Came in with friends for trivia night. Best to get there early for a table. It was a lot of fun, and the food was ok. Had the catfish which was good. Buffalo wings were also good.

We came here as part of a three restaurant tour with City Tasting Tours. At this stop we had catfish, chow chow, and a fried green tomato. It was so delicious and would deserve a second visit to try more!

What a great space for lunch in the heart of South Main St Memphis. Great music, "Build Your Own Burger" on Tuesday is awesome. Specials are great throw backs.
