Good food and friendly venue. BUT DO NOT go here if you have limited time, because your order will take longer than you are accustomed to.

I would kill for a Jewish deli like Carnegie Deli or Katz's in NYC. And if they had schmaltz on the tables.... and Bialys. And pastrami. And reubens on Jewish rye with real 1000 island. And real matzoh balls. OMG.....
You're killing me here... the blurb says Crazy Italians is in Poplar Plaza, but the address is in G'town or Cordova. Which is it?
Michael Pollan is plain awesome. Have enjoyed his work since Botany of Desire. What he has to say should be heard by all, and especially those who have an impact on food policy in this country.
Get a grip.....I can't help you if you think that everything is measured in dollars and cents. Autozone Park is about quality of life. Sure, not everyone likes baseball. So there are other things in downtown Memphis for them. But I love going to the ballpark after a tense day at work and feeling the stress leave slowly and steadily while a really diverse group of Memphians and visitors spend a few hours together sharing the joy of watching young about-to-be-stars and tested veterans play a great game. Why so many Memphis residents seem to enjoy being miserable instead of contributing to make this a good place to be is beyond me. Go be miserable somewhere else. Just Don't take my baseball park away.
Show Delta you appreciate them??? Really???? I should think that buying an overpriced ticket on a flight that is subsequently canceled for no articulated reason and after several more unsuccessful attempts allowing yourself to be subbed on to a flight that is thus crammed to the rafters with other folks in the same boat and will arrive near where you are going twelve hours later than you wanted to be there would be thanks enough. [May I say as an aside, local employees of nearly all of the airlines here in Memphis have been really helpful and sympathetic in such situations. Really. I am aiming this straight at corporate]. Flying is now an unbearable ordeal only undertaken when one must be somewhere in less time than it takes to drive (because we have no trains to speak of). Period. It is even worse in Baltimore and NYC and such, where you have to line up for everything and going thru the security line can take an hour or more. We have placed ourselves at the mercy of corporations who are only interested in doing what they have to to keep customers. And it's the bare minimum in many cases. Please, stop humoring them. Also, all of the doomers and gloomers need to learn a new song. The old lines about what a dump Memphis is are just that, OLD. Love it or leave it, I say, and if you do leave it you will find the same problems and upsides exist everywhere else.
Damn... Sid Selvidge and Maxine Smith in one week. It 's too much I say.... RIP.
It is heartening that Rich Fields is measured (here and even, wonder of wonders, in the CA) by all of the good he did over decades, and not just by some of his more recent public foibles. He gave this city a great deal.
