This place is definitely off the beaten path for most tourists, and even for most Memphians. It's a 20-30 minute drive from downtown, but if you want to know what semi-rural Tennessee looks, sounds, and tastes like without having to get too far from the city, this is the place to go. From the roaster who greets you at the front door to the creaking floor boards to the lunch counter, this place has got character. There's a good assortment of snacks, drinks, and necessities on the shelves for a day in the park or if you run out of something while camping. The open griddle serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and I've never been disappointed with my choices. The cheese steak omelet is the best I've ever had! If you stop by there for any reason, be sure to grab a homemade brownie from the front counter. They are to die for, and I always grab one for my backpack before my hikes. The bluegrass is fun to watch while your food cooks, and the family that owns and operates it are friendly and welcoming to everyone who walks in. Basically, it's a chance to step away from the city for a minute, slow down, and eat some really good food, but you can still get back to Beale St. in 30 minutes when you're ready to speed things back up.
