Memphis has a long list of affordable dining establishments. Café Society may seem like some high brow dining establishment but its not. Named after a Parisian cafe, this lively bistro has a vague country-inn feel. You can hang-out at small bar or dine outdoors and people-watch. Lunches are the most reasonably priced, so that's the best time to come. The Cottage is a tried-and-true Memphis diner that offers ample helpings of down-home Southern cooking. The restaurant is inexpensive and often crowded. With its mix of country kitchen decor and local university sports memorabilia, the Cottage is a clean and friendly place, but nothing fancy. Know for their chicken-fried steak, fried green tomatoes (in season) and a mouth-watering selection of homemade pies. If you're in the mood for a burger, you have to go to Dyer's. In 1912, the late Elmer "Doc" Dyer opened his own place and began to develop a secret cooking process for his world famous burgers. Legend has it that the "secret" was Doc Dyer's ageless cooking grease. This famous grease, strained daily, has continued to produce the juicy Dyer's Burgers for almost a century now. You won't go hungry, or poor, at these affordable Memphis eateries.
