Kooky Canuck Reviews & Ratings
This place is a fun place to bring a group. We had a group of ten and ordered the 6lb. cheeseburger. It came with all the fixings. They brought us as many fries as we needed, and we attempted to take down the burger as a group. We had four men and 6 boys in our group and we could not finish all of the food. We called ahead so the burger was almost done by the time we got there. The staff was great, and most importantly, we had a great time! We also ordered two appetizers (fried pickles and fried cheese). The pickles were good, but the fried cheese was amazing.
Rather emotional to see this home and understand some of the life of the King of Rock n roll. Very well done with an explanation of the mansion room by room recorded on a tablet. Unfortunately it was raining the day we were there and couldn't explore the grounds. It is a great place to go.
We stopped in for dinner one night while we were in town. It was not very busy and we were seated right away, by a window great for people watching. Our server was friendly and efficient. We both got burgers, which were okay. The fries were a little soggy. If I come back to Memphis I will probably try somewhere else to eat.
LONG ALERT: I've been to this location twice. Ordered the fried green tomatoes both times. Both times they were overloaded with breading. And the tomatoes were red. I think it was old too. This time I sent them back BUT I also spoke with the manager on duty. Let me tell you, when he brought them back, they were a MASTER PIECE. The chef on duty nailed it. Absolutely delicious. I am only sorry that they were soooooo good, and pretty, I couldn't take an after picture. We devoured them. Also had turkey burger. Again the chef nailed it. Seasoned to perfection. I apologize for not providing an after picture. We just dug in. It was so good, I danced in my seat all while listening to some random music that I cant even remember now.
Awesome food, really good. Poor service. We had a large party but had to wait almost an hour and 20 minutes to get food. I ordered appetizers and still had to wait that long. No excuse for that in any professional eatery. Everyone was happy with the taste of the food and the manager gave us a couple of free desserts. Rating is saved from a one star by food quality.
