It Was Love at First Bite!!

“Meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you I had no control over.”

We would like to congratulate the future Mr. and Mrs. Bob Wallace on their recent engagement. Here is the happy couple on their first date at the Downtown Mesquite Chop House one year ago. This past Thursday they came in to celebrate their one year anniversary and their engagement. We wish them a long and blissful life together.

Summer is around the corner and temperatures are rising in beautiful Downtown Memphis. Here at the Mesquite Chop House our summer plans are heating up as well. In the coming weeks we plan to unveil Chef Michael Patrick’s red-hot new summer dinner menu, his frugal yet filling lunch menu, and our new and improved Happy Hour.
