The oldest delicatessen in Memphis in a historic building built in 1853. Enjoy lunch and dinner with a view of the mighty Mississippi. Tom Cruise filmed scenes from The Firm here. The restaurant has been in operation since 1976 and we proudly continue the breakfast and sandwich traditions set by Lee Busby When dining here be sure to try a country ham and egg sandwich on a southern style biscuit. We deliver on a retro lady Schwinn bicycle and via the Memphis transportation system. This historic establishment is family owned and cared for by Jon Hodge
