What You'll Get
Neighborhoods value their pubs as a place to socialize, just as they value the ends of their rainbows as a place to find extra parking-meter change. Enjoy camaraderie at close proximity with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of Southern fare at The Green Beetle.
The chefs at Memphis's oldest tavern satisfy cravings with a hearty menu of Southern classics. Guests can mollify impatient hunger pains with appetizers, such as hot wings tossed in hot sauce, mild sauce, or dragon's breath ($7.95), before mitts claw at sandwiches such as a grilled po boy with italian sausage and red and green peppers ($7). The edible Southern narrative pushes forth with entrees such as Cajun-spiced meatloaf ($10), a secret family recipe flanked with a choice of two homestyle sides, including mac 'n' cheese and horseradish mashed potatoes ($10). Guests can wash down hearty flavors with sips of ice-cold Dr. Pepper and sweet tea or a steaming mug of coffee ($2 for each). Paintings, posters, and black-and-white portraits grace vibrant green-paneled walls that lead up to The Green Beetle’s cathedral ceiling, which slopes upward as gracefully as a gazelle on a ferris wheel.

About The Green Beetle
The oldest operating tavern in Memphis, The Green Beetle urges visitors to have a beer there—because their grandfathers probably did. Described by I Love Memphis as "packed with food that goes well with drinking," the menu is home to big burgers, decked-out sandwiches, and a huge variety of appetizers that pair well with a beer from one of the taps.
