The food is good. Reasonable priced and good portions. There is room for improvement:1. We've ordered food at the drive thru both visits and we had to constantly repeat the order. Our first visit an item that we paid for was not in the order. We had made it home and chalked it up as a 3.00 loss. The second visit we again we had to constantly repeat the order. The worker kept interrupting me while I tried to correct where she had errors in it. The was to have 1 cheeseburger w/no lettuce and tomato, she also left off the onion. It was supposed to have been included. So there should be some work on the customer service skills: not having the customer to have to repeat the order and get the order right. 2. The menu marquee needs some work. There are many spelling errors on there, customers have to decipher what they are trying to order. I'm chalking it as mistakes that can be easily corrected, small things like this reflects bad on the business. Sharks serve good food and as in everything there is always room for improvement.
i love fresh market! i feel like i am in the home of my wonderful grandmother, mary hester, way down in schlater, miss.!! i wish, wish, i had been raised on a farm down in the miss. delta, but, the next best thing is fresh market! there used to be a "squash blossom" store on union. i cried when it closed! do you know why it closed? not enough customers! there are so many fat, lazy, stupid, people in memphis on food stamps, that they want to shovel anything into their mouths. the "obama generation", as i call them. go to this store, people! buy their foods. all of them. they are full of the nutrition that God originally put in food. they are not "empty, dead" foods! then, maybe, just maybe, probably, there will be less and less cancer, that is killing the peoples of this fine nation@
My husband and I tried Flight for the first time 6/28/10. First of all, being downtown, parking can be horrific in downtown Memphis. I was incredibly impressed that Flight has COMPLIMENTARY valet parking...star #1. The staff is awesome...star 2. The menu and variety...star 3. The FOOD...last 2 stars! I had the lobster, scallops and shimp. The presentation was definitely first class and of my goodness...there are no words for the TASTE...magnificent to say the least. They also offer a "flight", which is a sort of medley of EVERYTHING they offer. You simply must try this restaurant. You will NOT be disappointed. Oh, by the way, the prices are JUST A LITTLE higher than say, Red Lobster, and the food is a million times better. ENJOY.
Definitely the best burger in town, and the best clam chowder, fried shrimp (either dinner or po' boy), and fish sandwich (not breaded!). And their steak is both reasonably priced and absolutely delicious; the steak sandwich is big enough for two! The ambience is just what you'd expect in a neighborhood eatery...checked tablecloths and eclectic furnishings. There are always a couple of big screen TVs tuned to a sports channel (sound off, titles on) and background music playing. You can eat at the bar or at a table, and attire is pretty much come-as-you-are (within the bounds of decency and Health Dept. regs). And you never know who you might run into...
Out in Raleigh searching for a tire. Decided to stop at Shoney's for lunch. Haven't been to this one in quite a while. Buffet had cabbage vegetable and white bean soups, fried and baked chicken, breaded and baked pork chops (the OTHER white meat), turkey pot pie and baked fish, plus assorted veggies. Fish was STRONGLY fishy tasting, otherwise rest of meats were good. Potato salad was made with DILL relish - NOT a good taste. Three bean salad was going bad. Mashed potatoes were very good, and you had a choice of white or brown gravy. All in all, a so-so meal. I know it was after the lunch hour, but I was surprised at how few customers there were.
We ate there 2/13--Friday, the 13th! Specifically requested pecan encrusted SALMON and explained that this is a special request we do quite often and the result was pecan encrusted catfish! Half way through after realizing this isn't salmon, told waiter and he was apologetic and admitted he didn't listen. but no offer to exchange food. We did not "fuss."Upon leaving, a manager asked if we were given a red envelope for future specials and we said NO--obviously, the waiter FORGOT! Will we go back? YES, but will be 100% sure we have what we requested next time. We have been patronizing Jim's since 1990!
Iam so happy��������that there is now a store where we can buy some hot good tasting real food.����������������. The whole neighbor hood is still talking about the store and the good food����������������that you are serving the community. You are missing popsicles and ice cream. If already have it iam glad. And i am so glad that you are not selling beer����������������. Tha keeps all the drunks from hanging around there. But what i hate is the People'z be begging outside the store. Please stop that it keeps People'z afraid to approach the store. Keep up the GOOD Cooking������������������������������������
i remember when fred montesi opened at this location back in the early 1960's! i was one of the first people into this store, now cash saver, when it opened on saturday several years ago. i love the "cost plus 10%")! i know most of the managers, they having transferred from piggly wiggly. i now have a peg tube (stomach tube), but, i bought collards, and, mustard greens there today to blend in my mixer. just ate them! i can't taste them, but, the prices were great. love how they just re-modeled this store. love this place! takes me way, way back.
I was in Memphis for 50th Anniversary March on Washington celebration (Couldn't get to D.C, but I digress) Passed by restaurant around noon and it was packed. Came back after my visit to Civil Rights museum around 3pm and I was one of only 5 patrons. Got the chargrilled oysters as appetizers. Normally I don't suck on my food in public, but they were that good. Got the shrimp and grits as an entrée. It was great! The only way it would have been better: BIGGER shrimp instead of teeny tiny shrimp. It's worth the visit and its affordable.
Ill admit ive lived in Memphis my whole life & had never been to Uncle Lou's until last year. I saw it on tv time after time & knew I had to try it. I had extremely high expectations & was preparing myself to be disappointed.....I was not!! The hot sweet spicy love is amazing, the chicken is perfectly cooked & juicy, the skin not too crispy. The honey butter biscuits are to DIE for! Fried okra on the side? Yes please! Fried cream corn? YUM! You have not LIVED until youve eaten Uncle Lou's. I will be back as a regular customer.
