“Awesome dive bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is an awesome hang out spot in downtown Memphis. Really neat small bar with a great beer selection. But the best part of The Green Beetle is the burgers. The meat, the bread, the veggies are all outstanding. Together they make one of if not the best burgers I've ever had. This is one of my favorite spots to go and eat and watch games in Memphis.

“Best burger, great casual place to hang out.”

Absolutely best burger in Memphis! Even the bun is delicious. Great friendly place to hang out, have a beer or drink, watch sports or listen to music. Excellent service. Cool downtown building with relaxing atmosohere.

“Good lunch value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

It may seem like a bar from the outside, but stop in for a huge, decent lunch. My favorites are the numerous burger options and the fried chicken salads. The tab is a little on the higher side for the setting (maybe $8-10 a person for lunch), but the food is good and the portions are humongous. You will most likely be taking a doggy bag home with you.
The owner is almost always there and the service is great.

“No tip for you!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

I have been here while visiting 2 years in a row. I keep walking in to a sour puss bartender who wont smile or be attentive. I find this place just average. Average food and one stupid name for a bar as well as an ugly interior with a god awful stain glass piece of green Beatles sitting around a bar. I always get upset when service is terrible. I will never walk in here again.

“Not edible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Meatloaf sandwich was salty beyond anything I have ever tasted and cold, fries were good which is why two stars not one. Wouldn't go again, not with so many other places in the area.
