I stumbled upon this incredible spot while visiting Memphis recently. The restaurant features a school-themed atmosphere with books and other items lining the wall and a school-themed menu served on a tray that resembles those used in your elementary school. The food is absolutely amazing...More

My coworkers invited me to lunch at this place. Never heard of it. I felt so welcomed as I entered the restaurant. The waitress was very friendly and the food was really good. I will be visiting this place again.
