Feasting Along Germantown Pkwy East of Memphis
We love this periodic feature in The Commercial Appeal of Memphis called Eat the Street, where they focus on a single road in the Memphis area and detail all the good places to eat along that road, end to end, ignoring all the big chains along the way. Their most recent Eat the Street covers the length of Germantown Parkway, east of the city of Memphis. There’s an amazing variety of interesting options.
Some, like the Germantown Commissary, Corky’s Ribs (a small, local chain), and Gus’s Chicken (another chain, but a small, local one) are familiar. Most are not. Some of those that caught our eye: The Pie Folks and their Slap Yo Mama Chocolate Pie, the two taco trucks, cinnamon roll bread pudding from John’s Pantry, paletas at La Michoacana… we could go on and on. It’s fun to browse.
