Everyone knows that Memphis is famous for its dry-rub barbecue, and foodies of all ages will find plenty to feast on during a getaway to the blues capital. If you leave Atlanta early enough in the morning, you can find yourself at Corky's for lunch. There are also other dining options worth checking out during your trip, including the tasty Automatic Slim's, which features a cocktail menu you won't soon forget.
Here are three restaurants you won't want to miss during your next visit to Beale Street:
1. Corky's BBQ:
With several locations around Memphis, this long-time favorite serves barbecue straight up, the way you'd expect it. Red-and-white checkered tablecloths and service with a smile complete the atmosphere, making this a great spot to take your family. You won't be disappointed.
Located in an alley right across from the famous Peabody Hotel, this famous bbq joint has seen its share of celebrities over the years, and its rich reputation is well-earned. Sidle up to a plate of ribs and you will leave a happy camper. From here, you can easily trot down to Beale Street right after dinner to hear a blues legend in the making.
First of all, any place that is named after a blues classic and features a Snickers martini can't be all bad, right? This is a great spot for a cool date night in Memphis, and the seared duck breast with horseradish cream is decadently yummy.
Whatever motivates your next trip to Memphis, you have no reason to go hungry!
