We went there for dinner as a group. They have a nice back room to handle large crowds with all kinds of critter heads (ram, bear, duck, etc.) so the atmosphere is great. I ordered a Fat Tire (made in Colorado yeah!!!) and it was delivered in a 39 oz frozen mug. For my meal I ordered the 6 oz... More

We are on a three weeks vacation Deep South. I had promissed myself not to leave the States without having swallowed a genuine hamburger. We were lucky to find Kooky Canuck in Memphis. The staff was very understanding, she advised me about the size of what I was to order. So the Gostriver hamburger was great, but just enough to... More

We didn't realize that this was featured in Man vs Food. We are not big eaters so we stuck we a salad and such for lunch. Staff was friendly and professional.

The Kooky Canuck was awesome. I ate their poutine and the rest of my group had barbecue egg rolls, pork nachos, and fish and chips. All of it was amazing and I would definitely eat here again.(Sonia was our waitress and she was as great at the food!)

We found this on a long road trip back to Arkansas. We were tired and hungry. My kids had the mac-n-cheese, I had the four cheese burger. The food was excellent. Our son dropped his dessert on the way out the door, and they very quickly replaced it for him. I would definitely come here again.

Ducked in here on the way to the NCAA games at FedEx while it was pouring! Pleasantly surprised by huge wine pours (12 oz. for $6.99!) and good food. Had the maple syrup marinated steak and my friend had the prime rib sandwich (the fave of our waitress) and perogies for an appetizer. Great stop when you need a break... More

We just walked in and got a table within minutes. Our waitress was so nice and didn't skip a beat through out meal. The meals are HUGE and oh so good. My cocktail matched. We liked that it was fast, not too loud, had enough room and the service good... We loved the size and taste of the burgers!!!! Recommend... More

Monster-sized beers, even bigger desserts, and just about the best fish and chips I've ever had all combine to make Kooky Canuck's one of our favorite eating experiences during our weeklong road trip. We'll definitely be back!

While visiting Memphis you will find many great barbecue spots to eat. If you want to take a break from that, try Kooky Canuck. It's fun, noisy and the food is great. They offer a huge burger and enormous ice cream sundae.
