All the Huey's in Memphis are overall good, but Midtown's the best. Best wait staff, not the busiest, and most convenient location to other Memphis happenings (except of course for downtown).

The food at all of them is great. My personal favorite is the west coast burger.

Service isn't necessarily fast, but the environment is moreso for relaxing, watching sports on TV, drinking beers with friends, etc.

Overall, a good place to go for a casual drink or meal.

Huey's is a great place to grab some food during a game or just for a quiet comfortable dinner out with friends. They have bands on Sunday nights, which can be pretty loud. If you're into cover bands then they're pretty good in general, but if you just want to grab some food then try Huey's another night. The bar has a wide selection. The drinks aren't killer in themselves, but with the amazing burgers they go pretty well. The cheese fries are a must! Enjoy!

Nothing like a Huey burger, basket of fries a cold Busch longneck! I was born and raised in the Memphis area and consumed many of the mentioned products and stop at Hueys every time I'm in town. It's definitely the best burger in Memphis and the second best burger I've ever eaten. You'd have to go to Port of Call in New Orleans for a better burger

Really great burgers--always. Red beans and rice good too. Bottomless tea and soft drinks. Cute ambience, but the toothpicks in the ceilings are tacky--one fell in my plate once, and I asked for and got a replacement meal, but you hate to be on guard for falling toothpicks.

I have lived in Memphis for 11 years and have been to all of the burger places. The burgers at Huey's are very good, but I wouldn't necessary say they are the best. The place is usually crowded and cramped, and the service is S-L-O-W. Toothpicks in a ceiling does not make a great burger!!!

Huey burgers are so good that I asked my wife to marry me after I'd downed one. The 17 beers might have helped, too. Great music on Sundays, great burgers all the time, and a honest to god slice of Memphis culture. Be sure and try the tamales, too.

If your down and worried, don't worry Huey's is open late and near you.

Of course, their are Huey's all over Memphis, but I have a special place in my heart for the Midtown Hueys and the Downtown one (closest to my apartment).

Every Huey's has a friendly staff, cheap and tastey food. Also Huey's serves the coldest beer in Memphis (maybe).

I always leave happier than when I walk through the door.

A native Memphian, I currently live in Europe, and Huey's is one of the first places I visit whenever I return home. I have travelled extensively throughout the US and Europe, and I have never had a better burger anywhere! I sure do miss them when I am away, and I never miss a meal there when I return to my roots.
The atmosphere is about as "down-home" Memphis as you can get! From the graffiti, written over the years on anything that stands still long enough to the toothpicks in the ceiling, it doesn't get anymore real than this, folks!

.

There was once a time when all the hype concerning Huey's was true. I can't say this is the case now. The service tends to be bad and the quality of the food has dropped off considerably. If you've never been, the novelty of shooting toothpicks into the ceiling with a straw may appeal to you, but there's not much else to recommend it. Do yourself a favor and try somewhere else. You'll get better quality food, service, and probably save some money too.

When I moved to Memphis six years ago, I was told not to miss going to Huey's. Okay. Now I'm asking, "Why?" The food is almost palatable, but certainly nothing to crow about. Over priced for the quality of the meal.

Service at Hueys (all Memphis locations) is unbelievably bad. Two examples: 1) At the one on G'town road in Cordova - major breaking news story..people were going to restaurants just to watch the events on tv...employees wouldn't turn the tv on to what everyone wanted to see because "only the manager can turn the tv". Needless to say everyone left. 2) At the one in Midtown - A group of twelve unable to get Hueys to push tables together. "It's against policy". Once again, we left. I've eaten at Hueys twice in the last year and both times the food was awful.

First the burgers and ambiance are great. But, the music is too loud. I dont get it. The place is set up as a restaurant/bar. It would be a great place to meet people. The only problem is you can't even hear the waiter take your order! Im going there tonight I love the place. But, I'm bringing earplugs.

Go to Ernestine and Hazels. The smell of worsteshire will knock you down as you hit the door. A greasy masterpiece! Also, Dyers on Beale. what can you say about a place that uses grease that is close to 90 years old?? Bizarre...but better that a Big Kahuna burger. Right Samual L. Jackson? As to Huey's? Sold-out to the franchise bug a long time ago and by doing so, quality has suffered. There was a time though....

After searching through the city of Memphis for the best burger, I would have to say that Huey's does not even deserve a spot on the top ten list. This burger is not far from something you can buy at Applebee's--charred outside, soft inside, like the cooks have no idea how to evenly cook a burger. Everyone needs to stop going to Huey's and find a better place.

This local favorite with Multiple locations has the best burger in town. The onion rings are also the best beer battered rings I have ever had. The graffiti signed walls and tooth picks in the cieling add to this resturant and bar great atmosphere.

After a long night (and morning) on Beale St., Huey's has a delicious bar menu. My girlfriends and I traveled from Chicago (so we know good burgers) for a weekend in Memphis, and ended up at Huey's for dinner both nights! The patty melt is to die for. I will be back to Memphis just for Huey's food!

I love Huey's. The world famous Huey burger is THE best, no contest. Hueys is a great place to hang out with a very diverse crowd. My boyfriend is 28 and I am only 20 so a lot of places we cant go together (bars) but Hueys gives us a fun atmosphere with no age limitations where we can enjoy good food (he can enjoy a beer) and we can hang out with our friends. We can even bring our kids with us.

Order a burger. Its juicy, habit-forming and a sure cure for a hangover. The fries are perfectbarely crisp on the outside, soft and warm in the middle. A close second is the stacked club, accompanied by the same perfect fries. And do yourself a favor, dont be tempted to try the old toothpick in the ceiling bit. Its just not going to happen.

Besides serving a great burger and fries, Huey's offers a fun neighborhood bar atmosphere where you can listen to an eclectic selection of music and have a great time with friends. Sunday night live music makes it the place to be. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. They have my Heinekin on the table by the time I walk across the room. Who could ask for more?

I have eaten at Huey's several times and quite frankly have found their food to be only mediocre at best. I go there sometimes with the expectation of maybe finally experiencing the great burgers I continue to hear about. I think that all the hype is what continues to fuel their popularity. I am also concerned about all those toothpicks in the ceiling. It is only a matter of time before one falls out and injures someones eye.
I would rather go to Hardees for a burger. They are just as good if not better and you don't have to wait so long.

Editorial from

Huey's multiple locations in Memphis (and one in nearby Southaven, Mississippi) corner the market on some of Memphis' best burgers. For 40 years, this casual diner has served juicy homemade beef burgers topped with anything from pepper…
