If you have to be stuck in a town for a work related reason, its best to be stuck in one with great food. Luckily for me, its Ryan's work related reason so I don't actually have to do anything other than eat and shop!
We're in Memphis this week, and I figured why not blog about the places I find that are good to eat. My poor blog needs a few more posts and I can't bake my TWD since I don't think the hotel will let me use their kitchen.
The first place we went when we got all settled in yesterday was a burger place called Hueys. I had the Bluff City Burger which was really really great. It had smoked cheddar, bacon, bbq sauce and onion straws on it. Normally I don't like my onion straws on the burger since they're usually crispy and most of the time it just hurts my mouth so I ordered them on the side. They were great. They weren't crunchy but they had a good texture. Ryan had a salad which he said was really awesome. And the fried pickles were good, but not worth $5.95. Either way, for $25, it was maybe a little high but well worth it seeing as how it was probably the second best burger I've ever had.
This morning we went to a place called Cockadoo's. We were originally after a sub or some sort of sandwich but since we were pressed on time and it was still breakfast hours we decided to give this place a try. Boy were we glad we did! I had the biscuits w/ sausage gravy and man...I think I'm still full and its been 5 hours! Prices were reasonable, even though they think a side order of bacon is 4 pieces of bacon that are about 2inches long each. I'll forgive them for that only because I was so full and the service was really great. Oh, and for my hometown crowd, this place was in a building that looked like Sojourners did, even the ceiling tiles. Cockadoo's was just a little more updated. Here is a menu.
