Memphis is experiencing a wave of new — or renewed — epicurean offerings right now. From baba ganoush to burgers and pastries to porterhouse steaks, these new must-try eateries are just the beginning of Memphis’ culinary resurgence.Read More
News from Overton Square
– Try the Good Night/Good Cause from Hopdoddy. Yes, it’s a chain, but $1 of proceeds for this particular burger (with cheddar, caramelized onions, caffeinated BBQ, jalapeños) are donated back to the Stax Academy.
– The Pub Burger at Local Gastropub (Overton or Main Street) is good for $6.99 (with fries) during lunch and all day on Mondays. Nice.
– Babalu Burger from Babalu is available at their Overton Square and East Memphis locations, and people really love it.
– The Southern Gentleman from Belly Acres in Overton Square comes with greens, bacon, and sweet potato.Read More
"If you have a milkshake and I have a milkshake and my straw reaches across the room, I'll end up drinking your milkshake."
Disgraced New Mexico Senator Albert Fall uttered that line during congressional hearings about the Teapot Dome scandal in 1924 — and to be truthful, he was explaining the concept of oil field drainage. But his analogy was immortalized in Paul Thomas Anderson's 2007 film, There Will Be Blood, and the lines have been seared in my brain forever since.
I love milkshakes. Especially alcoholic milkshakes, which, these days, are available in eateries and bars all around Memphis. I've gotten boozy on classic milkshakes at the Arcade Restaurant Downtown, and on 1,000-calorie S'mores- and Nutella-flavored concoctions at newer joints like Railgarten and Hopdoddy Burger Bar in Overton Square. And this Labor Day weekend, I'll be celebrating the unofficial end of summer by using my trusty Waring blender to whip up my own.Read More
I would recommend Hopdoddy Burger Bar Midtown to all burger lovers/food lovers and residents just looking for a cool spot to hang out and have great drinks. They have a patio for your spring/summertime adventures and if you're not really looking to eat burgers they have a turkey burger sent from GOD and two vegan burger options for all against using anything animal for their personal consumption. Hopdoddy Burger Bar has thought of it all! Visiting will not only please your taste buds but give you a dope experience.Read More
A new Midtown burger bar is opening its doors.
Monday is the first day for Hopdoddy Burger Bar in Overton Square.
It's located at the corner of Cooper Street and Madison Avenue--taking over the former YoLo spot.
They specialize in burgers, but also serve fresh salads, handspun milkshakes and offers a full bar.
Business hours are Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 12 a.m.Read More
Though Hopdoddy Burger Bar is based in Austin, Texas, it's doing its best to make its soon-to-open Overton Square location feel Memphis-y.
The word "local" adorns the restaurant's exterior, and Hopdoddy brand manager Erin Fohn made a point to highlight the numerous menu items that will be unique to the Memphis location — a breakfast burger, a set of gourmet french fries, some milkshakes and multiple mixed drinks.Read More
Doors were open in preview of Hopdoddy's Monday (April 2) opening.
On the menu will be two items being launched in Memphis: the Lil' Doddy and the All-Day Breakfast burger. The former is a smaller patty that comes in a single or double, served with American cheese — a classic burger, says Erin Fohn, Hopdoddy's brand manager. The latter features a patty mix of sausage, beef, and ham with a potato "hay" for crunch, topped with a scrambled egg patty.
Another thing to note is Hopdoddy's charitable partner through its Goodnight for a Good Cause program. They have chose Stax Music Academy to be the recipient. One dollar of every Goodnight Burger goes to the foundation.
Hopdoddy offers counter service. Order at the counter, then your meal gets delivered to you. One thing that separates Hopdoddy is that a table must be available before you can order and you get samples in line (!).
Hopdoddy Burger Bar, the creative, from-scratch burger and beer joint that welcomes guests with positive energy and a lively atmosphere, opens its first Memphis location on Monday, April 2 at Overton Square.
Hopdoddy Burger Bar works directly with farmers and ranchers around the country to source the best ingredients available, giving guests one satisfying bite after another. From butchering and grinding meats daily to freshly baked buns, Hopdoddy makes burgers worth standing (in line) for. In addition to burgers, Hopdoddy serves fresh salads, handspun milkshakes and has a full bar.
Hopdoddy Burger Bar opens April 2 at the corner of Cooper and Madison, taking over the former YoLo spot and bringing its popular burgers from Austin to Memphis.
The small Texas chain announced a year ago that it would be coming to town, joining a roster of new burger spots that include Farm Burger, the reopened LBOE, Farm and Fries, a couple of new Sear Shacks and others to come.
Hopdoddy serves high-quality beef ground daily, chicken and sushi grade tuna "burgers", makes its own buns and also serves french fries, salads, milkshakes and local craft beers such as Wiseacre and Ghost River. There will be a full bar.
Look for the classics like the Buffalo Bill, made from bison, and new items such as the Lil' Doddy, a single or double burger; the breakfast burger available all day long; and shareable orders of gourmet fries. New milkshakes include s'more, bananas Foster, Oreo cookies and cream and more.
Also look for the roll out new cocktails like a three-whiskey L.I.T. and the Pamplejousse, all made with craft spirits, house-blended liquors and freshly squeezed juices.Read More
5. Hopdoddy – Open in a few weeks? Overton Square where YOLO used to be.
I caught this beloved Austin-based burger chain installing their sign on March 7 and my pal Shannon got a peek inside recently, but Hopdoddy hasn’t released an opening date yet. Burgers, fries, salads, shakes, booze. Menu.
