This restaurant has some interesting paper mache artwork on the walls with presidential themesl The food is not tasty or that good. The hamburger I had was as devoid of taste of beef as any I have had in years. The salad while generous was not special in taste. The dressing was forgettable. The service was friendly, prompt and appreciated.... More

Being from Toronto, we're hardly experts in southern cooking. But, we definitely enjoyed the selections at KSB after a walking tour of Alexandria. The food was very tasty and the novelty of deep fried steak and spinach pie made for an interesting meal. The atmosphere is warm and cheerful. The spinach pie was light and flavourful - a pleasant surprise... More

I enjoyed my meal at King Street Blues on a cold weeknight in November. The restuarant was not busy which dampened the ambiance a bit. I had BBQ which was good, but not the best I've had. My server did a fine job. Given the lack of activity I sort of expected a little more attention. I had to wait... More

Our family stayed in an Alexandria hotel and ventured out for dinner one evening. I looked this restaurant up online in advance to check out the menu. Everything sounded yummy even though the prices were a little more than what I wanted to spend. Our growling tummies prompted our decision to go. We dined on the first floor near the... More

This is a small, 3-Story tavern that is fun. The food's not so hot unless you like a lot of deep-fried items. The staff and management are great people and we had a wonderful time visiting with family and friends.

Server was unqualified. Could not answer questions about the menu, and "forgot" to put in one of our orders, so 4 out 5 ate while one waited, and waited. Food was overdone as in dead and dried out. You needed BBQ to choke it down. You can certainly do better in Old Town.

As you can tell by the title - very good ribs. Great portions and great service. Kind of surprised this place exists here but it is worth the time to stop for lunch or dinner. Reasonably priced. I had fall off the bones rib done right almost over cooked but they were well seasoned and good tasting without being dried... More

I have eaten here several times in the past, so I seriously recommended it to Matt. Our server, who was also the bartender was friendly and fast. Our drinks were great. Matt's jambalaya pasta was fine, but nothing special. My BBQ "Mambo Combo" had dry chicken, tough brisket, and boring ribs. The cole slaw was inedible. We will not be... More
