Bar wise I like Wiseacre, Lafayette, high cotton, plus a few others I’m forgetting. Really liked midtown
The bass pro is also cool af if you’re into that sort of thing
What part of Memphis are you going to be in?
From my little experience, this goes a long way.
best restaurant in Memphis
Staying at the Peabody. Going to graceland
Go see the greyhounds race at southland. Won’t be around much longer (good thing), but it’s a good experience.
Central BBQ nachos.
Don't take a Lyft across the Mississippi because your boy booking the ride doesn't know geography.
Rendezvous is overrated. Hit Central BBQ instead.
Some other places I've liked in that general area: Bardogs, Majestic Grille, Itta Bena.
Blues city cafe for late night food on Beale.
1) what part of town are you staying in
2) how long are you here
3) what kind of stuff are you looking to get into (sight seeing, clubs, bars ?)
Depending on your BBQ preference:
Central BBQ - Pulled pork nachos(get the house chips instead of the tortilla chips), smoked bologna sandwich.
Rendezvous - Ribs, sausage and cheese plate
Cozy Corner - Burnt Ends, Cornish hen.
Bar-B-Q Shop - BBQ Spaghetti
If you want good Po-Boys, go to Second Line and enjoy the patio if the weather is nice.
Also, Stax Museum is a must IMO
Lorraine Motel - National Civil Rights Museum
Talk about a flash back
I miss his passion for college baseball. He's still around too
All downtown or South Main:
Ernestine and Hazel’s
Itta Bena sucks imo
Rendezvous is alright, I wouldn’t suggest it but I would oppose it if a group suggested/wants to go
Sun studio does tours if you’re into rock/music history.
Grizz games are fun and easy to get tix to if they’re in town.
Central BBQ as others have mentioned.
If you want to gamble, Tunica, MS is about 45 min ride south and has two casinos.
Rendezvous is overrated. Fun experience but not close to the best Q. Tom’s, Germantown Commissary, original Central are all better. Commissary has the best ribs of the group.
Ernstine and Hazels
Overton Park and Cooper Young
Coastal Fish at Shelby farms get the oysters and sorbets
Ernestine and Hazel's is a fantastic dive bar. The soul burger is great late night food, but it's a salt bomb if you're too sober.
It's not the same as it used to be, but Raiford's is still worth seeing for a late night spot.
Germantown Commissary is what lsufball always used to recommend
Commissary is great (get the banana pudding for dessert) but it’s a good 35-40 minutes from the Peabody.
I always recommend that as well. Not feasible if staying downtown.
This is true. Luckily it’s 1.2 miles from my house.
the down side of that. The wife doesn’t eat meat other than fish.
Gray Canary is also a solid option. But I’d honestly stay away from the “higher end” restaurants. Just get ya some good southern cookin and bbq while you’re here.
There’s some nice places to stay in Binghampton, he should probably look into that
lot of good recommendations here. Used to live on mud island and all of these were places I enjoyed. I really used to like hog and hominy a lot back in the day, they had phenomenal sweet breads.
Same. Lived in south main area then bought on mud island, it was a great place for young adults. Always something good going on.
Gus’s fried chicken
So what I’m seeing is I Need to go to Central
Or Germantown commissary.
It's really just a point of personal preference which BBQ place you like best...there's no bad ones between Central, Commissary, BBQ Shop, and Corky's
Do those places sell beer
I'm not certain Commissary does....I know Central, BBQ shop, and Corky's do. Just checked. Commissary doesn't have draft, but cans.
Hopefully the Memphis restaurant is better than the Nashville location. Nashville’s Central BBQ is utter trash
All franchised Memphis BBQ places outside of Memphis (Corky's, Central) are trash
The pork nachos from Central absolutely fuck
Going to be downtown tomorrow. I have to go to an event at the Cannon Center tomorrow night. 3.5 hour drive and turning around to come home afterwards.
Anyways, I'm probably going to hit up Central for nachos again. But I'm going to have some time to kill.
1.) Where should I park if I plan on walking around throughout the afternoon? Cannon , Central, and Bass Pro will be destinations for sure.
2.) Anywhere have a good BBQ totcho? It doesn't have to be downtown. I will have some time to kill. Wouldn't mind trying something different beside Central
Gibsons donuts is a must
Payne’s BBQ has the best pork sandwich I’ve ever had in my life. Central is overrated garbage.
Also check out the Belz museum. Priceless jade sculptures and artifacts in an office basement. It rocks.
If you’re trying to park downtown, there’s free parking on Court by the law school between front and riverside that’s almost always empty bc people don’t know about it. It’s on the north end of downtown but not a bad walk. For Bass Pro you’d probably be best off just parking there bc it’s a long walk through the parking lot from anywhere else.
This guy is an idiot
Nm just eat at Payne’s Memphis bbq is good
Last time I went, I had ribs at BBQ Shop and it was indescribable. Also had wings and nachos at Central and it didn’t blow me away as much but it was still great.
Get the central nachos, but ask for fries instead of chips.
Central by the civil rights museum is the one to go to imo.
