Great burgers! But don't go for a birthday meal expecting anything as a celebration. They will not sing or offer a free dessert like most restaurants.

I've been to Kooky Canuck 2 times with 2 years in between the visits and its the same story, even 2 years later. I understand that it was in the middle of a lunch rush but, and hour and 15 minutes after ordering seems an unreasonable time to wait. And on top of that, my friend's burger was completely raw...

This is a good solid restaurant in downtown Memphis. The decor is nice and a refreshing break from typical diners in the area. We dined here twice during our week stay and both times the food and service were fantastic.

One of their burgers made it on to Man vs Food. I did not order that. I am in Memphis for the International Blues Challenge & many Canadians attend. They love this place. Went for a late lunch prior to reporting for duty to support the judging for the quarterfinals. Ordered the Canadian Club (yes, it is a sandwich) -... More

Without a doubt, the Memphis' Best burger is the most original hamburger I have eaten. Glorious and sloppy. Loved it. The strawberry jalapeno dipping sauce is fantastic, as is the chocolate chip skillet dessert.

Yes, they moved, but it's just 2 doors down from where they were originally! The only downside is the parking which is mainly garages or if you're lucky you can park on the street. If parking on the street, you have to feed the meter every two hours. They're burgers are phenomenal!! They also have a very extensive menu if... More

My family of four decided to try this eatery and I'm sad to say this was the worst meal of our trip. We ordered the BBQ nachos which had no pork maybe a few strains and a lot of canned baked beans. We asked our server and she said they only put 6oz of pork on the nachos but it... More
