Surprising Find

Found this walking down the street and chose it for brunch. We definitely recommend it. The place is loud and filled with locals, mostly 30-ish professionals. Menu choices were very good. My crab cake eggs Benedict was superb. A;most every table bought mimosas and I can see why. My wife's... read more

I have been here for drinks a few times over the past few years and have always enjoyed the feel of the place. Good cocktail menu and have always had friendly service. Menu looks good, have heard good things about their brunch.

We met a group for brunch and loved the menu. Many different kinds of waffles, sandwiches, omelets. I got a Manhattan Waffle and it was great. The waitress was excellent. Did not feel rushed at all. Everyone loved their choice.

My wife and I had the Sunday brunch after seeing the menu the day before. Very eclectic menu with creative dishes. We had a hard time deciding what to get because everything sounded great. Unfortunately, the food didn't live up to the descriptions. It wasn't bad, just not as good as it should have been. With a great imaginative menu... More

The wife and I were in Memphis for New Years Eve and had our fill of BBQ and catfish. Found this place on TripAdvisor it was within walking distance to our hotel. The place was not crowded at all which scared us a little but we figured it was New Years night so maybe people were not going out. We... More

Automatic Slims is a cool bar with fantastic food and drinks! We couldn't get into the Peabody for brunch when we needed, so we walked across the street to Automatic Slims. So glad we did! The food was not only great, but the freshly squeezed Mmosas were a treat too. You can easily eat here on a budget. Not too... More

The server asked for our ID and so I produced my husbands passport and my photo UK driving licence.Unfortunately, I was informed that... More
