This is the oldest diner in Memphis. Great food and service. You can even sit in the booth that Elvis dined in.

Historic restaurant downtown where Elvis ate. They have an Elvis booth and you can get his favorite fried peanut butter and banana sandwich (and add bacon).

Dive Bar
“Earnestine and Hazel offers an array of mouth-watering dishes but its best known as the most haunted bar in America as many paranormal activities have allegedly taken place here and this shouldn’t come as a surprise especially after you look at its history. This bar was first intentioned to be a church but then, it became a sundry store, a jazz cafe and a brothel. Today, it is a dive bar and cafe which serves up juicy soul burgers with a side of potato fries. Even though, you might have chills running down your spine the burger here cannot be missed. ”
