Memphis Fire Barbeque Company
Memphis Fire Barbeque Company are unafraid champions of cooking from the 1950s and 1960s, the Southern United States, and their common childhoods. They want you to feel like you’re in a different town, but still at heart, while you visit Memphis Fire Barbeque Business. This is the food they grew up with, the food they fall in love with, and it all comes from a time when talented chefs made food with honesty, zeal, and caring. Food didn’t come from a lab, a bottle, a freezer box, or was made to be shelf-stable for two years in that period, no matter where you fed.

“We have dined here many times and always love the food, staff and atmosphere. But tonight I was very impressed – and I didn’t even have the pleasure of eating at Memphis! We plan on ordering takeout this weekend for a small family celebration and I had some questions, so I called the restaurant. I spoke with Steve and he was so helpful – even though they were closed for the night and probably very busy getting ready for stage 3 reopening the next day. I really appreciated that he took the time to help us understand the catering vs menu options. We look so forward to our feast on Saturday!” – Emm Bee

“This turned out to be the best Korean grill experience we’ve ever had! Just what we were looking for in a Sunday night date night after a month of lockdown. This place has great atmosphere, delicious, fresh food (a variety of meats, fish and seafood; side dishes and nice surprises like dim sum and desert), and amazing service. 10/10 would recommend, hats off to the staff at Spring Grill House for making this a stellar experience at a really difficult time.” – Marina Kudrow
