This past weekend some of my friends and I visited Memphis, Tennessee for the first time. First thing on our ‘to do’ list? Find the best places to eat. Given that we were only there for about 24 hours, we were successful at exploring the food in Memphis.
Cozy Corner BBQ was our first stop off the freeway. Can’t stop in Memphis without trying some BBQ! This place was definitely cozy. It’s one of those places that doesn’t care about appearence but cares about their food. Great service, affordable, friendly, and I felt like I was family. The ribs were so good I licked my fingers to get every last drop!
Later we stopped at Kooky Canuck in Downtown Memphis. We were able to walk from our motel, which I loved since I was able to get a better feel for the city. We wanted dessert and this was the spot. I loved roasting marshmallows and not having the smokey fire smell after. The atmosphere was relaxing and the service was great!
I already want to go back to Gibson’s Donuts! Yes, this is a Bacon Maple Donut! It was perfect! It tasted just like when you dip bacon in maple syrup. It wasn’t too thick so in a weird way it was light and not filling. You need to get more than one, I had my eye on the blueberry and red velvet donut as well. We went on a Saturday morning and it was busy but the lined moved quickly.
Last but not least we stopped at Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken! The fried chicken was perfect. Crunchy, flavorful, and juicy! We were there right at lunch so there was a long wait. After we ate, I didn’t even remember waiting and the food was worth it.
