Wow...if any of you had a good ole southern cook for your great grandparent or grand mother you have already sat yourself down at The Four Way restaurant. Absolutely some of the best vegetables, Turkey and dressing, and southern home brewed sweet tea. Martin Luther King jr had his last meal here and Elvis frequented and loved the food also.... More

This was definitely worth the drive. Restaurant decent in bad part of town. Food is incredible! My favorites are turkey and dressing, yams, mashed potatoes, OMG greens, cornbread and pecan pie. I eat like its my last meal. Last time i brought a cooler and bought sides for the next day. Yes its wonderful!!!

I was very disappointed with my decision to bring my family here. Based on the issues the restaurant was experiencing with the plumbing system they should have closed down for the day. The food was disgusting & I have no idea how people rate this as soul food. The waitress had an attitude the entire time. And we asked to... More

Out group of eight had lunch starting at 12:30 PM and we expected some difficulty to serve a group our size during lunch hour. But, Four Way Restaurant did a terrific job and the food was outstanding. I grew-up not too far from the Mississippi River and two staples often on our dinner table were fried green tomatoes and catfish.... More

The food is excellent, in my opinion this is the best soul food resturant in the city of Memphis. This resturant has been on the corner of Mississppi and Walker since 1946. When I was a child living in Leymone Gardens in the 1960's it was good and it's good today.

Food was great. Probably the coolest place we ate during our 7 day stay in Memphis (and we went to some pretty cool places!) Had some fried chicken and catfish, followed by some of the nicest Lemon Meringue Pie we have had in the states! Great atmosphere. All the staff and customers were friendly and we had nice chats! The... More

Good southern food, plenty of choices, but the best part is the history. We met the owner as he walked around telling stories about the restaurant and the neighborhood. The people working and eating there are great resources if you want to learn more about the civil rights struggle in Memphis. This is an important part of the history of... More

Very tasty home cooking - what they call soul food in the Delta, I am told. The catfish was the best we had in over a week of Delta restaurants. The cooked cabbage, pickled tomatoes, mac and cheese and beans were all flavorful and perfectly seasoned. The best part of the visit was the owner who talked to our group... More

I was surprised, but the food was good. Almost like home cooking. Best meal I had in Memphis. Green and cabbage, fried chicken were all good selections. Had to wait longer than would like to have.

Having eaten out every night for the past two weeks road tripping America this place reminded us all of eating around a family table. Hearty home cooked meals with no frills, bells or whistles. I like a restaurant with a small menu. It means more thought and time has gone into each one. We really enjoyed our meals with the... More
