The summer is starting to open up as businesses start to flourish after the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Restaurants and entertainment facilities closed around the world, while Americans struggled to keep themselves occupied during the shut in moments. The vibe of the world went down, while accommodations for businesses had to be blue printed, and people as well had to change the routines of their everyday lives. Yet out of all the catastrophes and all the disappointing moments we have faced during this tragic time, there’s one thing that did not change, the soul and entertainment in Memphis, that was indeed through food, by businesses man and entertainment wizard Curtis Givens.
Eat Big Bill’s , A Modern Vibe
From talking to Givens, he expressed the importance of reaching all crowds when it comes to entertainment , especially in the food world, “you know, everybody got to eat,” said Givens. This was his reasoning of collaborating with Big Bill and turning the organization to a modern barbque resturant. We sat at the clean bar, which was throughly sanitized per customer, every other minute and through operation hours. The facility kept cleanness a priority while in the midst of COVID-19, keeping it safe for the people. Not to mention, the new spot opened within the madness, but Curtis praised God abundantly throughout the time of opening during the chaos. “It’s a blessing to open and be able to present good food to people even in the midst of this tragedy,” he said, “God really has anyone who is still opening during this time in the palm of his hands.” Curtis explained how seeing people smile when they ate the fresh off the grill entrees was such an enjoyment, not only that, yet watching them express much gratitude and say positive comments about the scenery. What’s even more interesting, his wife created the map of the interior for Eat Big Bills from her decorative eye. “My wife actually designed this whole area, the tables and everything,” he expressed. The fairly new location is located in the heart of East Memphis, making a sharp left as soon as one exit the expressway, towards Kirby Road, eating here will not leave you dissatisfied.

Big Bill’s also have a full bar operating each open day of the week!
Not too much about the decor, or the music that plays 90s R&B, we must get into what all of Memphis has been waiting devour on a week to week basis, the food. I had the privileges of trying some of the food, and I could say the flavor from the fresh grilled salmon had my taste buds at attention. There is a menu that one must go by, but this blog in fact will express the crowd favorites, surely you would be willing to try them. “Oh, the millennials they loooove the smoked salmon sandwich,” said Curtis, “they cannot get enough of it.” From taking my first bite into the entree, I believed every word that was said. The food was fresh and like Curtis expressed, he and Big Bill are deep within the quality of what is being served.
