Fodor's Review

The food at this hole-in-the-wall lunch spot just north of downtown is as down-home and funky as the decor—walls lined with eclectic artwork and a jukebox stocked with Memphis hits. The kitchen turns out its own versions of "meat and two," including fried chicken and pork chops served alongside sweet-potato fries, fried green tomatoes, and other vegetables. Desserts, including pecan pie and sweet potato pie, bread pudding, and pound cake, are as sinfully rich as the sweet tea Alcenia's serves up in tall glasses.

Great Memphis Soul Food Restaurant

Great catfish, chicken, pork chops, green beans, etc. Downtown Memphis. The desserts are excellent. Call your order in if you plant to eat in or for take out and service will be much better. Open Saturday for brunch.
