If you’re looking for the perfect place to dine in Memphis during your vacation, look no further than these two delicious restaurants. The Hard Rock Cafe and the Blues City Cafe will allow you to keep up the theme of music in Memphis, while feasting on a delicious meal, Southern style.
Throughout the years, Memphis has been associated with a darker side, delving into gambling, voodoo, murder and prostitution. However, the city is also credited with the invention of sounds like blues, soul and rock and roll, which still fill the airwaves today as you walk down the streets. Today, Memphis is a hard-rockin’ place where you can listen to some hot tunes and enjoy delicious grub.
When you’re “Walking in Memphis” this year, make sure you step into the Hard Rock Cafe for a bite to eat. The historic building is located on Beale Street and has been both a recording studio and a saloon. You’re sure to recognize the building, with its large guitar standing on the side of the building like a beacon. When you come inside, you can enjoy a famous Hard Rock Cheeseburger, perfectly-seasoned fries and the chef’s choice of delectable dessert. You always have your choice of beverage to enjoy as well, as you sit among the wide variety of memorabilia from artists like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Maroon 5 and more.
Or, sit in the same restaurant Tom Cruise did in the film The Firm. The Blues City Cafe is home to an old-fashioned feel with classic seating that will give you excellent views of the crowds on Beale Street. Sink your teeth into the restaurant’s famous BBQ ribs and other Southern favorites, as you sit back and enjoy the sounds of Free World, the local rock band that regularly plays in the “Band Box.” Blues City is also well-known for being the home of the late Chef Bonnie Mack, who would draw in customers with his famous recipes. At Blues City Cafe, you’re guaranteed a memorable time, with great food, great service and great music.
The Doubletree Hotel Memphis Downtown, Holiday Inn Select Downtown and Peabody Memphis are all within a half-mile of both restaurants, so you can be sure to have easy access to your dining choice. Each also offers you great accommodations, such as saunas, hot tubs, pools and onsite bars or lounges.

Memphis is known for its music, but the food there is just as memorable. You’ll be raving about the menus for weeks once you return home. The music may keep you entertained, but it’s the food that will bring you back time and time again.
