Worst service ever encountered in the U.S. The food was awful, the skillet potatoes were greasy and slimy and disgusting and the eggs were tasteless and the coffee weak. We asked for tea but were bluntly informed they don't have tea. We left most of the food paid and left. We saw no point in complaining - it would have been pointless - give it a miss!

Quite possibly the rudest waitress / hostess I have ever encountered. The food was no better than average. I would definitely avoid.

We had lunch here and it was OK. Was the only place we ate our entire vacation that didn`t offer drink refills. We found the food average and I felt like the cleanliness of the place left something to be desired.

We read about BBQ spaghetti before visiting Memphis so we were anxious to try it. It was a really good dish...peppers, onions, some BBQ pork, and of course spaghetti. The flavor was something different from anything we had tried and very tasty. My husband had the fried chicken which was spicy and crispy. The turnip greens were very good and something we had never tasted before. This is a great place to try some different dishes.

This was a great restaurant find on Beale St. We had the fried green tomatoes which were excellent. The food is simple but good and the wait staff was friendly. The "host" out front was a great guy-very friendly and fun to talk to. Definitely try this restaurant if you're visiting Beale St.
