There’s a reason University of Memphis students swear by R.P. Tracks. It’s practically on campus, they’ve got pool tables, big TVs and a decent bar, and the menu is huge.
You can’t go wrong by starting with the chips and cheese appetizer. The salt and pepper coated tortilla chips are incredible. They give the cheese dip a nice little kick. It’s the perfect size for two people, or one person who wants to eat cheese dip for dinner (not that I know from personal experience).
R.P. Tracks is definitely vegan and vegetarian friendly. Plenty of their quesadillas, sandwiches and sides are meatless.
A slew of Memphians swear by Tracks’ barbecue tofu nachos, but I’m more of a jerk chicken kind of girl. Chips are piled high with black bean (or meat) chili, spicy chicken, tomatoes, lettuce, jalapeno peppers and sour cream. One order of nachos is definitely big enough for two hungry people.
R.P. Tracks backs up to the train tracks that run along Southern Ave. When trains go by, the whole building shakes a little bit. (I’ve heard rumors that there are drink specials while trains go by, but I haven’t been able to confirm them.) The restaurant is also Project Greenfork certified, which means that it’s environmentally sustainable.
R.P. Tracks is open late daily, and they’ve got a decent wireless connection.
