Not one that wants to get a tow again. I dont go to memphis if I dont have too... 2 trips ago i had 3 broken windows, 4 slashed tires, and some personal affects stolen... :'(

I love the hogs as much as anyone, but I'll be cheering them on from home this time.

You shouldn't be at the strip joints after 2AM.

Stop at Craig's for the burger on the way over.  As far as BBQ, I live 2 min from Gtown Commissary & drive 20 min to Central BBQ or BBQ Shop.  If you're skeered, stay home & hunker down.

Yeah, I never have been crazy over the Commissar's BBQ, good, but not great. I seem to remember some good pie there, though.

I live downtown and walk everywhere. I get groceries, coffee, out to eat, Griz games, etc, all on foot. Memphis is just like any big city. There's bad parts and there are great parts. Just be smart.  I've never had an issue or met anybody who has. Just because it doesn't look like Mayberry doesn't mean it's entirely dangerous.
For the last Liberty Bowl, we stayed downtown at the Madison.  We walked to and from Beale St at all hours of the day and night, picked up some snacks at a CVS downtown, even stopped at a liquor store near the hotel, all on foot.  I didn't feel unsafe at any point. 

We came again this summer, again stayed downtown, hit Beale, Rendezvous, hung out downtown, and again had no issues whatsoever.  Memphis is a fun town that gets a bad name IMO.

True, got a bet with another guy on a different board, #2LB Craig's BBQ and 2 pies on whether AC comes back next year. I bet he isn't coming back. I'll be happy either way.

I live in Memphis, man its just like anywhere else pay attention to your surroundings and you'll be fine.  Beale street is good, just be gone by 11-12 at night.  Overton square is nice, several good restuarants/bars there.  As far as BBQ, head 10 minutes South down 55 and go right past the state line to Goodman rd in Mississippi.  There hou will fine Memphis Bbq Company, the place is legit!  Westys fudge pie is delish! (Westys is a dive bar). Bass Pro at the pyramid is crazy nice.  Several nice places downtown to stay. Come and enjoy.

Stay out east at Poplar and I-240 or further EAST down Poplar if you can Marriott Memphis EAST, Embassy Suites, Marriott Courtyard...... there are also 7 or 8 hotels in the Germantown city limits now...  There are dozens of Hotels in East Memphis .   There are a lot of GREAT Restaurants out East also,... Season's 52, Capital Grill, Ruth's Chris Steak House, Owen Brennan's, Grisanti's Italian at the Embassy Suites, Germantown Commissary, Salsa, and ON and On and ON....

And oh, there a thousands of ARKANSAS Fans that live in and around Memphis and we are not getting SHOT, MUGGED, or otherwise bothered....

Well said. Visiting a metro area requires knowledge of where & where not to go(i.e. street smarts). There are great suggestions in this thread. The negative nellies will miss out on a good time.

If you live downtown I can't believe you didn't suggest The Majestic Grill, Felicia Suzanne's, Pearl's Oyster House. Memphis is a great town for some of the best food around. There is a lot of great local owned places to eat, with amazing chefs.  Just have to know where to look.

In the Cooper Young area not far from the Bowl is another place Sweetgrass. The shrimp and grits are fantastic!

So many great local restaurants it's hard to name them all. Memphis has it all.

Memphis is fine in the Tourist District and does have some sketchy parts of town. I not been in Memphis at night in 25 + years.  We generally take a day trip over there ever other year or so when we are in Monroe County for the Holidays or Summer Break.

I ate at interstate BBQ once and it was complete garbage. Frozen stuff in a box from Walmart heated up would've been better. In fact it was so bad...we honestly thought it may have been racially motivated...lol no joke. Cause I've never had BBQ that awful, and that places reputation is impeccable...it just didn't make sense that all 12 people got food that was close to inedible when a place like that is supposed to be one of the best in the United States.

Last time I was traveling through Memphis we stopped at Cozy Corner...I had never even heard of it. Now that was some good stuff. If I were to venture back through Memphis that's where I would stop for BBQ.

  rib tips are the best.  Go there for lunch, not after dark.  One & only BBQ is very good.  Elfo's in Gtown, Villa Castrioti in Cordova are great for nice dinners.

Rendezvous, Gus's Fried Chicken, Interstate BBQ, Public Eye, Memphis BBQ Company, Uncle Lou's, Tom's BBQ, Pancho's--love the cheese dip.

My favorite place on Beale is Rum Boogie.

Peabody Place has gotten a bit run down.   The Embassy Suites in Germantown was recently renovated.  Parking at the stadium you should be fine.

Gotta check out the new Bass Pro in the Pyramid.  Very cool.

Texas de Brazil is excellent. Butcher shop is very good as well. For burgers, Huey's is a good choice.  Visit the bass pro shop at the pyramid for walking around indoors or wolfchase mall. Also several eating places around that area.

I was just going to mention Hueys,that place is great.  II also like Soul Fish Cafe and Local on the Square.

I will join the group saying I have been to Memphis more times than I can count and never had any problem at all.

Also - I do like the Rendezvous.  I have eaten there many times and only had one bad experience.  If you haven't been, you should go.  Get a sausage cheese plate and a slab of ribs.  My kids (12 and 14) love it also.  Lots of great places to eat - most all of which have been mentioned.

Anyone coming to the game probably wouldn't venture as far east as Arlington, but if you did it's worth going to Vinegar Jim's.  Home cooked food; great cornbread and fried green tomatoes.

You know, ALL of the Memphis bashing gets really old, really quick.  I have lived in the Memphis area for 30 years, and I have NOT ONCE had any type of problem ....  It's just like any other major metropolitan area..... If you go to a high crime zip code, you might have some trouble. 

Stay out east at Poplar and I-240 or further EAST down Poplar if you can Marriott Memphis EAST, Embassy Suites, Marriott Courtyard...... there are also 7 or 8 hotels in the Germantown city limits now...  There are dozens of Hotels in East Memphis .   There are a lot of GREAT Restaurants out East also,... Season's 52, Capital Grill, Ruth's Chris Steak House, Owen Brennan's, Grisanti's Italian at the Embassy Suites, Germantown Commissary, Salsa, and ON and On and ON....

And oh, there a thousands of ARKANSAS Fans that live in and around Memphis and we are not getting SHOT, MUGGED, or otherwise bothered....

Give it a REST..... :razorback: :razorback: :razorback:

I live in the area as well. I won't give it a rest until they actually do something about the crime rate. Yes there are nice restaurants and hotels but I've managed hotels out east and they have crimes there as well. I had my own car broken into right across from St. Francis hospital at my former hotel. That area is notorious for car breakins and theft. Otherwise it is a nice area. The only areas of town where I've previously worked managing hotels and NOT had a crime problem was Southaven and Millington.

Just park next to Aaron Peters. He told a story on the radio this week about being the only one who didn't have a window broken in the parking lot last time we played in the Liberty Bowl.

Born and raised in West Memphis, Arkansas. Was at the 2010 Liberty Bowl. Spend a lot of time in Memphis, all over town. Never had a window broken, never been robbed, never had a gun pulled on me. I'm 28 so maybe I'm overdue?
