Memphians who work downtown have been lunching here since 1918. This is the best of Southern home cooking. Plate lunches offer standards such as fried chicken, chicken and dumplings, catfish, greens with hot sauce, black-eyed peas and wonderful cobblers for dessert. Sweet tea (iced) is the authentic drink with Southern food and your best bet here. No beer or wine is served. The decor, like the food, is designed to be homey and comforting in the middle of a stressful day. Works by local artists hang on the walls, adding to the feeling of being in someone's cozy home.
