Huey's is a chain of restaurants and bars located in Memphis, Tennessee. Founded in 1970 by Alan Gary, it has been voted "Best Burger" by Memphis Magazine every year since 1984. Huey's has also been voted "Best Pub Grub" and "Best Beer Selection" in Memphis Magazine's Readers Restaurant Poll. Famous for its "Huey's Burger," the chain operates 7 locations spread across the city. After being founded by Alan Gary in 1970 as an attempt to "create a bar that was fun and unique," Huey's was purchased by Thomas Boggs in 1976. The company now operates under the corporate body Uncle Donald's Restaurant LLC, which is still run by the Boggs family.
The chain also hosts a yearly "toothpick guessing contest" to benefit the Memphis Zoo. In a tradition started by Boggs, customers pay $1 to guess how many toothpicks (which restaurant guests blow into straws to fire onto the ceilings) cover the ceilings.
