If a restaurant does not serve good food, then it is not worth much despite its location, music, or name. Memphis Cafe gets it right and serves up a menu of good late night happy hour. That is key to its success along with being offbeat, eclectic, and Southern. The vibe is jazzy, retro bachelor-pad, and soulful. If you are in the bad habit of only dining in the over-saturated market of chain restaurants, this is your chance to venture out of your comfort zone.
sage pesto, corn salsa, pepper jack cheese (you may add smoked chicken for $1, I didn't though)
memphis mint julep
evan williams bourbon, sugar, fresh mint served over ice
The flatbread was hearty, although if you are very hungry you may want to oder a bowl of their gumbo too.
The mint julep was nicely strong, nothing like the Disneyland version.
