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

This was definitely worth the drive. Restaurant decent in bad part of town. Food is incredible! My favorites are turkey and dressing, yams, mashed potatoes, OMG greens, cornbread and pecan pie. I eat like its my last meal. Last time i brought a cooler and bought sides for the next day. Yes its wonderful!!!

I was very disappointed with my decision to bring my family here. Based on the issues the restaurant was experiencing with the plumbing system they should have closed down for the day. The food was disgusting & I have no idea how people rate this as soul food. The waitress had an attitude the entire time. And we asked to... More

Out group of eight had lunch starting at 12:30 PM and we expected some difficulty to serve a group our size during lunch hour. But, Four Way Restaurant did a terrific job and the food was outstanding. I grew-up not too far from the Mississippi River and two staples often on our dinner table were fried green tomatoes and catfish.... More

The food is excellent, in my opinion this is the best soul food resturant in the city of Memphis. This resturant has been on the corner of Mississppi and Walker since 1946. When I was a child living in Leymone Gardens in the 1960's it was good and it's good today.
