Love the pulled pork sandwich, garlic mashed potatoes and jambalya. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly wait staff.

“Just OK”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

Kids always like it, but I've never been thrilled. Service seems spotty and food is either good, or not. I tend to dismiss coming here unless outvoted by the group

“Good Neighborhood Restaurant”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

King Street Blues, located in the Kingstown Shopping Center, is a good neighborhood restaurant in Alexandria. The New Orleans-themed restaurant has a menu covering everything from hamburgers to "comfort food" to Louisiana Po' Boys. The nacho platter appetizer is quite unique and worth trying. This is not a fast food place, and it is obvious from the taste and quality of the food that care has been taken in its preparation. While the restaurant can get a bit noisy at times, it is a fun place to go with friends. The service is always good and there is plenty of parking -- a real plus in most Alexandria neighborhoods.

“OK, but there are better options nearby.”
Reviewed August 20, 2011

I frequent this restaurant once a week during the summers as I have drinks and dinner there with a group of friends. The food is not tops, but I still eat here because of the group. There are not many healthy options available. I've tried almost everything except the burgers and it has always been so, so. For example, the barbecue is not the best in the area, the quesadillas and the tortilla soup is not real tex mex. The soup has way too many tomatoes. I don't even eat the spinach salad anymore. Friends seem to stick with the caesar salad with chicken, chicken wings, hamburgers and the great beer. It always pains me to spend money here when there are so many great places around the corner. I've been tempted to try the Dairy Queen next door, but this is a lot healthier. I'll still come here because of my friends.
