The martini stop in Memphis?

The menu looked fun and I wanted to try something away from the typical fare of Memphis. I was alone so I sat at the bar where I was fortunate to find the last available chair. The atmosphere is fresh and hip. The crowd seemed to be a good mix of adults, but most were under 40. I opened the... read more

My wife and daughters enjoyed mimosas, I opted for the bloody mary. The brisket omelet was very tasty.

Sooooo, I visited this place with high expectations. The service was mediocre at best. My server was kind enough, but I had to send my food back. My plate came back, minus my bacon. Definitely not satisfied with my second plate. On a better note, the$2.50 bloody marys was on point!

The sign for the RED VELVET pancakes drew me in....however, my selection was so varied, I ended up getting something else. I was with a group of 6 and we all enjoyed something different. The bloody Mary's were average.

Was in Memphis for Beale Street Music fest and hit Slim's for Sunday brunch. Perfect choice! Nice options between down home cooking and sophisticated flair. And you just can't go wrong with 100 oz mimosa bong! The Bloody Mary's are the right mix between spice and tang. Nice way to ease into Sunday.

If you're downtown in Memphis, Automatic Slim's is just across the street from the historic Peabody Hotel. It is also convenient to Beale Street, so worth a look if you are in the area.

The food is somewhat different but in a good way! I've only been a couple of times but I heard the menu changes often. I seemed to have liked the lunch course better than what I had for dinner. Both were delicious though! The atmosphere is pretty cool too!

Great interior and music. Shame about the totally uninterested and rude waitresses. I mentioned that I have celiac disease and require gluten free for medical readon. Options clearly marked on menu. Happy and made my choice from gluten free items reiterating importance of gluten free. Steak comes with onion rings on top not mentioned on menu. Asked to check if... More

Love their house chips and the blue cheese fondue, it's the best. The Southwestern BLT is a great choice for lunch. I also like their Inside Out Patty Melt.

I needed someplace for breakfast to recommend to a number of groups of extended family on their way out of town after my daughter's wedding reception. Everybody was staying at the Peabody where we held the reception so I wanted somewhere close and easy and cheaper than the $$$ Sunday brunch there. We had a total of 4 groups of... More
