Last Friday the thecafsux gang was craving for some flame cooked meat, and we found plenty in Memphis. Great place for casual dining. This location is quite cozy and seats about 30 people. The walls are lined with portraits of late and great blues musicians and various oddities from postwar America.
The menu is reasonably priced for meat; A hearty meal of solid protein sets you back about $13, compared at maybe $19 anywhere else. The service, by the way, is nonexistent. But only because its self serve, much like at Starbucks. You order your food at the counter, and pick it up when they call you, along with needed cutlery and beverages.
We had a group of 6, and ordered their Elvis sized (read: large) mixed meat platter, which was advertised to feed 5-8. Included in the platter were sausages, chicken, brisket, pulled pork, ribs, any one or two others type of meat I couldn’t identify. All tasted great alone, but was even more fantastic with the supplied BBQ sauce.
At the end of the night we had enough meat left over to take care of lunch for 3.
Personally I’m not a big meat eater and usually stay away from red meats, though I find myself craving the bloody meat of a large mammal from time to time. I’d say this place really hit the spot for me.
Oh, and the music ain’t bad either.
