This place beat the restaurant Rendezvous for ribs and pork. It was so good and priced so reasonable. Menus are given out as you enter and you must have a decision on what you want prior to reaching the "order/paying" window, then you are seated....More

Its very small and there is no public transport except taxis etc to it as you arrive from Chicago to early and depart for New Orleans to early for buses to get you there on time to book in luggage. Also very busy.

Station office does not open until 05:45. Small waiting area but sufficient. Isolated area but seems safe. The trip through that area of Memphis is nostalgic with a number of local sights, pubs, and cafes. Watching the trains come in and depart is interesting. It...More

Great old building that's been remodeled. Desperately needs better overnight parking security. Train to and from New Orleans is fun but bumpy!

3 of us caught the Amtrak from Memphis to New Orleans and the service and ease of checking in at Memphis Station was great. Keep in mind no bags over 50pound (23 kg). Place was clean and felt safe.

This place is small but has restroom, information desk and a place inside to wait for a ride. I couldn't ask for anything more. I also saw lots of cabs waiting for new arrivals.

You're in luck! The Arcade Restaurant, Memphis' oldest cafe, is across the street. Open 7am~3pm. Home cooking ~ it was Elvis' favorite breakfast hangout! Enjoy!
