Tips from the community

Arcade is Memphis’ oldest continuously running restaurant - first opened over a century ago in 1919. The establishment has been owned by four generations of the Zepatos family and was founded by Speros Zepatos who immigrated to the United States at the turn of the 20th century. Arcade Restaurant knows what they’re doing when it comes to food. The Food Network named their fried peanut butter and banana sandwich among the best in America in 2020 and their pizzas also come highly recommended. Arcade’s dining room is steeped in nostalgia for American diner culture, and even has a booth dedicated to Elvis Presley due to the many times he visited.

The Arcade is Memphis’ oldest restaurant, and in the century that they’ve been open they perfected the art of breakfast. In the establishment’s long lifespan, it became infamously beloved by Elvis Presley and other local celebrities. The restaurant serves nostalgia with all of their American Diner fare. Try out a spiked milkshake and their sweet potato pancakes. Ask for the Elvis Booth.

Elvis' go-to spot for his fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Want to walk in his shoes? When you enter the restaurant, turn to the left and follow that row to the booth at the very end. That's where Elvis sat and ate, with his back to the door.
