Personally I think it is completely worth the trip just to get an ice cream cone. When the weather is nice we will get a burger, fries and a shake and walk over to the Town Square and find a bench. Nice to just eat and enjoy the Square. You never know if there will be a line at Mensi's.... More

That cheeseburger is perfect, but its their ice cream treats that make it a huge hit. Sundaes, old fashioned banana splits, malts, shakes, cones, cups. So many flavors. Call ahead and pickups too.

Mensi's is located off the square in Collierville to the East side. It is an old fashioned ice cream type place. A real family atmosphere they give you good value and the ice cream I have had there is excellent. They also have the normal dairy queen type menu and from what I could tell they give proper attention to... More

If you ever went to a burger/ice cream joint growing up, it was probably a lot like Mensi's. The burgers are juicy, fries are plentiful. There's no seating, walk-up only. At lunch and right after school you will probably find a short, but fast moving line. I like to grab a burger and fries, then find a bench on the... More

Stopped for a jumbo burger. Don't expect a think patty, still a very thin piece of meat. So thin that the lettuce and tomatoes were overpowering the meat. Next time I will order a double!

Ordered jumbo hamburger, fries, and choc shake. For the price it was great. French fries were perfect. My only negative thing to say is that the hamburger is way too thin but is very tasty. Also the shake is too small but good. The straw too thin. I would make the burgers thicker, and the shakes larger and charge more.... More

This little place where you walk to the window, order, wait outside, then eat in your car is a winner. Local favorite for years. The hamburgers and fries are wonderful and the shakes and other ice cream treats are sooo good. Do yourself a favor.

The food at Mensi's tastes just like the 'dairy bar' food when you were growing up! Incredible burgers with or without everything, full flavor and always hot. Fries are krinkle cut and just the right amount of crunchy! The shakes and ice cream are smooth and perfect. Can't miss it.

Nothing has changed since this walk-up only dairy bar was built back in the 1940's. Great burgers, crinkle-cut fries, and the best milkshakes EVER! Enjoy your lunch on a park bench or in the gazebo, and remember the days before drive-in windows.

My family is in walking distance, and my teens like to get a fast, cheap swirled ice cream or slushy. They also have good burgers and fries. You can park right in front if you are in a hurry, or park at the scenic town square where you can sit and enjoy eating your purchase.
