JJ’s Tropical Mexican Bar and Grill is embarking on an exciting journey, expanding its array of international flavors and tropical cocktails to a brand-new East Memphis location.
Nestled within the Shoppes of Hacks Cross at 3750 Hacks Cross Road, owner Jose “JJ” Miranda fortuitously stumbled upon this location and made a spur-of-the-moment decision to open a second restaurant.
Miranda, drawing from his extensive background in the Mexican restaurant scene, has a definite sense of purpose. Reflecting on his career in the industry, he candidly stated, “I didn’t want to be working for the man; I wanted to be the man.”
Thanks to the restaurant’s mouthwatering meals, captivating cocktails, and the invaluable support of his family, Miranda’s aspirations have blossomed into reality, with JJ’s Tropical gaining significant popularity among both online and in-person visitors.
As this new venture unfolds, patrons can look forward to the same delicious cuisine and lively atmosphere that JJ’s Tropical has consistently served at its original Cordova location. Classic favorites like the renowned build-your-own bowls and signature handcrafted cocktails, including the Te-Kill-Ya Margaritas, will continue to be available, alongside all-new appetizer additions.
With Miranda aiming to open the doors to this second location sometime between mid and late December 2023, the excitement is palpable. JJ’s Tropical is shaping up to be a must-visit location for food enthusiasts everywhere, bringing the best of Mexican-inspired cuisine to Memphis.
