Pete and Sam’s
Native Memphians see Pete and Sam’s in East Memphis as a home away from home. This comfortable, family-style restaurant, opened in 1948, is where locals go to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries, cheer themselves up after a bad day or enjoy a lazy Sunday evening. From the vintage neon sign outside to the red-and-white check tablecloths, this restaurant screams old-school. But the food is so good – don’t miss the mushroom pizza and toasted ravioli – even the most adventurous foodies come back again and again.
