“Great location, quiet, good view...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Staff at the Westin are friendly and knowledgeable without being 'in your face'. The lounge has a comfortable, quiet atmosphere. Can't beat the location of this hotel....

“Great food and fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Great southern BBQ meat. The pulled pork and the beef brisket are incredibly good. I really enjoyed the sides and the corn bread. The atmosphere is fun and staff are friendly.

“Wouldn't write home about it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Stopped in at the Robson location for a quick lunch before heading back to the office. Chose the small smoked brisket sandwich, which comes with a small paper cup full of colelsaw and another one full of lukewarm baked beans. The brisket was slathered with a virtually tasteless bbq sauce, and the meat itself consisted of thick slabs that were definitely not fall-off-the-bone tender. And again, the meat was virtually tasteless. No smokiness; no bbq taste. And the "sandwich" part of it was a generic style tasteless hamburger bun, the bottom piece breaking in two after my first bite of the sandwich. I'm giving it a 2 rather than a 1 only because the staff were friendly. I can't say anything about the other choices, but the smoked brisket sandwich is not a winner.

“Really like the beef brisket”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Been to two other Memphis Blues Barbeque House locations, Broadway and the Commercial Drive location, was glad to see this new one in downtown/Yaletown Vancouver which is closer to work and home. On this visit I had the beef brisket meal which was fantastic. Looking forward to my next visit and I highly recommend.
