Something we have learned during the past 17 months of traveling is that some of the best places are those that we just happen upon. One evening, we went in search of a quick bite to eat around the neighborhood of our apartment. Two blocks away, we came across a little corner restaurant called Huey's. It is not much to look at from the outside, but we quickly learned that it is a Memphis landmark in its own right. Opened in 1970, Huey's ( the childhood nickname of founder Alan Gary) has been voted as having the best burgers in Memphis every year since 1984. And it shows: the place is always packed. Huey's is a fun place to visit and eat - the employees are always smiling; there is live music; and customers get into the spirit of the place by joining a competition to see who can blow the most toothpicks into the ceiling through a straw (apparently there is a prize). We loved it, and the food is good too.
