It is with great sadness that we said goodbye to our beloved manager Terry Winston this past weekend. TW passed away Saturday afternoon after a long battle with cancer. TW had been a manager with us for 15 years, working at Huey’s Midtown and then at Huey’s Southaven. He always had a bright, cheery attitude and knew every single word to every classic rock song that came on the radio. He will be missed greatly. Here’s a highlight about this “Burger Boss” from The Commercial Appeal in 2009: http://www.commercialappeal.com/business/burger-boss
Felicia Willet of Felicia Suzanne’s was recently featured in Memphis Magazine, and she gave a kind shout out to Thomas Boggs and Huey’s. Charlie Vergos of Charlie Vergos’ Rendezvous and Thomas Boggs of Huey’s Restaurant were both titans in this business, but they were humble men who were always happy to share their secret to success. The advice they gave was simple, yet invaluable to me as I began to think about how I wanted to model my business: Always count your blessings, and pay them back to the community that gives them to you. We owe much to the...Read More

We are sickened by the loss of our sweet employee Tina Maher and her fiancé David Wyatt, who tragically died in a car accident Tuesday evening.

For the second year in a row, members of our Huey’s staff have come together to donate their time and money to feed the homeless Christmas lunch. This year we partnered with local nonprofit Eat Memphis to provide lunches to over 130 guests at Huey’s Downtown. Each guest recieved turkey, dressing, green beans, sweet potatoes, gravy, and cookies. Thanks to all of the volunteers, the homeless were able to sit in a warm building with hot food, drinks, and great service. The kids all helped the homeless to their tables and kept their cups filled. Cortez and Jessica with Eat...Read More

Huey’s is a proud sponsor of Rock For Love and big supporter of Church Health Center. Each year, we participate in this fun event, one of the Church Health Center’s biggest fundraisers all year along.

Huey’s Midtown hosted the Kick-Off Show the Sunday before the music festival began on August 31st. The Chaulkies jammed from 4pm-7pm. Church Health Center was present to pump up the show and give away swag, and we ran beer specials that day to raise an extra $268.00...Read More

As many of you know, we host annual frill pick contests at each of our locations. Once a year, we knock down the picks and hold a contest, which raises money for the Memphis Zoo. Along with our customer frill pick contest, we also hold a behind the scenes employee frill pick contest as well. In short, the employee that raises the most money for the Memphis Zoo during the store’s annual frill pick contest wins a prize. Huey’s Downtown just wrapped up another successful frill pick contest, which in total raised $1354.00 for the Memphis Zoo. The employee that raised...Read More
Huey’s Midtown is excited to welcome the outstanding and overwhelmingly talented JP Soars and the Red Hots to our stage on Sunday night, August 31st at 8:30pm.
