What Our Customers Are Saying

"Good, local restaurant known for plate lunches, breakfasts, and great service. Try the vegetable plate! You can even buy their cookbook."
Mortt via TripAdvisor, Memphis, TN
"Really good home cooking. The chicken fried chicken and catfish were delicious. And the sides were great, especially the fried green tomatoes. My son says this is the best restaurant in Memphis!"

"First Place Award Best Home Cooking/Soul Food"
"Let's get it straight: A crisp, tart fried green tomato or a steaming little mound of fresh field peas or a crispy, buttery, bite-sized blast of cornbread isn't just good eating. These things are minor spiritual experiences. It's part of what defines and renews us. And, now firmly ensconced in its sprawling Union Avenue location, longtime local staple the Cupboard has claimed its place as the city's preeminent meat-and-three palace."

"BEST. CORNBREAD. EVER. And grilled catfish 🙂 I'm a new fan! Look out for Grandfather, who will be there often while he's doing radiation treatments at Methodist, right across Union. He wears a leather cowboy hat. His name is "Mr. Duke" and he drinks black coffee and ice water at about every meal 🙂 Thanks for two great days of lunches! MAJOR YUM FACTOR!"
