Barksdale is a no-nonsense type of eatery. The interior decor is stuck in the 0's with a dark brown carpet and dark brown paneling covered with photos of Memphis notables and ads. The food is also no-nonsense with staples such as country fried steak, fried chicken livers, beef tips and noodles, and meatloaf. With your main you also get a choice of three sides that include cole slaw, baked apples, cottage cheese, mac & cheese, green beans, etc. They also serve open and closed face sandwiches, burgers, and what looks like a very tasty southern breakfast.
Be aware that the Barksdale closes early....like 3pm!
Favorite Dish: Hot roast beef with gravy sandwich, fried chicken, catfish sandwich
