Every time I've been here for breakfast they are slammed. Service is a little slow but the food is really good. Their French toast was awesome. Definitely worth the wait.

It has been over 15 years since I visited Arcade last, and there have been definite changes to the menu. The Arcade is one of the oldest restaurants in Memphis, and has been branded as a historical site. This was the first place I ever had humus with pita bread as a young teen in Memphis, and they used to... More

Just left the restaurant ordered a wrap my daughters ordered burgers and a club. Smallest club sandwich I've ever see you even though the price was just under $10. The burger was good but nothing special. My wrap was full of a mayonnaise sauce mix that was way too heavy. Because I had to wait 25 minutes for my food... More

Great little diner. Oldest in Memphis. Very cheap. Great breakfast! Biscuits and Gravy were so-so, but everything else was great...bacon, sweet potato pancakes, etc.

The AC was broken, so we and everyone else sweated our way through the experience. But, the service was good and the food was tasty and we got to share our first-ever grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich, so it was all good. We won't likely ever get another, but are happy, nevertheless. We're told Elvis used to sit at... More

On another visit the wife enjoyed an Elvis peanut butter and banana sandwich. An old school Café that t lives in the past but serves good... More

The A/C was temporarily out during our visit, but that did not stop us from enjoying our meal! We tried the famous Elvis Presley sandwich and a burger and fries. Get the peanut butter and banana sandwich with the bacon. You wont regret it.

We got a recommendation for this restaurant from our hotel and we were so glad we asked. I had an omelet that was fantastic and the biscuits were equally good. Old time atmosphere with great food. We will definitely go back!!

This a YOU NEED TO BE place, specially for breakfast because is the oldest restaurant in Memphis. Where Elvis Presley used to go, so you will find the favorite place of the celebrity: peanut butter sandwich. Try the Redneck eggs, they are wonderful! You can sit in the bar and talk to the servers. Its definitely a magic place. So... More
