Central BBQ

Central BBQ -In addition to the Memphis standards ribs, pulled pork, pulled chicken, they offer items like BBQ Nacho’s, BBQ Turkey Sandwich and BBQ Bologna sandwich.  This is the heart and soul of Memphis BBQ.  There are lots of locations and I eat there once every other week.  This is where locals eat BBQ for lunch and family Tuesday night dinners when work ran late and there’s nothing in the fridge.  Its fast, its good and its not expensive.  For a Memphian, eating Central is like New Englander grabbing Dunkin’ Donuts its just part of the routine.   For More Info on Memphis BBQ click here to read the BBQ reviews.

Catherine and Mary’s

ENAM_L_PMS_meatallic

Catherine and Mary’s: To quote the timeless Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride: “Let me explain – no is too long. Let me sum up.”

Catherine and Mary’s is the latest super nova of the AM Catering constellation of stars run by Memphis’s culinary dynamic duo Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman.  This new foray puts them in the heart of the South Main district in the historic Chisca Hotel apartment development near the Orpheum Theater.

With a foundation in Tuscan and Sicilian food, this is a nice dinner with craft cocktails and new riffs on old standards that will provide you with a wonderful dining experience.

The Lookout at Bass Pro

The Lookout at Bass Pro: Normally a giant Big Box store wouldn’t make the cut. But this happens to be the most recognizeable building on the Memphis Skyline with a 30 story restaurant overlooking downtown Memphis and the Mississippi River.

This is like the restaurant in the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It’s just a unique perspective in Memphis that’s hard to pass up.

There are tickets that you have to purchase to go up but that keeps the crowd down at the top. The food isn’t particularly exceptional, but it’s good enough. The highlight here is the views and the sheer.

I like to go about an hour before sunset and get drinks and appetizers while we watch the barges ply the river and evening settle over the city back to the east. Then we typically go into downtown for dinner.

I’ve even bought an annual membership that I use to take family and clients to a truly memorable time for luncheons and apres work socials.

They have a military discount and I’d recommend buying tickets early and calling ahead to reserve tables.

The Slider Inn

The Slider Inn – Tiny masterpiece burgers and sandwiches on the most delightful porch in midtown.  They are also the only home of the lobster roll in the Mid-South. So if you’re a lost chowda-head, Red Sox fan or Maine expat, here’s your fix.
 
Slider inn has a deal where you can mix and match any of the sliders on the menu. So if you want a grilled skirt steak sandwich but also want to try the falafel and a gourmet PB&J, they can help a brother out.
 
You could eat sliders here five days in a row and not eat the same thing twice.

Local’s choice: $10 lunch deal includes 2 sliders of choice, side, soda and tip. Try any two, you won’t be sorry.

 

Automatic Gate

Automatic Gates Construction Company, Inc. – When we moved into our house, we had a gate put in.  The guys we used weren’t up to snuff.  Automatic Gates came out and fixed our gate a year later and told us why the original installer did it wrong.  I wish we had used them.  I’d recommend them to anyone.  They have technicians on staff so they can fix the electronics on the gates that they install.  Other companies contract that work out to independent third parties.

Automatic gate then came out several years later updated the keypad to a hardwired variety that wont fail like the wireless ones do.  They’re really great.
