Putting a new twist on Memphis food

Memphis food? Oh, we know what's up (and it has nothing to do with barbecue). Join along as we explore some of the best menus in Memphis, Tennessee.

Your host, Memphis Jones, puts some South in your mouth at Lunchbox Eats with a fried chicken and waffle sandwich. Washing it all down with some flavored lemonade will surely beat the heat on a hot Memphis summer day.

Itta Bena, located right down on Beale Street, is putting a twist on traditional Southern cuisine. Order up a bowl of succulent she-crab soup, scarf down tasty shrimp and grits and get busy on a side of crispy cornmeal green tomatoes.

If your sweet tooth is a callin', you'll want to pick up a little dessert at the Beauty Shop located in the Cooper Young district. Strawberry, caramel and red velvet cake will have your hair standing on end just like they did back in the day.
