Best Food in Collierville

In a previous blog post, we discussed the best restaurants in Collierville, but you can’t eat out every night of the week. Not only would it take a toll on your health, but it would empty out your wallet as well! So today, we’re discussing more casual, inexpensive options, including food that you can grab and go when you’re on the run. Scroll down to check out some of the best food in Collierville.

Best Food in Collierville


The sub sandwiches at Firehouse Subs may take a little longer to make than Subway (and cost slightly more), but that’s because they’re worth it. The service is friendly, the food is filling and scrumptious, and the sandwiches are made fresh to order. Try the Italian sub, a fan favorite, and don’t forget to check out the Coke machine, which offers numerous options including Raspberry Coke and Cherry Limeade.


You can’t go wrong with barbecue! If you aren’t too fussy with your food and you don’t mind Styrofoam plates and plastic silverware, enjoy the tasty barbecue at Captain John’s. The catfish is highly praised, as are classic BBQ dishes like pulled pork and beef sandwiches. You’ll find classic Southern sides here as well, like slaw, onion rings, and fries.


When you’re craving caffeine, head to Square Beans. Known for its cozy atmosphere (perfect for reading, chatting, or people watching) Square Beans features delicious coffees, teas, and specialty drinks as well as cafe food like salads and sandwiches and desserts like gelato and cookies. Plus, it’s located just off the town square!


Fried food may not be healthy, but it sure is delicious! For a guilty pleasure, stop by Zaxby’s for chicken tenders, chicken wings, or their popular fried mushrooms. They offer a variety of barbecue sauces as well as sides like slaw, fries, and Texas toast. And if you’re in a rush, simply swing by the drive-through!


When you want to treat yourself (or your friends!) to a decadent donut, try Sam’s Donut Shop. This local shop offers a great selection of scrumptious, affordable donuts. Plus, for those who prefer savory foods, their Pigs in Blankets are sure to hit the spot. Bring cash or your checkbook, because they don’t take credit or debit cards.


If you’re in the mood for something sweet, especially in the warm summer months, try Mama D’s. Their authentic Italian ices and pudding pops are sure to please. Plus, their flavors change throughout the year, and they have a great selection of ices and pops to try. Although Mama D’s has served tasty treats at farmers’ markets for years, their brick-and-mortar storefront in Collierville has only been around since 2014.

So what do you think? Did we mention your favorite casual eatery amongst our picks for the best food in Collierville? Although we’ve tried to highlight small and locally owned stores, we can’t deny the popularity of chains like Chick-fil-A, Starbucks, McAlister’s Deli, Sonic, and Subway. These chain restaurants are perfect when you’re in a pinch.

Bon appétit!
