~~~ A day in Memphis ~~~

We got up early and decided to go into Memphis and visit the city for the day... When we arrived there we decided to take the trolley around the city instead of driving our car. It was a lot easier this way. We choose to park our car at the visitor center by River Park. There are so many things to see & do... I took hundreds of pictures for you to see but when I wanted to add them I realized that there was a lot. So I put them into a slide show for you to enjoy the sites of the city... At the end of our day when we were heading back to the car they were having a concert over at Mud Island with Pat Benatar & Blondie being the performers... We could sit right there on a bench across the river and hear the music just fine.

A great ending to a wonderful day...

We are so thankful to the Food Network for putting on so many shows about places to eat around the country... Being people who are always on the go around the country we find it fun to try and visit as many of these places that we can. Our favorite show is Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives with Guy Fieri. We have a list of about 5 restaurants to go to in Memphis but sadly we will not be able to visit them all... However we will give it a good try:

Leonards BBQ is the first one we visited... Now you can order off the menu but there is a BBQ buffet which has all of his best dishes on it including Baby Back Ribs, Pulled Pork, White fish, BBQ'd Beef, Chicken Wings and much more... The food was delish and we enjoyed everything about this restaurant... The staff was friendly, the food was good and the price was reasonable... Guy did not let us down... Here are a few pictures we took while dinning at Leonard's
Entrance to Leonard's BBQ
Inside the restaurant are Grand Daughters Hannah & Alyssah
Inside of Buffet areas... They are set up in 2 rooms...
one with the all the meats & the other one with the sides
We sat in the back dining area... very casual

Were are a couple of our dinner plates... and all you can eat BBQ YUMO!

Well we sure had a ton of fun and I really hope you enjoyed the pictures...
Come to Memphis it is a great city to visit!
Until Later
Hugs And Kisses

Hi Donna! Now I have to say that is our kind of trip. My husband rates a vacation by how good the food is! I would love to road trip across the south eating BBQ!

Have fun as you continue. You are living the life. :)

I too love the food network and the diner show. One of my friends got invited to one of the tapings of a diner in her city.
Those ribs looks so good.

Hi Donna! Sounds like you are having a great time. Loved the slide show, what a neat way to show us the city. Triple D is our favorite Food Network show. How fun to travel around trying his restaurant recommendations! DH would love that vacation lol. Travel safe and have fun. Kathy (Oh, and I would have loved to have been at that concert - how fun!)

I have been to many of those places. Our favorite place in Memphis to visit is Peabody Place. I like going there for a meal and a movie.
Hope you have fun on your visit.

Donna, great pictures! I don't know why, but the fire truck one was my favorite!

OMG, those ribs look SO good. I don't like the cooking shows, but I do like the ones that highlight diners, that show Unwrapped, etc.
