To Mary P...what were you expecting when you drove to 1445 Jackson Ave. the Ritz Carlton? Alex's is more than a "dive" Mary, it's a plunge. A plunge into the 1950's with a rustic piece of Memphis history appearing as you emerge. Why don't you go find a brassy fern bar and park your snooty glutes in a metal bar chair and order something off of the Mr. Boston cocktail napkin menu. Alex's Tavern was a sports bar when the term didn't exist. Cold beer, hot wings and, quite possibly, the best burger on the planet make up for any interior design flaws that seem to tweak your peccadillo's honey. Anyone who might make the mistake of letting Mary keep you from experiencing this place for yourself is missing out on a grand time at the "World Famous Alex's Tavern."

The ribs are so tender there is no need for knife, fork or any other utensil unless you are attempting to impress someone at your table. These are to be eaten and not inhaled as I did. Truly delightful and delicious. Will return for more and bring friends.

Pros: Best Ribs in Town

Cons: Could only eat so many in one sitting

Discovered this Jewel one Saturday looking for a place to watch college football, what I found was
THE BEST PLACE EVER TO WATCH A BALLGAME
1. Coldest (non frozen) beer in Town
2. Easily the best Hot Wings EVER - crispy & just enough spice-- no slimy chicken skin here, no nasty greasy breading either
3. Cheeseburgers - Off the Chart Delicious
4. No wine snobs here, Most friendly place you'll go

Pros: Classic in a Wrigly Field, Fenway Park, or Lambeau Field kind of way

Cons: no sushi, no wine coolers, or the crowd that goes with them

Met rocky on a cruise in 1983. Found my way to Alex's tavern on the arm of a perfect gentleman! He treated his friends and customers with care and respect. Service with a smile 24/7! If ever I'm in Memphis, I will surely return for a burger and a smile. Seeing Sonny again would truly be a bonus!

Pros: The owner!

Cons: It came to an end.

Alex's is the all night bar on the bad side of town where you go if you still want to drink.

The place is dirty, and selection is limited (I'm pretty sure there's only two kinds of beer on tap), but that's the experience.

Just be aware of your surroundings, but once inside, you should be safe.

This place is in a bad part of town, but it is very close to downtown. If you close to downtown and not ready to go home it's a nice place to hang out and have a beer, even though the beer comes to you in a plastic cup.

They have a menu but I would never eat anything from it. The kitchen is on the way to the bathrooms and you can see how clean or not clean they keep their facilities.

There is no wait really no matter how busy it gets in the wee mornings of the day, so you should not have a problem staying intoxicated.

I feel that this place definitely serves it's purpose if you are looking for a decent after bar.

No other bar in the southeast will be able to match the atmosphere of this great place. The owner "Rocky" is a singular individual and will treat you like family. This place has been here for over 50 years and like a fine wine has aged with style and only gets better with time. They have the best burgers in towns, and the wings are matchless. Come once and you will be back. Also, without a doubt the coldest beer in town.

Pros: Best Atmosphere, coldest beer, best food, superior service hands down.

Cons: Not the best part of town but who cares?

Arguably the best place to chill and hang out in the Memphis area. The coldest beer in town, great burgers, friendly service, unique atmosphere. As far as I know the place has not been changed since it was opened more than 50 years ago!
