Simple good food. Good service and clean. The only drawback is that people are allowed to smoke. We were passing through and pleasantly suprised.

On the recommendation of a Shelby County Sheriff deputy, we stopped in for lunch. Mmm, good! Grilled catfish, greens, cornbread and buttermilk cole slaw. Good service and the full parking lot told me this is a popular spot, even for lunch.

Number 1 why are restaurants allowed to have people smoke indoors, is it still the 60's. This is just obnoxious in 2016. The food is about the same as any other fast casual restaurant like Applebee's or similar. No variety no ambience

We stop here each year on our annual trip for the Tour of Duty fund raiser. We look forward to eating here. The beer is cold and the food good. Plus they have lots of room for all our friends.

The food was good, and the wait staff was great, but I was surprised that this was a bar. Half of the cafe was non-smoking, but it was "smoldering," and our clothes smelled of smoke.

While traveling in Memphis we stopped at the Sidecar Cafe for lunch. It was a Sunday so it wasn't crowded. The special of the day was $7 sidecar basket; a burger cooked to order (I had mine cooked medium) and fries. Also, one of our...More
