One person got it right!!!

Welcome to Huey's in Memphis

Home of the most AMAZING burgers and the BEST onion rings you will ever eat!!!

And Tori was the first and only one to guess it!!

Huey's is also famous for.........

shooting toothpicks into the ceiling while you wait for your food!!

How fun is that?!!

I have to say that I was pretty good at it!!!!

the best part was watching people who didn't know of the tradition react...

we had one couple get up and move tables from us!!!

come on people.....loosen up and have some fun!

This would be what the floor looked like!
See, they don't always "stay" in the ceiling!!!

Which also means that you need to protect your drinks!!!

We had a lot of fun here..this is our kind of restaurant!!!

But I do believe it really is one of the best burgers I have ever eaten!!!

Of course, it could also be that I was famished after walking a bazillion miles that day in triple digit heat......just sayin'!!!


Tori said...

Yay! I was trying to think what you could shoot out besides spit wads. How fun!!

Sara@i.Sass said...

darn it! toothpicks!
I'd be arfraid to look up, it'll poke your eye out kid!

H-Mama said...

I was thinking the same thing... Don't look up! ;)

Mama Belle said...

That's a strange past-time. I'm sure more than one mom has said something about poking an eye out.

The onion rings look delicious.

Toothpicks, huh? Hmmm....when I was growing up, we went to the GroundRound and you threw peanuts all over the place and whenever you walked.....CRUNCH, CRUNCH, CRUNCH!!

lol Oh, the memories!


BTW....I sooo want that burger and onion rings!

Growin' with it! said...

i would be the unlucky one to look up and have a toothpick fall and hit me in the eye!! cannot believe the onion rings were as big as the burger...now that's a meal!

Mocha with Linda said...

We have the steakhouses with the peanut shells all over the floor.

My girl is SOOOO jealous - you probably heard her all the way at her house when she saw the pictures!

And my husband would LOVE those onion rings!!

We've had just a "few" of those hot days ourselves....

Margaret said...

Sounds fun. My kids would love it! You'd better get over the heat Sara, you're coming to AZ soon. On Sunday night, it was still 105 at 10:00pm in Phoenix.

LuAnn said...

That is so funny. Looks like it would be fun to do too.

Jill said...

Well, HOW COOL is that? I have NEVER heard of such a thing! FUN...and boy does that plate of food look DELECTABLE!

Darla said...

looks like something my family would like!!! what a fun memory. and those onion rings, oh my! they look amazing!

Smilingsal said...

I will admit it. I would not want to sit under falling toothpicks, covered with germs.

Rebecca said...

I, too, remember The Ground Round and Peanuts. But never toothpicks! We had our YOUNG grandkids with us for a few days and took them to another fun place (for kids) - Chuckie Cheese!
