South of Beale


South of Beale -This is going to be short on purpose. SOB was an early pioneer in the Memphis Gastropub scene and the revitalization of South Main. EVERYONE that I’ve sent here has said it was one of the best meals they’ve ever had. The menu changes alot, and it’s one of the few places I’d let the chef pick a meal and just roll with it. 

Check the website out and see whats up for today’s menu.  Great bar. Great food. Great pizzas.  

If you do nothing else in town, eat here. Forget BBQ, eat here.

The Green Beetle

The Green Beetle – this is the best burger in Memphis. Period. Tuesday is hamburger special day, and for $9 you can get a hamburger and fries that would feed a small 3rd world village for a week. Oh, and the homemade bun is almost a meal by itself.  This isn’t some gimmicky big burger challenge though. This is a craft burger, for people who really want to enjoy a good meal.

They run different specials every day and have menu items like a 1/2lb hot dog covered with chili & cheese and a garden’s worth of toppings.  They also have a punch card loyalty program.

Josh Huckaby (pictured) is the owner. His grand father founded the mighty Beetle which used to be a hangout for riverboat deckhands and various other Riverati. He’s all about the hustle. He tends bar, busses tables and serves excellent food. He deserves props for the work he does.
