The club offers a full menu comprised of a variety of the South’s most delicious comfort foods influenced by flavors from New Orleans all the way to the Mississippi Delta, including authentic Memphis-style barbecue.

  • It was the first time my wive was in Memphis. I looked for somewhere with a live band and found it. BB Kings has an excellent house band that plays a number of different music genres, no just blues...  more »
  • The only negative about my visit was that, with the COVID-19 restrictions, there wasn't much of a crowd, which would have made it a lot more fun.  more »

  • A must do in Memphis. This place is pretty much always packed but they seem to always have a spot to squeeze you in. The music and atmosphere are worth it. The food excellent. The service is usually slow because they are so busy.... just deal with it because it is what it is. The help is very nice though.
  • We ate dinner here. Our meals were great. Ribs, Chicken, slaw and baked beans. Dessert of white choc. Bread pudding was out of this world. Food was delicious, servers were very attentive. Music was great BB King All Star Band . I highly recommend this place,
