Follow The Celebs To: Memphis TN For Food & Sports

Diners, Drive-ins and Dives: An All-American Road Trip . . . with Recipes! (Food Network)Love watching the Food Network shows like Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and The Best Thing I Ever Ate? It's time to follow Guy Fieri and all the other Food Network celebs, and try out the food they are raving about.

Memphis Tennessee is not one of the "Big" cities in the U.S., because although it is the biggest city in Tennessee, it's only the 41st largest metro area.  But what it lacks in "Big", it makes up with local flavor, both in food and sports.

The lone "Big Four" sports team in the city is the Memphis Grizzlies of the NBA.  Baseball (Memphis Redbirds) is played in the Pacific Coast League, ice hockey (Memphis Riverkings) in the Central Hockey League, football (Memphis Panthers) in the North American Football League, and rugby union (Memphis Blues) is played in the USA Rugby South league.  Besides lower ticket prices, you're also much closer to the action in these smaller league venues.

So if you're going to or from a game, and you're starving for something different, find the closest restaurant on our map below.
