Typical diner fare. Good for a quick lunch or breakfast. Just average, I ate here twice. Once for lunch and once for breakfast.

We went here several times for breakfast during our stay in Memphis. Food was always good. Service was excellent (thank you, Sandra) and they opened at 8am, so we got a hearty meal and were able to hit the tourist trail early in the day.

After the advertising they do about their BBQ ribs; the awards they've won, etc., I wasn't impressed with their food - it was common steam table fare, and the ribs were taken from a large pan, stuck under a broiler for a few minutes and served. Not my idea of prize winning BBQ ribs...

I didn't think this place was that great - although the guys I was with loved the big portions. The food is kind of greasy and not really that special. It's fine, it's just not better than anyplace else. Also, I didn't think the service was the great - our waitress was a little unfriendly.

We came here for breakfast. It was pretty crowded so it seems like a lot of people like it. The waitress was attentive and very friendly. Everyone enjoyed their food. Prices were average.
