Old diner with great food! They close at 2 on Sundays. We made it with 30 minutes to spare. Everything on the menu is good! Service is just like family.

Small food served on medium plates. Tasted plain, like a cafeteria. Coffee was good, advertised real cream, but had unrefrigerated half and half. Biscuits dry and flat.

People are interesting. The waiters are more interesting. The food suits your pallet and wallet. Enjoy the surroundings and savor the atmosphere. Must do in the morning.

Oh my gosh, y'all! This place had the best food. We got there at 1pm and because we had slept in late, I really wanted breakfast and my kids wanted lunch. The Barksdale offered it all. My omelette and pancakes were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! The omelette had...More

First time I was ever there. Son, who lives in Memphis, has eaten there several times. Food was okay, but not great.

Outstanding breakfast that we found by accident. Planned to go to another highly rated spot for Sunday breakfast but it didn't open until later and we had a conference to get to. Stopped by Barksdale and really liked it! Biscuits are so light and tasty,...More
