The Aracade is still in its original spot where it first served the railroad travelers way back when. It is 93 years old, but has been well-maintained and run for all these years. It serves a great breakfast. I like the sweet-potato pancakes! Open for breakfast and lunch only, be sure to stop in next time you are in downtown Memphis.

My husband and I ate here for lunch on trolly night. It was meh. It is historical and all but it is all dingy inside. Bathroom was pretty dirty. Food was nothing amazing. We ate both of our sandwiches because we were hungry. Wouldn't come back here.

Loved it! We arrived around 10 am for a late breakfast on Sunday morning and we only had to wait 15 minutes for a table (probably because Memphis was in church!). The food was great, the service was attentive, and the ambiance was a step back in time. Prices very reasonable. It is located right on the trolley stop so it is easy to find.

We had to have breakfast here just cause the locals said it was good and Elvis has his own booth. Our waitress was a sight. She was a younger version of Flo. Chewing gum and all. She didnt say kiss my grits but she was pretty close. The food was good but nothing extraordinary. The fact that its the oldest restaurant and Elvis' favorite spot keeps it going. The food is good just nothing to write home about.

I have been driving past this interesting restaurant in Memphis for a while. I finally made it for lunch today.The restaurant was established in 1919 by a Greek immigrant it survived everything and is today run by the 3rd generation. The food is average ,the service is average but it is a great restaurant .Lots of history and character. Check it out if you are in Memphis.The whole area is missed by a lot of tourist that only go to Beal street.Check the area out it has a lot to offer .
