Order In: 8 Memphis Restaurants that Deliver

Posted by Holly Whitfield | July 26th 2010 16130 0

For those times when you’re both hungry and lazy, order in from one of these locally owned delivery restaurants:

1. Camy’s

Phone number: (901) 725-1667

What they’ll bring you: Pizzas, sandwiches, pasta, hot wings, salads, steak. This is possibly the only place in town that will bring you an 8 oz. ribeye. I recommend the barbecue pizza – it’s tangy, barbecue-topped perfection.

Speed: They said 30 minutes for my pizza, and they had it to me in 20.

Delivery area: Midtown and downtown

2.  Young Avenue Deli

Phone number: (901) 278-0034

What they’ll bring you: Anything from their huge menu of sandwiches, quesadillas, pizzas and fried foods. I recommend getting a side of their amazing fries (they’ll give you a ton of ketchup packets).

Speed: It may take a little while -the Deli isn’t known for their amazing service. If you don’t mind being a little patient, the food is totally worth it.

Delivery area: Cooper Young and the immediate area around it.

3.  Wang’s Mandarin House

Phone number: Downtown – (901) 523-2065, U of M area – (901) 458-4880,

What they’ll bring you: Chinese food, and lots of it. I had the egg drop soup, crab rangoon and Mu-Shu vegetables (which came with tortillas to put the veggies in). They’ve got a $12 delivery minimum, so plan accordingly.

Speed: Generally, delivery times are about 30 – 45 minutes.

Delivery area: With three locations in Memphis, they’ll bring you food pretty much anywhere.

4. Ubee’s

Phone number: (901) 323-0900

What they’ll bring you: Patty melts that will change your life. They’ve also got salads, custom sandwiches, hummus and burgers. They deliver their full menu until 3 a.m. every day.

Speed: From their shop near the U of M to Cooper Young, about 30 minutes.

Delivery area: Pretty much anywhere in the 240 loop.

5.  Bardog Tavern

Phone number: (901) 275-8752

What they’ll bring you: Anything from their menu of sandwiches, salads, and entrees. I highly recommend the Island Club. Sadly, they won’t bring you breakfast – delivery runs from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. There’s a $10 minimum on delivery orders.

Speed: Pretty fast – think 30 minutes.

Delivery area: Downtown only.

6. Frank’s Main St. Market and Deli

Phone number: (901) 523-0101

What they’ll bring you: Grilled sandwiches, wraps, salads, cake. They’ve got daily specials, so ask about them when you call in your order.

Speed: Frank’s delivers by bicycle, so as fast as their delivery girl can ride.

Delivery area: Downtown only. Alas.

7. Tucker’s

Phone number: (901) 274-0333

What they’ll bring you: Just about anything. Tucker’s is known for their hot wings, but they’ve also got burgers, fried chicken, cheesecake, catfish. Seriously, they’ve got it all. Delivery is free on orders of $7 or more. If your order is less than that, there’s a $1 delivery charge.

Speed: The standard 30 to 45 minutes.

Delivery area: Midtown and downtown only.

8. Ferraro’s

Phone number: (901) 522-2033

Ferraro's Pizza, Memphis, Tenn.

Ferraro's Pizza

What they’ll bring you: Pizzas, pasta, soups, antipasto, and their house special stromboli.

Speed: That all depends on where you are. Think 30 minutes.

Delivery area: Their website claims that they deliver to uptown, downtown, midtown and Mud Island.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    Any East Memphis places you’ll cover for us? 🙂 PS – LOVE YOUR BLOG!!!!!!!!

  2. Jessie_Girl81 says:

    dang, I meant to suggest the Park/Mt. Moriah dynamic duo, Asian Palace Express (take-out satellite store of the nice Bartlett restaurant) and SteakOut. Those two got me through college without a car!! Still haven’t found better Chinese than that place…..

  3. E says:


    I mean, #1 & #2 have been in rotation but it’s so great to have a list of a bit more variety at hand!

  4. Helpful says:

    Don’t forget Garibaldi’s! And Yates location covers a lot of East Memphis!

  5. Laine says:

    You need to include Meals in Motion! They’re a company in East Memphis that picks up food and delivers it to you, for a really small fee. They deliver from Mortimer’s, Las Delicias, Patricks’, Lucchesi’s, and several other places. I think the delivery fee is around $4 or $5!

  6. Susan says:

    You really had 8, but somehow your numbers got messed up.

    Love the blog!!!!

    Love your blog! This post is priceless.

  9. Tonya says:

    I really wish there more places that deliver elsewhere. Seems that if it’s not pizza, chinese or jason’s deli alot of people in places other than downtown, midtown or the U of M area are just out of luck.

    Whatever you do don't order TUCKERS.  They use to have great food and I don't know what happened. I worked there and they kept getting bad scores from department of health. Last time I came to town I went to get some food and it was horrible. 

  11. Pat smith says:

    Patricks is a gret Resturant to eat at or have food delivered. Anything you want!  There is a menu online. Now to have it delivered… you go to   mealsinmotion.com.  For $4.99 you get your meal brought right to you. Hope this helps!
    Oh , there are about 12 diferent reasturants listed here that they deliver for.

  12. Summer says:

    This is wonderful! I’m not only lazy, but also new here, and too tired to get out tonight. I love you. Every town should have your blog. I’m about to order some ubees bc I haven’t had a patty melt in ages. I’m sold. You should tell them to give you an awesome discount for bringing them business.

    I love your blog, but really, this post should have been titled:

    8 Memphis Restaurants that Deliver to DOWNTOWN AND MIDTOWN.



  14. Douglas says:

    Wang's Downtown or Yao's is so bad!  No one should eat here… its terrible!  I wish there was a better chinese place that served the downtown/mud island area!  Let me know if anyone knows of one!

  15. Bobbie Martone says:

    I wish I could have an enormous Stromboli right now. 

  16. Casandra says:

    TROLLEY STOP MARKET has FREE Delivering and only a $20 minimum. And the farm to table/house aspect is great to support here in our city! The LOCAL food and supporting these smaller businesses at a very reasonable price makes the already delicious food taste even better!
