Anyone has a list of kosher Restaurants in Memphis?
Any favorites or suggestions would be awesome!

Not sure if this belongs here but I ordered from Corky's in Memphis last time the day school there had a fundraiser. The brisket was good but nothing special. The ribs were excellent but the baked beans were amazing!!!  Definitely worth a try and the money goes to tzedaka.

Based on the context of that post, it seems like there was a kosher run.

In the end I went to Holy Cow Kosher Restaurant, below average food at a below average cost. Particularly unimpressive was the few rotten vegetables and heated cucumbers in our falafel.
In addition, the krogers there has a kosher deli with some heated stuff and sushi.

We didn't eat from the local establishments, but for future reference, Graceland is a must, and we went to see where MLK was killed. Also, it sounds strange, but the huge Bass Pro Shop is amazing!

Since this is the master thread,I will add that the Jewish Home has a restaurant inside called Nosh-a-Rye Deli. They have limited hours ( I think 10:45 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. ) However they are temporarily closed due to Covid.

Bass pro shop is amazing, did you go to the top?
Do you think young people would appreciate Graceland enough to justify the cost? (We made due with a picture at the famous music gates)

Didn't spend the $ or time to go the top, but still enjoyed the store immensely.
I was there with DS17 and DS10, and they both really enjoyed it. I know it's not cheap, but I definitely felt that we got our money's worth. We also paid extra to go in his plane which was nice, but didn't pay for the additional tour of the warehouse with his cars and music memorabilia.
