Was in town for a conference and decided to give this restaurant a try for lunch since it was across the street from my hotel. Overall, nothing really positive or negative. I got their homemade gyro and the sauce was a little funky; wouldn't get it again. Fries were good.

These burgers are the best, we had the Holy Smoke, it was hot and juicy, I had the bacon and blue cheese, I can truly say I have never had a better burger, you must go here if you visit Memphis

Travelling solo for business and stopped in for happy hour. Really glad I did. Sonia was the most awesome server..made me feel welcome, shared her knowledge of the city. I would go back anytime. Great happy hour.

I went here for dinner. I ordered a strawberry mojito which was served in a giant mug. It was fun. The food wasn't as exciting. I ordered the maple sirloin based on a recommendation. It was chewy. I couldn't eat it. We also order poutine and fried green tomatoes. The appetizers were nice.

Food not as "northern" tasty as expected. The tweens left most of it on their plates. Not very authentic but a pleasant experience.

I was in Memphis and met High School Friends for lunch at Kooky Canuck on Germantown Parkway. The Prime Rib sandwich was excellent but Joseph's service was spectacular. A great employee. We were never rushed to leave and got to sit and enjoy catching up.

Menu had a large variety of selections. Sonia our waitress was very informative and explained some of the meals that we didn't know about. She was very attentive with our drinks and the meals were delivered very promptly. Sonia attention to us really made the evening enjoyable to us all.

Wandered in for dinner whilst staying at a local hotel different menu to the usual burger sandwich offering which was a treat would highly recommend the Cat Fish blackened is a good way to go. Wine for under $20 a very nice addition surprise highly recommend it

Great food and huge drinks, excellent price!! Our waitress Sonia was super nice and friendly. You have to get the sweet potato fries with brown sugar - best I've ever had!

Thank Lauren E
