The Liquor Store – Memphis, TN

We received a supplemental magazine in the mail with our monthly Atlanta Magazine that highlighted some spots around the South, with an eight page spread on Memphis.  My dear wife found a picture of a breakfast, served at the Liquor Store, and suggested to me that we might want to check it out. In town […]

Cozy Corner – Memphis, TN

One of the spots on my Memphis barbecue ‘to-do” list (along with being on the 29 BBQ Bucket List and Garden ‘N Gun’s “BBQ Bucket List”) is Cozy Corner Restaurant, near downtown.  We arrived around 6:00 for “second dinner”.  Owned and operated by Raymond Robinson and his family since the late 70s, Cozy Corner is […]

Latham’s Hamburger Inn – New Albany, MS

We actually tried to eat here earlier this month, but it was a Monday when we were driving thru – and they are open from Tuesday – Saturday.  Open for about 90 years, Latham’s Hamburger Inn has been in this location since 1974.  It was then that they moved from across the street, enclosing a […]

The Neon Pig – Tupelo, MS

Burn Co Barbecue – Jenks, OK

One of the fellows that I have worked with for years suggested Burn Company Barbecue as a spot that we had to stop when we were near Tulsa. There is a downtown location and one in Jenks, on the Riverwalk. Only the Jenks location was open on Sunday, so the choice was made for us. […]

Claud’s Hamburgers – Tulsa, OK

On the heels of lunch, just 45 minutes before, we made a quick stop at Claud’s Hamburgers, in Tulsa, as we continued our road trip. Technically – I made a stop, as I was the only one eating at this time.  Claud’s has been serving up burgers since 1954 (in this location since 1965) in […]

Smokie’s Hickory House – Broken Arrow, OK

First lunch on this Tuesday takes us to Smokie’s Hickory House, in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.  We had left Atlanta on Monday afternoon and spent the evening near Conway, Arkansas, on our way to Kansas.  After being on the tollway for a couple of hours, we pulled off in Broken Arrow and went looking for Smokies.  […]
