We had a fellow coworker recommend this place for lunch. I had never heard of the Green Beetle before then but glad we were turned on to it. Excellent hamburgers and hand cut fries. The Philly cheesesteak was very good as well. I would imagine...More

We've never eaten at The Green Beetle, but we've hung out there several times. I like the atmosphere and the Beetle has a decent beer selection. It can get crowded on a Saturday afternoon - during college football season - so expect a possible wait.

We took a food tour that started at The Green Beetle. Would definitely not had stopped here otherwise because of the location. It is described as the oldest bar in Memphis. It is small and unassuming, very casual with tables outside. We were served fried...More

We went in for a late lunch. Our group was starving and crabby. Excellent fresh made burgers, friendly staff and cool history. The Green Beatle hit the spot.

Came in with friends for trivia night. Best to get there early for a table. It was a lot of fun, and the food was ok. Had the catfish which was good. Buffalo wings were also good.

Great food but the service could have been a little better. Large party and I don't feel that there was enough help

We came here as part of a three restaurant tour with City Tasting Tours. At this stop we had catfish, chow chow, and a fried green tomato. It was so delicious and would deserve a second visit to try more!
