The Majestic Grille has a long history in Memphis. A century ago, it was known as the Majestic No. 1, a theater that played silent films. It has since been renovated and turned into a restaurant, but it still plays old movies on a projection screen so you can enjoy a show while you dine. The restaurant is involved in the arts, and inside, you'll find local artists' work featured. With a full bar, this restaurant is the complete package. Come for brunch and enjoy mimosas and bloody Mary's. On the menu, you'll find flatbread pizzas, burgers, steaks, and pasta dishes.
Dyer's Burgers may not be the most glamorous place to dine in Memphis, but it's survived since it's opening in 1912 because the burgers are out of this world. The burgers come in singles, doubles, and a stack of three patties and three slices of cheese. The secret to making such mouthwatering burgers? They've been using the same grease for the entirety of the restaurant's 100 year history. Add some fries or onion rings and a drink to your order, and you're in for a satisfying lunch.
The burgers are definitely big and juicy, but many customers are drawn by the deep fried onion rings and mushrooms, the live music on Sunday afternoons, and the late evening hours. If you are looking for something besides burgers, try the tamales with chili, cheddar cheese, and onion, the chicken or steak on a stick, or the fried mushrooms. There is a full bar, where beer is a specialty.The atmosphere is casual, with a couple of gimmicks. Customers are encouraged to write graffiti on the walls (and to read it, of course), and to shoot toothpicks through straws so they stick in the ceiling. Lunchtime draws area office workers.
