Back in January I took a road trip with a friend to see important sites in civil rights history. That's when I learned of the Four Way, where Dr. King and his colleagues would eat and make plans when he was in town. We didn't have enough time in Memphis back in January, so when I came back with other... More

We arrived at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon hoping to beat the crowds since we had read the rave reviews. There were only 2 other tables seated when we arrived so we were feeling pretty good about our timing. Four of us at the table ordered, 2 turkey and dressing meals, 1 fried chicken meal, and 1 chicken fried steak... More

The neighborhood looks a bit rough, but the food and service are worth it. I ordered the roast turkey dinner with a side of cabbage. Everything was well prepared and tasty, no processed food here. Very reasonable and very generous Potions.

We've been here a couple of times and really want to like it a lot. But really the food we've had here is just so so. A few days ago we ordered the turkey dinner. The turkey was very tender but the gravy they put over it was so salty we had to scrape the gravy off of the turkey.... More

My family and I ate here for lunch and almost needed a nap! The greens, fried chicken and fish were just like grandma's. The fried green tomatoes hit the lick! The cobbler sent us over the moon!

Excellent experience! Visited 6/25/16 and enjoyed it tremendously. As a food connoisseur, I am very aware of what's fresh and what isn't. This was definitely home cooked food from scratch. Each person in my party had a different dish and I was able to taste a variety of dishes. They were all supreme. Good food that I would highly recommend... More

Wow...if any of you had a good ole southern cook for your great grandparent or grand mother you have already sat yourself down at The Four Way restaurant. Absolutely some of the best vegetables, Turkey and dressing, and southern home brewed sweet tea. Martin Luther King jr had his last meal here and Elvis frequented and loved the food also.... More
