Weekend in Memphis

My husband, son, and I are coming to Memphis this weekend and are hoping to revisit some old favorites and try some new ones. Son is considering attending college in Memphis. Gus's Fried Chicken and Central BBQ (especially the peanut butter pie) made quite a favorable impression on him last time we were here and he'd happily return to either (or both!) on this visit.

We arrive in time for lunch on Friday and I imagine we'll be keeping pretty close to downtown on Friday night (we are staying at the Peabody and going to the Grizzlies game). On Saturday we are completely free after about 3 pm. We will have a car and are open to exploring other parts of Memphis and the surrounding area. Hubby would love some vegetarian options, son is a pretty traditional eater, and no one is looking for fancy.

Given all this, what would be the 'hounds suggestions for our three meals?

  1. De JAVU Downtown at 51 South Main is a really good place with both "regular" food and vegetarian options. They are open 11:00 AM-11:00 PM Friday and Saturday.

    1. re: Ross B

      Is this place appropriate for a female solo diner during dinner?
