The Warehouse is a really cute venue to bring your family or group of friends for a casual lunch or dinner.
You can get really delicious Italian dishes for a very low price, and you always get very friendly service here.
Also, if you want the meal to be special, you can make reservations to sit in the trolley in the center. That's always a treat.
House of Mews is such a great place because the people here take good care of the animals and they try their best to match cats with the right owners.
They're always in need of volunteers and people who want to adopt. They also host a 5k (and have for a few years now). It's a fun run and proceeds go to the facility and taking care of the cats.
I have had the hibachi (and not the sushi that Amanda described), and it's fairly good.
As see in popular places like Benihana (everyone's eaten at Benihana), the chefs are pretty entertaining when cooking our fried rice. They also come out quickly to take care of your orders, so your food is guaranteed quick and warm.
A good, less expensive to the commercial Japanese steak house.
Not sure where Back Yard Burgers are located, but I think it's limited to the south.
But the burgers here are always awesome and generously sized.
And the service at the Backyard Burger on Park Ave. is the best in all of Memphis.
Skip McDonald's and get a real burger here.
The new central library is beautiful. It's huge, very modern and has the most selection out of all the branches (books, reference, video, DVD, everything).
The children's section is also very enchanting even for an adult like me.
But the downfall: like any library in Memphis, it's basically an after-school day care. Come in the middle of the day or after the kids have gone home. Otherwise, there's just too much distraction.
Xoom Juice makes a good smoothie. They also specialize in assorted juices and other concoctions. But I go for the smoothies.
The prices are pretty much on par with any smoothie place you go to, but the service here isn't cocky or pretentious like other places I've been to.
Plus, the seating here is very comfortable and lounge-like. Also, there's never much of a wait here. It stays pretty quiet.
I love Lambert's. Once, my friend and I flew up there just to go here.
The food is soooo good, but the rolls are better. :) It's really just fun to come and catch these things. I swear...there's a lineage for becoming a roll thrower. Just be careful you don't get an apprentice. They still haven't mastered the roll-throwing technique, yet.
I've loved front page since I was a kid. They serve up the best southern classics with a smile every time.
But the reason I go...is for the free thrown rolls. They're always hot, buttery and delicious. They also come around the tables with really yummy bread pudding and other tasty sides...but thankfully they don't throw them. :)
This place is delicious and diverse. They've got Japanese teppan yaki, Korean and sushi.
I personally enjoy watching my fried rice being prepared in front of me, and the chefs are true showmen.
But if you plan to eat in the teppan yaki section, you may want to make reservations on the weekend. This place gets busy.
Dodge's is where the high school kids used to hang out back in the day.
You can come here for any souther favorite fried food. They have jojo's, pizza sticks, chicken strips. Whatever. All cheap, always hot, and always there.
