After seeing this place on tv as a must-visit burger place, my boyfriend and I had high hopes - which is totally our fault. When we got the soul burger, we were not that impressed. It was... fine. Not a truly amazing burger as we...More

Earnestine & Hazel's is a MUST DO night life attraction in Memphis. It was formerly a brothel and nightclub, but now it's supposedly haunted by the ghosts who frequented in its past. They've done an excellent job of keeping the bar's rustic appeal, and there...More

It is what it is. I'm sure that many would not be impressed with this place but it has history. We have history with this bar too. Clarence made us some amazing soul burgers and we sat back and reminisced. The burgers are amazing and...More

The place itself is full of history and myths. It’s definitely a must see place if you are visiting Memphis. The only food option is the soul burger, which is very simple and delicious. Also the place serves many options of extremely cold beer. Simple...More

I've read the reviews, went there and was very disappointed. They cooked on a griddle behind the bar. You get your choice of soul burger or soul burger. 6 dollars for a burger and a bag of golden flake chips in a old bar. I...More
