Welcome to Charles Cavallo’s World Famous Cupboard Restaurant!

The Cupboard Sign

The Cupboard Restaurant was established in 1943. It has been a Memphis tradition for 70+ years.

The restaurant was purchased in November, 1992 by Charles Cavallo. Charles owned a successful produce company for ten years prior to buying the Cupboard Restaurant.

After 57 years, on April 1, 2000, the original Cupboard Restaurant moved to its larger, and current, location at 1400 Union Avenue. This location offers the same fine food plus additional seating and parking!
The Cupboard Restaurant has been a favorite of visiting celebrities to Memphis for many years. They also enjoy down-home cooking and are often tired of “road food”!

The Cupboard Restaurant is the perennial winner of culinary awards. The Memphis Magazine restaurant Guide has honored The Cupboard Restaurant with First Place in the “Best Down-Home” category. The Memphis Flyer has voted the restaurant First Place for “Best Down-Home/Soul Food”!
