It was announced this afternoon that Spaghetti Warehouse, downtown on Huling, will be permanently closing on November 19th.

The restaurant, which opened in 1987 and is down the street from the (current) Flyer HQ, is known for its endless sourdough bread, its trolley car seating, and lasagna deals. And while it waxed and waned in favor over the years, SW was always a solid place for school group and for those looking for a quick and easy and reasonably priced lunch.

From the release:


Today, we have made the difficult business decision to announce the permanent closure of the Spaghetti Warehouse Restaurant in Memphis, Tenn., located at 40 Huling St.

The restaurant’s last day of operation will be Sunday, Nov. 19th.

We are working closely with everyone on our staff, whose hard work and dedication is appreciated, and we thank them for their many contributions.
To our many guests and to everyone throughout the Memphis community, we say, thank you. We enjoyed serving you, your family and friends. And, it was our pleasure to celebrate your many birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions.

For anyone who has a question about our restaurant in Memphis, we invite you to send us an email at:

A spokesperson for the restaurant, David Ayers, said that "The restaurant industry is very competitive these days, with lots of ups and downs … challenges that, unfortunately, led us to the decision we've made today to close."

Ayers said the closing was due to a downturn in business. Spaghetti Warehouse began in Dallas in the early ’80s. In its heyday, it had about three dozen locations. There are now just around 10.
