We stopped in on 8.17.13 and had the BBQ ribs and gumbo. I was surprised how good the gumbo was and the ribs were outstanding. Left full and didn't have to spend a fortune.
Alfred's in Memphis is one great spot for bar-be-que. The ribs were fall off the bone tender and very flavourful. Caesar salad was amazing. Kids had burgers which they said were amazing. Our server, Margaret re-defines what a server should be. She was prompt, attentive and great with the kids. I would definitely go back next time in Memphis!
We were charged a cover to go sit on the rooftop (no music/band playing on the rooftop). So basically, I was charged a cover to eat and people watch. My friend went to the bar to buy us drinks and there were 4 people behind the bar. One was working and the other 3 were just on break? No one... More
Had the grilled catfish and it was just ok. The sweet potato fries were soggy and almost seemed like they'd been microwaved instead of baked or fried. Husband had the gumbo which he said was pretty good. Drinks started off really strong then went really weak.
We ordered 2 appetizers and it took over an hour. Waitress never asked if we needed refill on drinks and told us an hour after we ordered that kitchen was backed up. Nachos and sausage/cheese plate shouldn't take that long
Visited at lunch. Started with the BBQ nachos and split the Alfred's ribs and Alfred's chicken sandwich. All were excellent. The restaurant is nothing fancy but the food is great
We got the pulled pork nachos but the pork would be fabulous in any form (plate, sandwich, spaghetti, etc). It was the most pure, tender, pulled pork that we experienced anywhere!!! Several other places said pulled pork but it was actually chopped and had lots of grissle in it. Alfred's gets it right!
The live music and atmosphere was okay although this was my first time on Beale street. The service and food was mediocre to be honest.
Alfreds was recommended to us by our hotel as a great place to eat. Had lunch here and it wasn't crowded at all. Bartender was very friendly and the food was extremely good. I could tell most of it was made from scratch. Would love to visit again
