With nearly 40 years of restaurant experience between John Bradley Wells and his wife, Lana, this duo is sure to be a success! Wells owned the Como Steak House in Como, Miss., for 10 years, worked for B.B. Kings for six years and has been general manager of Huey’s Downtown for the past four years. Lana was a nationwide corporate trainer for Ruby Tuesday and general manager of the Wolfchase location.

Their love for the downtown Memphis area, combined with opportunity and the knowledge of what it takes to run a successful restaurant business has inspired them to open Cockadoos. “Being Downtown for the last 10 years or so, I always had people asking me where they could get breakfast and with nothing right here on this main drag that did breakfast, we just felt like it was a great opportunity. Our intent is to serve the downtown area with good food, friendly service and a good dose of Southern hospitality.”

Just step into Cockadoos and soak up the old Memphis charm while enjoying some good ole’ Southern food.
