Great neighborhood bar/restaurant. Small and authentic with indoor and outdoor seating. My go to here is their spectacular burger, but yesterday I tried their fried green tomatoes. Maybe the best in Memphis! They come with a chow chow on top which my wife liked, but I went with just a touch of ranch dressing and heaven opened up.

We stumbled upon The Green Beetle after first attempting to go to Gus's Fried Chicken for lunch. The wait was ridiculous there so we just walked around until we found another spot. We had our 4 and 5 year olds with us. The interior looked pretty welcoming and there were a decent amount of people eating there. My husband and... More

We stayed in a condo directly across the street from the Green Beetle. We researched oldest pubs and this came up so we knew we had to check it out. The first night we grabbed a beer and sat outside. The second night we sat at the bar and watched the Cub's game. Beers were $2 on Sunday! We shared... More

Food was great for lunch! My boss and I had the burgers and fries. Today was burger day and rightfully so. The burgers were moist, tasty and the buns were toasted just right. Good Job Green Beetle!

We stopped here for dinner and had such surly service that we decided to eat someplace else. They were out of most tap beers and the server basically threw the beer at us. Avoid this place

We were so glad we went here. They were the only bar that had the football game on we wanted to watch. They were so nice to us, very accommodating. Everyone loved their sandwiches. The fried catfish was the best! Also, the beef dip, philly beef and blt(with fried green tomatoes) were wonderful! I would definitely go back here.

I have been here twice, both times I got the Beatle Burger for the Tuesday $6 special. The first time I went was July 5th, and we had a great server and very tasty burgers!! One week later I go and had really slow service, and when Ready to pay get told they don't do the $6 burgers anymore. Good... More

I liked this place because it had a much more laid back feel about it. It was helped by the fact it was such a gorgeous evening, & my wife & I sat out on the tables on the street & had a nice meal & a good few drinks. It appears the locals eat here as well, which I... More

Slightly out of the main centre of the town in an area that appears to be gentrifying it's worth a visit. It's very old style with a tiled floor, open front and an appearance of being quite knocked about a bit - note it has no air conditioning. The food was typical bar food but what we had was good...
