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. Just recently there was a great blog post by Lance Weidower highlighting many of these, with the comment section highlighting even more. A great example is the incredible revitalization our city is undergoing as we speak, an admirable task with efforts from many. We should all keep bragging about our development, restaurants, parks, sports, industry, arts, and more. At Huey’s, we love...Read More
Down to Earth Fest at Shelby Farms Park was an absolute success this past weekend!

You can see the whole photo album on our Facebook page. Even the puppies had a blast. Watch how much they enjoyed the bubbles too: We hope you all have...Read More

Ever wonder why we have so many darned frill picks in our ceilings at Huey’s? Ever wondered how they get up there? We understand the frustration our customers experience when they try again and again to shoot their frill picks into our ceiling but can never seem to make it. Take some tips from the experts, and watch this how-to video on how to perfectly stick your frill pick in the ceiling every time.
Our staff is the reason we continue to be successful, and we want to make sure you all get to know them well.
