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

We are excited to be featured in “Memphis on a Budget“, an article that came out today from USA Today focused on visiting Memphis on a budget. USA Today listed us as one of the top places to dine in Memphis for under $10 each, alongside Memphis greats such as Gus’ Fried Chicken, Jerry’s Sno Cones, Mosa Asian Bistro, and Bryant’s Breakfast. Even as Memphians, sometimes we forget about some of the fun times we can have in our city for cheap, or we are constantly discovering new places. Read the article, and discover a few new ideas on how...Read More
This year, as a big thank you to all of our employees who volunteered on behalf of Huey’s, we threw our first Volunteer Appreciation Party at Levitt Shell. We are proud to have over 25% of all of our employees at all locations participate in a Huey’s volunteer event in the last 2 years, and we wanted a way to say thank you. Here are some photos from the event.
This past Saturday, we rounded up a crew of awesome Huey’s employees and headed out to Overton Park for the second annual A Day of Merrymaking. We hosted a Huey’s Kids Zone, with a frill pick shooting game, a graffiti wall to color, and a bubbles play area. We had so much fun, and by the looks of it, the rest of the guests at Overton Park did as well! The weather was unexpectedly beautiful with warm temps, sunshine, and very little mud. We had our own live music to jam to, as well as enjoying the tunes from Moon...Read More
Memphis is special for many reasons. One of our favorite reasons at Huey’s is the opportunity to see free live concerts four days a week during the Levitt Shell Spring and Fall Concert Series. Huey’s is a proud supporter of the Levitt Shell, as we sponsor a show every year and our Vice President of Operations serves on the Board of Directors. Tonight is our sponsorship night, and we encourage everyone to come groove to Katie Herzig tunes with us. For a full line-up of the Levitt Shell Spring Concert Series, view the calendar on their website.

Huey’s is a proud, Memphis institution. We’re proud of our staff, food, atmosphere, and amazing customers. We are also proud of our home, our Memphis. We all know Memphis has many great qualities, and we could sit and discuss them all day.

We should all keep bragging about our development, restaurants, parks, sports, industry, arts, and more. At Huey’s, we love...Read More
