Awesome Memphian Food

Very delicious! I had the Fried Chicken (dark meat) with Sweet Potatoes and Greens (best I've ever had). I thought the owners were very nice and there wasn't a dull moment the entire time. While we waited for our food, we took the time to look around at some of the pictures on the wall and were... read more

Visited here one night about an hour before closing after hearing about the peach cobbler. We were ignored for about 10 minutes upon entering the restaurant. Finally we were asked what we wanted. We were never asked if we wanted to be seated and were only given the option to take the food away. I have never felt more unwanted... More

Yum! Fried chicken, turnip greens, and yams served in a friendly place. The Four Way is worth a stop every time we visit Memphis, or are driving through.

I had the catfish(two filets), cabbage, and broccoli with cheese. It was very good. Add a sweet tea to that and it was $11.xx. Food was hot and tasty. Owner was very nice. I would go back when in the area.

Food was excellent. Greens were done well as was the catfish. Corn pone was fresh. Nothing complicated, but very authentic. Reminded me of my grand uncles down in Mississippi when I was a child.

It says 'soul food' outside and that's exactly what you get inside. Don't let the dated interior put you off. It's full of locals and there's a reason for that. You must try the yams(sweet potatoes) I'm not sure what they so to them but my god they're tasty!!

I was visiting Memphis in January 2015 to check out the music scene and music museums, and an article in the New York Times had recommended this restaurant. I was a solo tourist visiting the restaurant on a Sunday at 1pm, dressed in khaki pants and a jeans jacket. Almost all the regular patrons were dressed for church with suit... More

Passing through Memphis, and after reading all the reviews, stopped in about 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 8, 2014. Three employees, and the older lady at the desk stared at us, we smiled waiting to be seated, but no one ever seated us. Finally, the waiting and stare-down became uncomfortable, so we left. Very odd!

Great lunch stop after visit to the Stax Museum. We were made to feel very welcome and all enjoyed the food. Portion sizes are very generous, my liver was a huge piece and very reasonably priced. Martin Luther King Jnr dined there when campaigning in Memphis...
