Past "Tweets"

The following are past "tweets" about restaurants that I and others have commented on through my Twitter account, prior to establishing this blog. Some of the sub-headings are hyperlinked to blog articles:

Kooky Canuck:

Just had the blackened catfish @KookyCanuck, with green beans and a salad with a sun-dried tomato vinaigrette. A healthy, awesome meal! (May 16, 2010)

The strawberry & jalapeño chicken wings I had yesterday @kookycanuck were amazing. An unlikely combination of ingredients, but brilliant. (June 13, 2010)

Kooky Canuck's Cookie A La Mode (chocolate chip & vanilla ice cream) was yummy as well. After eating that & the wings, I was ready for a nap. (June 13, 2010)

Sweet Grass:

For lunch, I had the Low Country Shrimp and Grits at Sweet Grass (@SweetGrassMem) and I loved it. (May 21, 2010)

KFC (Lakeland, TN):

Had the grilled Double Down at the KFC in Lakeland. Not as salty as the fried version, but it could've been better (May 21, 2010)

Melanie's Soul Food:

At Melanie's Soul Food, I had the BBQ ribs, collard greens & mashed potatoes w/gravy. Overall, the meal was average. [the restaurant's website] (May 21, 2010)

Frayser Maid:

Eating a Ham and Cheese omelet with hashbrowns. The meal is OK, for a "greasy spoon". Service is decent. ( (May 29, 2010)

Broadway Pizza House:

Had the cheeseburger at Broadway Pizza. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a 5. Not quite as good as it's hype, but decent. (May 29, 2010)

Had the @HookandLadder Lighter (a light ale) with the perfect dish: a shrimp pizza from Broadway Pizza. Great combination! (May 31, 2010)

Blues City Cafe:

Tip: Bud Light Lime (a favorite) doesn't go well with BBQ ribs (at least not the ribs I had at Blues City Cafe; ribs were pretty good). (June 1, 2010)

Dino's Grill:

The beef lasagna at Dino's Grill was great, as usual. However, Dino's is the only Italian restaurant that I know of that doesn't serve wine. (June 3, 2010)


The barbecue omelet I had at @cockadoos was scrumptiously delicious! The pulled pork and sauce was the best I've had in awhile. (June 19, 2010)

The catfish & grits I had @cockadoos was awesomely delicious! Two thumbs up! (June 26, 2010)

Cafe Eclectic:

Just had a glazed donut at my new [and preferred] neighborhood bakery (@ Cafe Eclectic) (June 20, 2010)

Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken:

While listening to Howard Stern, Cyndi Lauper gave a plug to Gus's Fried Chicken, the best in Memphis. Check it out! (June 22, 2010)

Wild Bill's:

Although the "seasoned" wings I had at Wild Bill's last night were average, the Blues performances were awesome! Who needs Beale St.? (June 26, 2010)

Majestic Grille:
One of the best brunch offerings in Memphis. (@ Majestic Grille) (June 27, 2010)

Court House Deli:

RT @waskew: Court House Deli's crawfish etoufee gets my highest endorsement. [I'm including this because I know this place; makes great sandwiches] (June 30, 2010)


The seafood gumbo at DejaVu was decent. Could've been meatier. Also, would've liked to have had something to crack open the crab legs. (July 2, 2010)

The Edge Coffee Shop:

The Edge's Avalanche milkshake is quite good. Ice coffee as a milkshake. (July 2, 2010)

The Blue Monkey:

Try the prime rib at the Blue Monkey. It's really good. The flatbreads (trolley car crisps) are also a treat and beer prices are reasonable. (July 3, 2010)

Bardog Tavern:

The breakfast sliders (with sausage) @bardogtavern were pretty good, despite the bottom buns breaking up. (July 4, 2010)

Lenny's (Midtown):

As usual, Lenny's Philly cheesesteak sandwich was awesome. Not the typical Philly, but with lettuce, tomato & mayo, it's great nonetheless. (July 4, 2010)

South of Beale:
RT @norococo: @southofbeale Thank you. Is your popcorn seasoning a secret recipe? Love it so. [I totally agree with this] (July 9, 2010)

In the future, I will try to coordinate my "tweets" and blog posts better.
