This neat little historic cafe away from the casinos in Tunica is a good place to head for a nice lunch. Do yourself a favor and step away from the casino buffets and check this out. The menu has a good variety although they were out of a few things the day we visited. I highly recommend the fried green... More

Ever heard the song "Walking in Memphis?" Well, this isn't Memphis but The Hollywood is mentioned in the song. Adds to the enjoyment of eating there. The day we were there, not many people in the cafe. The server who waited out table was the same one who tended the bar, cooked the food, cleaned up and took our money.... More

We visited for lunch today and enjoyed great hamburgers and tried the famous fried pickles. The waitstaff was very friendly and the food was served quickly. The atmosphere was very unique and interesting. Would definitely recommend.

This was our first visit to the Hollywood Café. If only the walls could talk, I'm sure they would have some wonderful stories to tell. It was the neatest historic place I have been to in awhile.

I have reviewed this cafe many times and it still is the best tasting chicken, fried okra, and fried green tomatoes I have ever eaten. The pork chops are big and tender. This place is not fast food so it take a little time approx 10 minutes for the chicken breast. It can get crowded around noon, so I would... More

This is a must eat at hole in the wall cafe right near all of the casinos. They had some TV's with sports on, great food, and service with a smile. The fried pickles were great. They had a light breading and fried to perfection. The club sandwich was great, the hamburger was very good, and the chicken sandwich was... More

I had a delicious burger, hand made and well flavored. My spouse had a club sandwich with fries. I had a couple of potato skins with my burger. The food was tasty and the ambiance was rustic with trees decorated with clear lights and elderly furniture that was mix and match. We were there for lunch so did not see... More
