Strong recommendation to popcorn fans of all ages. I won’t leave the Memphis Main St. drag without a bag of the “Memphis Trio”. The Caramel, Cheese, and butter popcorns are excellent compliments of eachother and should not be overlooked. Go try it!

Peanuts are peanuts, but Nurah is one of a kind. Went in to check out the nuts and left with knowledge of both the history of nuts and of Memphis and a great recommendation for dinner.

The owner was the nicest coolest guy. The roaster is THE original roaster and it was done while we were there. Best, freshest roasted peanuts done just right immediately out of the roaster. Great experience. Do drop by, it's a dying art.
