What Memphis Restaurants Are Open On Mondays?

Posted by Holly Whitfield | January 11th 2021 2862 0

Ed. Note: It’s the natural way of the world that some restaurants are closed on Mondays—they need a weekend, too! Contributor Wesley Paraham noticed this issue and decided to simplify it for us all. He brings to you: A list of Memphis restaurants reliably open on MONDAYS, listed by neighborhood with hours and takeout, dine-in, and curbside information.

I’ve added some descriptions and links to more info about the restaurants. This isn’t meant to be an exhaustive list, just a few suggestions. Feel free to add yours in the comments! 

Have you recently tried to order some food on a Monday, and it just didn’t work? Me too. 

That’s what inspired me to create this list of Memphis restaurants open on Monday so we’ll never have to go hungry during the worst day of the week again. Take a look below—there’s a good mix of cuisines from across the city.

Very important: It’s an awful time to be in the service industry right now. Cooks, servers, hosts, and everyone else involved in serving you a great meal are risking their health for you, so please order big and tip even bigger.
