Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I cannot wait to get more food here! I got the waffle monte cristo & he got the club. Both were huge & amazing! The fried pickles are chunks of dill pickle, not chips or spears. SO GOOD! Honey mustard was on point, we grabbed it to go & the portions were so big, we had it again for dinner when we got home that night.

This place is so fantastic. Home to the 4 lb, the 6 lb and the 12 lb Kookamonga Hamburger challenge, costing $41.99, $57.99 and $99.99 respectively. I was able to witness a patron taking the 4 lb challenge but they couldn't finish. If you finish in 60 minutes then it's FREE. I opted for fish/chips and it was fantastic. They also offer a Birthday Avalanche at a cost of $32.49 consisting of 18 scoops of ice cream, toppings, party favours and a photo. I also got to witness one of these being delivered to the table next to us. It's an amazing dessert but when the family left the Avalanche still had plenty to feed another dozen people. :) Great place to eat and I would certainly go here again.

We stopped in for drinks and appetizers and ended up really enjoying ourselves. We never ventured further than the bar, so I can't give you a feel of the place itself, but the bar has plenty of seats and you don't feel crowded. You have three or four TVs to entertain you while you people-watch from the large windows that display 2nd Street. Marilynn was our server the first night (yes, we came back the next evening) and she was as friendly as they come! Great in suggesting drinks as well as making small talk to pass the evening away. She makes a mean Peach Bourbon Palmer! That drink is amazing! We got the wings and fries for an appetizer and the wings were good, but the fries were so good that my wife ordered a 2nd batch to take back to the hotel. They have a 4 lb. burger there that you can challenge yourself to eat in a limited amount of time. Someone did it in 4 mins. I hope he's okay because that burger is huge. The 2nd night we had a bartender named Mike. He was really cool and made great drinks, too. Everyone who worked there, including the host, was extremely friendly and would make conversation with you if you invited it. They have a juke box that took requests, so the music that played in the restaurant was good. The spot is within walking distance of the Canopy, Doubletree and Peabody hotels, so there's no need to drive if you're staying there. I'd highly-recommend this spot if you're looking to chill and enjoy great food and service.

My husband and I were in the downtown area and decided to visit Kooky Canucks for the first time. We were very pleased with the $7.99 lunch selection. This menu offered salads, sandwiches and plates. I had a plate with grilled chicken breast that came with two sides and hubby had a Canadian club with fries. The sides selection included a great variety. Good food at a reasonable price. We will return.

What better place to celebrate Canada Day in Memphis than Kooky Kanuck?! I wouldn’t say their full menu is from Canada – certainly their eggroll appetizer wasn’t but it was tasty! I ordered the Canada Day special which my husband and I shared. I could never have finished it on my own and, in fact, ended up taking about a quarter of my half of the burger home! The poutine was good but I’d request more cheese curd next time. The maple bread pudding is not something I would likely have ordered on my own but it was delicious! A great and filling meal with some really big cocktails at a reasonable price. We had a great server and I am sorry that I don’t remember her name; she made the visit even more pleasant.

My sister told me to go to Kooky Canuck since her friends owned the restaurant. I was downtown after going the National Rights Civil Museum. Noticed their location was across the street from The Peabody Memphis. Stopped bye for a late lunch, had the “Memphis Best.” It was delicious. If I was not in a company vehicle, it’s a place to have adult beverages and socialize with friends and family. My server was Davin, he was attentive to providing refills and etc. If back downtown, my try something else or just stick to a sure thing.

We only had a normal sized burger but you can order a 12 or even 25 pound burger! There are photos on the wall of those who have succeeded in eating those large burgers. The menu has a lot of burger options. We had a large portion of french fries that came with the burgers. They were great but it was a lot of food. Definitely worth eating here if you're in the mood for a great burger!

I took my kids there based upon the kids' menu that they posted outside of the restaurant. The kids enjoyed the food, and especially the smores that they let you roast at the table. This is a cute good restaurant for families based upon those reasons alone. I would recommend this place to families.

Being Canadian we wanted to try this restaurant while in Memphis. Love that there’s so much maple 🍁on the menu! I got the maple bacon burger and my husband got the steak with maple marinade ! Both were delicious. We were lucky enough to be there on a Tuesday and got giant 34 oz cocktails half price, $6 ! I think it was called ‘Thirsty Tuesday’. The drinks were also delicious. Service was great and the prices are very reasonable. We got street parking close by but there is a parking lot in the next block too. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Not expecting anything more than mediocre bar food, I was delighted by my lunch experience here. I was in a bit of a rush and, at the suggestion of Sara, my very attentive server, I ordered the shaved ribeye sandwich with au jus. I was asked how I wanted it cooked so I asked for medium rare. Honestly, I expected it to be overcooked and somewhat dry. Boy, was I wrong. It was perfectly cooked and served with fresh, hand-cut fries that were piping hot. It was PERFECT! One of the best French Dip sandwiches I’ve had, and I have had a lot. I cannot say enough about the superior service provided by Sarah. She ensured that my experience was nothing short of memorable. I highly recommend having a meal here when in Memphis. You will not be disappointed.

Go here. The burgers are fantastic! The service is amazing and you get an astonishing amount of food for what you pay. We got two poutine burgers and fries and it was all we could do to eat it all! And, only $34 for that and two beers! It was an amazing value and I couldn't recommend it enough. I wish I could get our waitress a shout because she was top notch!

We stopped by for a beer, and were pleasantly surprised. The beer specials are great. Davin the bartender was friendly, entertaining and a great guy. We didn't eat as we had just had lunch, but the food coming out from the kitchen looked amazing and everyone around us devoured it.

1st night in Memphis and popped into Kooky for a quick bite to eat. 4 of us enjoyed the nachos with grilled chicken, 1lb of buffalo wings, catfish poor boy and the steak n potato soup. Got to say HUGE portions , all served very hot and tasty. So it’s a thought to share a meal. Our server was Connie who we all agreed made our evening. She was friendly professional, attentive and knew the menu. Thank you much recommended.

We ate at several places in Memphis and everywhere we ate was terrible until we tried this place. Bring your appetite they serve large quantities of food. Burgers, Poutine, and salads were had at our table and every bite was amazing. The staff were nice and friendly and we didn’t wait long for our food. The prices were very reasonable too.

Our group was wandering around, looking for a place for lunch and stopped to check out the menu. So many options! We were quickly seated and our server was fantastic. Quick, personable, professional. We all ordered different salads and were amazed at their sizes and pleased with the taste. Five happy campers! We would happily go back to explore the menu further.
