Stopped in for live Blues show and food. Food is always consistently good here and a good value. You won't get cheated at this Bealle Street Club. Sit at front window bar so Nikki can take of you. She is the best.

In my opinion, BB King’s completes the Beale Street experience. The food is....good, as is the music. It’s louder outside than inside....So that’s good. The $5 cover charge annoyed me, since we were having dinner, but....It is what it is. If you prefer a quieter...More

We visited on a Saturday evening. There was a $5 cover charge each but I only paid a $1 for the two of us as I’d picked up a voucher at the visitor centre in the way into Memphis. The music is great and I...More
