Old Town Alexandria is really pretty successful in creating a very nice district for dining and shopping. However, as often happens, much of it is overrun by mundane cookie-cutter type places. King Street Blues offers a relief from this with a restaurant that is totally unique. The atmosphere is fun without being overpowering.
Our server was delightful and was really enthusiastic about the food. She was attentive without being overbearing and really knew the menu well.
The food was variations of southern style food, but had some unique spins on traditional southern favorites. The hushpuppies were very well done, but slightly bland. The BBQ beef on the other hand was perfect. The only disappointment in our meal were the ribs, they were too tough, without the finger-licking flavor you expect from a great rack of ribs.
Overall it was a fun experience, great food, for a reasonable price.
