Food from Alcenia's, Huey's, Beauty Shop and Restaurant Iris
Feeling hungry yet?

Eating in Memphis is an experience for the soul. Our specialty may be barbecue — Memphis is home to more than 100 barbecue restaurants — but make no bones about it: Dining out (or taking out!) in Memphis doesn’t stop at 'cue. In fact, Memphis might be just as famous for our wings. You’ll find just as many wing joints — tossing their wings in that sweet, sticky Memphis honey gold sauce — as you do barbecue spots around town. 

And it doesn’t end there. We dish up soul food, fine dining, twists on Southern classics, authentic Italian and Mexican cuisine, burgers, vegan fare and so much more. And our award-winning chefs and restaurateurs, brewers and distillers will welcome you with a dose of Southern hospitality every time.
