Tasted ~ Wiles-Smith Drugstore





Several locals recommended this eatery to us early in our move to Memphis. Christopher, who lived in a small southern town where a local drugstore held a similar restaurant gem, was pretty ecstatic that a city of Memphis' size supported such a rarity even down to its retro decor. After making a mental list of family and friends we would take on their next visit to Memphis, we realized we'd never once taken Atticus before.

Here's what we tasted this past weekend on Atticus' first visit.
{Atticus} PB&J
{Christopher} Chili and Egg Salad Sandwich
{Sophorn} Chicken Salad Plate and Beef Stew
{All of Us} One chocolate milkshake, widely regarded as the best milkshake in town {we concur}.

So although the food was good, it'll be the milkshake that will keep bringing us back.

Your photos are amazing. They make Wiles Smith look exotic.

This truly is the best milkshake in town, and we grew up going to Wiles' Drug Store. It is one of the most revered places in Midtown and something that gives us a sense of continuity. Joe's Milk Shake is extra thick, just like Joe used to make them. We loved going to sit at the counter and talk to Joe!
