I have a big territory to cover so lunch is usually fast and when I am on the EP blvd gotta stop at JP's.
I live not far from Little Rock Arkansas and have kin in Jackson Tennessee and I won't pass through Memphis without detouring to the Pirtle's location on Mt. Moriah. Not only do I get victuals to eat while I'm there I get some to freeze and return home with. I do look around while there to see the colonel has has hidden himself somewhere. Now you done flung a cravin' on me.....
The food is great and the wine list extensive. We had pleasant service..attention without getting in our way of a date night!!
FYI it is an over 21 bar so there is smoking.. wasn't bad enough to take away from the food!!
My GF and I like to try local places that we haven’t been to before, so we went to Fat Larry’s We had a coupon from the fundraiser book for a free platter with the purchase of another platter of equal or greater value. We had to park in the back of the restaurant, which isn’t bad other than the poor lighting back there was we were leaving and the sun had set. We were not impressed that there was not a host stand but rather a “Seat Yourself” sign. We don’t like those because the servers tend to not notice/acknowledge you walking in. The first thing I noticed as I sat down was the Memphis In May trophies, three of them, in the corner of the room. Since nobody was sitting near them, I wondered over to take a look: First Place in 1999, Second in 2003, and Third in 2005. One of the servers was kind enough to point out the Grand Champion Trophy on another wall, also from 1999. Eyebrow raised, each trophy placing progressively lower and hadn’t placed in nine years...
I showed the coupon to the server, who was pleasant, as you’d expect a server to be. However, once we ordered the first platter, a brisket platter, she informed us that we could get the brisket with the coupon, but the second one couldn’t be a brisket, also. Wouldn’t the same item be “of equal or greater value”? Regardless, I she could have kept that info to herself, because I was planning on ordering the pork platter next, anyway. They did allow me to substitute my slaw for fries and my GF’s beans for fried okra, and allowed us each to get a burger bun at no charge to make sandwiches from our platters.
Rather quickly, our food arrived. Then again, why should it take long when it was all pre-made. The pork and brisket each had a different barbecue sauce on them and the brisket sauce was fair, but the pork’s sauce was not very good. I would have preferred the other. A year of watching Robert Irvine and many other Food Network personalities critique food has ruined me. Last year, I probably would have been pleased with my meal. However, the pork didn’t taste “smokey” at all, had no kind of seasoning, and grease dripping off of it, from the sandwich to the plate. The brisket was dry and tasted like an overcooked slice of sirloin. The fries were frozen crinkle-cut fries you can get ay any supermarket, though they did sprinkle some kind of seasoning on them. The slaw on my GF’s platter was from a bucket. The okra was as the fries were, some frozen breaded okra. But, the beans were the biggest disappointment of them all. Beans aren’t that difficult. But these were taken straight out of their generic pork-n-beans can, with some of their tasteless pork thrown in. I could picture Robert turning the bowl over on the table with a disgusted look on his face.
Fat Larry, we can get heated up frozen and canned food from any of chain restaurants in the Wolfchase area. You aren’t helping the “eat local” cause if your idea of “local” was shipped in from some warehouse or bought from Sam’s. Thank you for honoring our coupon, but we won’t be back.
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!
