B.B. King's Blues Club Reviews
We ate twice here and the food was really good both times. Very good service and banter, plus great music. Would definitely go again more »
My husband keen to really do the blues thing in Memphis - me not so much. I was blown away by the music at BB Kings Blues Bar. We also had the full rack of ribs A M A Z I N G 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,
