We were very excited to be able to sponsor and participate again this year in the Polar Bear Plunge and Chili Cook-off, benefiting The Special Olympics. This event took place on Saturday, February 2nd, at Mud Island. During the morning, competing teams perfected their chili recipes, then gave a sample to the judges, as well as letting all of the passers-by get their fill as well. In the afternoon, some very brave volunteers ran and jumped into the Wolf River Sound to raise money for the cause. This is a very fun event, and we are always excited when February rolls around...Read More
One of our most important values at Huey’s is community involvement. Thomas Boggs always emphasizes the importance of giving back to the people who give us so much. We are excited that, as a business, we are able to get so involved with our community. There are many great non-profit organizations in Memphis, and hard-working people behind them, that we feel we can only do our best to support them. Below is a summary of our community involvement in 2012.
Our friends at Southern Living have launched a poll on their website to find the Tastiest Town in The South. They have nominated their Top 10 picks, and it is up to the voters to decide what city takes first place. Currently, Memphis is ranked 3rd, right behind Asheville and Durham, NC. Those cities are great, but what do they really have on us? We encourage all of you to go out and vote for Memphis, because we all know Memphis has the best of all cuisines. You can vote once a day, every day. This is a great boost for our...Read More

Fall is here, everyone, and we have some great new ways to celebrate. First, we have started offering weekend happy hour specials!
If anyone was in Downtown Memphis on Saturday, you may have noticed the 15,000 people on Mud Island. They all came together for the 2nd annual Duncan Williams Dragon Boat Races. Dragon boats are similar to a canoe, except they are 46 feet long, shallower, and thinner. They take a team of 20 paddlers, plus a drummer, to row. This is our second year participating in the races, and we were excited to be able to row two boats this year. Alongside entering the race, Huey’s is also a proud sponsor of the event. Overall, our two teams placed 25th...Read More
