Description: A Memphian, a transplant from California, and a South African restaurateur,...
A Memphian, a transplant from California, and a South African restaurateur, all with a love of great food, came together to pursue a common passion: They believed casual cuisine could be healthy, flavorful and affordable. They decided to explore the idea of creating flame grilled, mouth watering entrees using unique sauces. Knowing health and wellness was becoming important to a discerning clientele, they chose to build their entrees around freshly grilled gourmet fish, chicken and vegetables. They created unique recipes, many using the legendary Piri-Piri spice from the coastal regions of Southern Africa. As a result, at Humdingers you can enjoy a mouthwatering array of hot and healthy dishes straight off a fiery grill. We hope you enjoy the taste of our fresh fare and signature seasonings

Good casual dining spot

While we've been here a few times, you need to be prepared to arrive together, as the aisle to wait for friends or family can get crowded. Know that you stand in a line, place your order and are given a number for the server to bring your food. So, if you're not all together, your foods can arrive... read more

Went here with the family on our trip to Memphis. They had something for everyone in our Group, including many gluten free options. The food was cooked to order, and very good. Portions were good. Kids had French fries which they liked.

I have been eating in Humdingers for years, mostly when I get the urge to act as if I am going on a "healthily diet". You can do the good cholesterol, low calorie thing here for sure. There are other items too if you are not so inclined. The Humdinger's Shrimp is really great, but it is fried with a... More

No idea this place even existed when some friends suggested we meet them there. All we knew was that it was seafood. We walked in and had to order at the counter which surprised me. Seafood place where you order at the counter is either terrible or right at the dock and very fresh. Last I checked Memphis does not... More

Had a gift certificate to go there, and wasn't disappointed at all. The crab cakes and sauce were delicious. You have to give it at try.

Every time I am in Memphis, I must stop and to eat here. Everything on the menu is wonderful, grilled and cooked to perfection. The salmon is tender and seasoned. I prefer their sweet potato fries. You can't go wrong here. They do serve a vegetarian option as well as chicken besides the many seafood menu items.

The concept is great and staff is very friendly. Unfortunately, the food just didn't live up to our expectations. Neither of us could finish our meal. Glad we had a coupon so it wasn't a total waste of money. We won't be returning.

Nice variety of eats from simple salads to piri piri chicken. The food is quick, the restaurant is clean- All in all a touch expensive for an order and sit restaurant.. but still one of my favorite lunch spots.

I took a colleague to lunch and really enjoyed the menu selections for fish and chicken entrees. A good selection of side items that are all grilled. Food is great and service quick. Seating can be a problem at times.
