Bartender was awesome. He (davin) gave us a history of the restaurant. We went in to have a cookie in a skillet. I would recommend saving room for one and sharing it with 2 to 3 people.

Davin was a phenomenal bartender. He was friendly and informative. I really felt welcomed and enjoyed the stories he told about the food and beverages. We had the cookie in a skillet.

I went with my mom and aunt and we weren't that hungry, so we got the cookie in a skillet. So yummy! We sat at the bar and the bartender was friendly and talkative. I wish it was bigger inside!

A friend forced me to go to the Kooky Canuck. I wasn't sure how I felt. Entering, it looks a bit cheesy but once you get past that, it's a great place. We ate at the bar, while Ethan took care of us. He was awesome. Ethan convinced me to have the Young Burger. It was a truly great burger.... More

This place was great, make sure you are very hungry or share something with a friend. Great staff. Try the peach cobbler with ice cream

This is my third time dining at this restaurant and everything was excellent again. We had just seen Motown the Musical and decided to stop here to eat.

Was in Memphis for four days and decided to try this restaurant for lunch. I ended up eating lunch there all week. The food was great and the prices were reasonable considering the other restaurants in the area.

We haven't seen Poutine since we were in Canada, that's why we chose this place to eat. We had that, which is French fries smothered in gravy with cheese curds..yum! I had the Memphis' Best burger with Mac n cheese and it was delicious.
