Yummy Eats & Treats

Thursday, October 30, 2014

Ok, so many of you wanted to know about the food/restaurants near Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel! Well, there are several eating establishments within walking distance and ONE inside the hotel. ALL of them are very casual and forget about your diet, because many are caloric. HaHaHa Elvis' stuff took most of my time this trip (his estate is vast), but the next time I go, I'll be hitting Beale St. There are a LOT of restaurants on Beale Street that I would love to check out. Below are the one's near The Heartbreak Hotel. Enjoy!


Rockabilly's Burger Shop: I love this place! You feel like you've time warped back to the 50's. Old school jukeboxes. Pastel diner tables, seats and chairs. Ice cream section. Old celebrity photos. It's really cute. They offer hot dogs, cheeseburgers, chicken tenders, milkshakes, Elvis' favorite peanut butter and banana sandwich, chicken sandwiches and onion rings. They also use Blue Bell ice cream. It's sooo good! Plentiful seating on the inside and LOTS of outdoor seating with umbrellas. Here are some pics.











Elvis Presley's Chrome Grill: I didn't eat here, but I stepped in to see it (and of course take pics). This place has gorgeous salads! They also serve meatloaf, baked chicken, and sandwiches. It's very small inside, but they do have some outdoor seating. The decor is very cute. I loved the car & traffic theme. I think kids would love this place. Here are some pics.





Shake, Split & Dip: Calling all ice cream lovers!!! This is a really nice ice cream parlor, that serves sundaes, banana splits, milkshakes, waffle cone, regular cone and they have homemade FUDGE. The banana split I ordered wore me out so I didn't get a chance to try the fudge. But it LOOKED really good! Here are some pics.






Jungle Room (IN Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel): This is the restaurant IN Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel. In the MORNING'S, they offer everyone that stays FREE BREAKFAST. I think it begins at 6am and ends at 10am. For the best selection, go there early. They have FRESH fruit (apples, bananas, oranges), assortment of mini muffins, oatmeal, bagels, toast, assortment of juices, coffee and an assortment of coffee mate flavors. What else? Yogurt, homemade biscuits, and cereals w/milk. It's Free! Isn't that nice! In the EVENING'S, they have steaks, cheeseburgers, fish n chips, chicken sandwiches, club sandwiches, salads and COCKTAILS! They also play Elvis concerts and movies in the evening...It's fun. I drank so many cocktails, I nearly stood up to sing one of his song's and do that karate lunge he's famous for! Then I came to my senses and said Kim don't EVEN! End up on America's Funniest Videos or something! :P

By the time I am writing this comment, it's dinner time! I am so hungry and you made me even more with your photos! All those places look just like Elvis' style and I would visit them all (except the kid's place). I want the burger, the ice-cream, your cocktails, everything!

I love that retro diner look! Well Elvis wasn't famous for eating salads so it makes sense that the food on the menus was fried!
Haha, i bet you would still look awesome doing Elvis' famous lunge too!

Sounds like there are some cute places serving some great comfort food nearby. I love the decor of the first one, reminds me of Mel's diner in San Francisco. I absolutely love the jukebox!! Brings back lots of memories, lol!

I'm not a fan of onion rings, but I am a HUGE fan of crinkle cut fries and banana splits! I love when you do these types of posts because I can add places to my bucket list of places to eat or visit!

miss b said...

The diners are just like the ones we see in films and I love that retro look especially the pink and blue one. Such a fun place to eat and I've always been a fan of onion rings! Reading through your recent posts I can see that you really enjoyed this trip.
