Memphis in Hollywood

Below you will find the review a friend of mine wrote up after our terrible experience at Memphis. I'll admit it was opening week (or right after) and I'm sure it's much better now, but besides the cool atmosphere (although if you sit outside you kinda feel like you're eating in a shopping strip mall) there wasn't anything else that was great.

Here's a summary of what went down...

"This place is the pits! Went there this Saturday (1/7) night with some friends and had a horrible dinner. Took 2.5 hours, the food was mediocre at best (my fried chicken was totally average), unedible at worst (the steak was literally all fat and the shrimp hadnt been cleaned - yes, poopy shrimp!!!!). Way overpriced and service was awful. Half the things we ordered never came out and half the things we were served were'nt things we'd ordered. When we finally had to go speak with the manager we found there were many tables waiting to do the same. While the manager did remove all of the non-ordered, non-served and unedible items off of our bill, it still didnt make the meal enjoyable. The space was somewhat cool (not amazing), and it has potnential to be good, but its far too early and they defintely havent worked out their kinks!"

I had the poopy shrimp! On top of that, we missed a show we were trying to make!

Someone convince me to give it another shot...
