Nothing Kooky about the food!

This downtown Memphis venue is not just another place to get a burger with any and all the toppings. Menu offers plenty of options, serving portions are ample, and atmosphere is campy and fun.

This place was right around the corner from The Holiday Inn and across from The Peabody Hotel.There was a moderate crowd. The place is very nicely set up and clean. We were seated quickly and placed our order. The food was great. My wife and I had a Memphis Burger which had a fried egg and cheese on it mmmm,... More

We didn't want the buffet for Sunday lunch at The Peabody and the hostesses highly recommended this restaurant right across the street and are we glad they did. The menu was extensive and we found several vegetarian options which we ordered. When the food came it was well presented and delicious. Be sure to have lunch here right after watching... More

It's an average restaurant... I find the reviews here quite overrated. During my visit, they had run out of soft drinks, so I had to have my burger with ... orange juice. The meal itself was good, but I was expecting something more. The place may look "canadian", but as far as I remember from the year I spent in... More

The food was good with a predominate American grub, but a nice mix of Canadian dishes and southern specialties. The atmosphere is laid back, and decor is hunting lodge-ish (if you don't like mounted animals watching you eat, probably not the place for you). Server was friendly, and prices very fair.

I had some of the best food here! The deep fried pickles are mind blowing! I was craving these so badly!!! The Blue cocktails (Maid of the Mist?) Was one of the best cocktails I have ever had! Not to mention there was so much in it! Great value!

My grand daughter wanted to go to an unusual restaurant to celebrate her 5th birthday. The downtown location of this restaurant sure met with her approval as well as the other members of the family there to mark this special occasion.

Nothing better than a hot cookie served in a miniature cast iron skillet with ice cream on top after eating a top notch juicy burger. Enough said.

I had the gyro platter, a Quebec specialty. Was just OK, nothing special. Better gyro everywhere in chicago. My wife had a prime rib sandwich. NOT GOOD. It was supposed to be hot and it wasn't. The meat itself had no flavor at all. It was a big sandwich but if you did not dip it into the ajuis, bland.... More
