Enjoyed it

Glad we stopped. We had a big group of 10 and they got us in on a busy Saturday. Food was good, the younger long blondish hair waitress did a great job(sorry didn't catch her name), friendly people. If in the area would eat again.

This was an interesting little stop. We were just looking for something quick as we had driven all day and were planning to just take it back to our hotel to eat. This was a perfect spot for that. We ordered 2 bbq sandwiches and onion rings and fries. The food was nothing exceptional by any means, but it served... More

From the advertisement we read, we expected a Diners, Drive In and Dives meal. I got a fish sandwich and it was 4 fish sticks in a bun. My husband's burger was good but nothing great! We were VERY DISAPPOINTED! Would not recommend or return. The building was cute and the Elvis memorabilia was neat but that's all!

Looked this place, only small, but great food and friendly staff. Lots of Elvis memorabilia on the walls. You can sit in the booth were Elvis use to sit when he ate there. Must try the funnel cake fries, they are to die for.

A favorite hangout of Elvis's as a young boy was what caught our interest, and were told they have the best burgers ever. What's not to love so far? The decor was quaint and fun, with lots of Elvis photos and memorabilia, and there was a plaque on his favorite booth. It was fun to see several of the ETAs... More

Not sure if it was actually the booth that Elvis sat in, but anything associated with the great man is fine by me. The staff were really friendly but the food was just about average typical greasy spoon. If your not a great Elvis fan, give it a miss!!

I went to see Elvis' birth place and the lady in the shop told me that I had to come here and try it out, that it was Elvis' favorite place to eat in town. Well, maybe this was the only place to eat in town back in the day, oh, and Elvis' taste buds must have been dull after... More

I went to Johnnies when I went on a day trip to Tupelo, I loved being able to eat where Elvis had eaten all those years ago
