(901) 527-DYER (3937)

Back in 1912, the late Elmer “Doc” Dyer opened his own cafe and began to develop a secret cooking process for the uniquely delicious world famous burgers we still serve here today on Beale Street. Legend has it that the “secret” was Doc Dyer’s ageless cooking grease. This famous grease , strained daily, has continued to produce our juicy Dyer’s Burgers for almost a century now.

One of “Doc’s” original employees, Mr. Kahn Aaron bought the establishent in 1935 and continued the Dyer’s name and tradition of famous burgers. The Dyer’s legacy continues to this day. Over the years, this famous cooking grease has been transported to our various Memphis locations under the watchful protection of armed police escorts, finally settling here on Historic Beale Street, Home of the Blues and World Famous Dyer’s!

You may not know this but King Tut’s Grill is an Egyptian restaurant and not barbecue restaurant!
While out-of-towners hit the Broadway honky-tonks, Nashville locals belly up to this speakeasy hangout on Division Street. The 30-stool bar retains a hush-hush, Gatsby-and-Governor sophistication, and savvy bartenders stir and shake in Capone-era getups. Try the Juliet and Romeo for slow sipping underneath the vintage chandeliers.

The Pfunky Griddle is a family friendly restaurant that provides an experience where the customers are the cooks. No need to go to the store and buy all the ingredients to make breakfast at home, no preparing pancake batter, and best of all no cleaning up. The Pfunky Griddle does all the prep and clean up and leaves the fun stuff to you!
