The 10 Best Restaurants in All of Memphis

Memphis has earned a reputation for exceptional barbecue, so much so that Memphis-style barbecue is one of the most famous styles that can be found in the whole of the United States. However, it should be mentioned that it is home to other restaurants serving up other kinds of food, with excellent examples ranging from burgers to pizza. Due to this, while interested individuals should make sure to check out Memphis-style barbecue, they shouldn’t miss out on the other opportunities that can be found in the region.

Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen

Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen serves up Italian food that has been updated for the times. Its menu items range from homemade gelato to short rib potato gnocchi. Moreover, Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen has an excellent selection of red wines, which should help its patrons wash down the good food that they will be served for a more complete dining experience.

Carolina Watershed

Carolina Watershed is housed in what was once a grain bin, which makes it a rather unusual sight to say the least. Regardless, it is a great location for Southern comfort foods such as fried green tomatoes and sweet buttermilk cornbread. As a result, it is a fine choice for people who want something that will satisfy their stomachs, particularly if they are interested in a farm-side ambiance.

Central BBQ

Central BBQ is one of the barbecue restaurants that make Memphis barbecue great. In its case, it specializes in meat that has been rubbed with dry spices, marinated for a period of 24 hours, and then smoked to perfection.

Chez Philippe

Chez Philippe can be found in the Peabody Hotel. For upscale dining, there are few locations in Memphis that can match it, seeing as how it offers classic French cuisine that has earned it a whole of awards and other forms of recognition over the course of its existence.

Gus’s Fried Chicken

The exterior of Gus’s Fried Chicken might not seem that impressive, but what matters most when it comes to restaurants is their food. Suffice to say that the Gus’s Fried Chicken offers exactly what people would expect based on its name, which is so good that it has been selling fried chicken and other goodies for more than 60 years.

Hog & Hominy

Hog & Hominy is interesting in that it offers Italian food but with Southern roots. The result is a menu consisting of items such as biscuit gnocchi, which should come as welcome news for people who want mouthwatering comfort food.


When it comes to burgers, one of the best Memphis options would be Huey’s, which is known for a couple of things. First, it makes its inch-thick patties by using custom-ground meat from a local meat market as well as a combination secret spices. Second, it encourages its customers to write on its walls, which has provided it with a fair amount of character over the course of its existence.

Mama Gaia

The Gaia in Mama Gaia refers to the Greek personification of the Earth. As a result, it is perhaps unsurprising to learn that Mama Gaia specializes in vegetarian cuisine, which is made using nothing but organic ingredients with the diner’s health in mind. With that said, these limitations haven’t stopped the restaurant from serving everything from burgers to pizzas, which can make for a refreshing experience for those who are unfamiliar with the full range of possibilities of vegetarian cooking.

The Bar-B-Q Shop

The Bar-B-Q Shop is famous for its vinegar-based secret sauce, which is used for meats that range from beef brisket to pulled pork. On top of this, it is famous for having come up with the barbecue spaghetti, which has resulted in a fair amount of attention from food fans.

The Gray Canary

Opened up by a pair of experienced restaurateurs, The Gray Canary shows plenty of innovation, which should come as welcome news for people who want something. Examples of its menu items range from crab claws to smoked fish dip.
