Our experience was good, but not stellar. Our food was extremely slow in arriving, and the quality wasn’t great. For the price and time we waited, I expected better.

Still closed. Neon sign is still on, but no one was home. Went looking for breakfast in a Saturday morning, but was disappointed to see it wouldn’t happen here.

This place is closed until further notice. They have not done a very good job of updating the various social media sites. Luckily we found Automatic Slims.

The Court Ave location is temporarily closed. The Poplar Ave location 18 miles away is still open. However, the River Time Market and Deli next door is excellent!

We ordered through Grubhub, and the food was delicious! The locals who were working in lobby of hotel when we had this delivered said they were very jealous - that it was one of their favorites! There was more food than we could eat and...it was all delicious!More

Blue Plate was closed. I didn't get to eat there, was very disappointed about that. Had a great time in Memphis. It would have been better, if it had not been for covid-19.

Ate here on a Sunday in December. Had to wait 10 mins for a table to come about, busy restaurant. Server was friendly and helpful. Food was good. I ordered the Country Fried steak, hash browns and poached eggs. All were good, although the portion...size was small. About $14 to eat and have e a coffee so not too bad.More

Very rude front staff member. Her immediate attack on our 2 year old not wearing a mask and then refusing to allow entry because he is not able to keep a mask on while waiting for a table was very upsetting. I would not recommend...this restaurant to other families with young children because of this. Literally the worst experience I've ever had at a restaurant.More

Tables socially distanced. Pleasant atmosphere. I had ham and eggs with hash browns and toast. The food was okay, nothing special. Service was good. It wasn't too busy when I showed up for an early breakfast.
