Description: This is the original B.B. King's Blues Club located in Memphis, Tennessee, the home of American blues music, legendary musicians, famous barbecue, historic landmarks and great basketball. With live entertainment every night of the week - from authentic blues to classic soul and rock and roll - and a menu full of Southern favorites, the club is a popular destination spot on Memphis' historic Beale Street. The club offers a full menu comprised of a variety of the South's most delicious comfort foods influenced by flavors from New Orleans all the way to the Mississippi Delta, including authentic Memphis-style barbecue. You MUST stop in for our award winning ribs that are some of the best in town - which says a lot for a town known for the world class barbecue! Open daily for lunch, dinner and late night meals, the intimate restaurant and live music venue has some of the finest local entertainment in town live on stage nightly as well as national touring performers. B.B. King's offers several creative options to meet your event needs. With a unique layout, the club has several different areas available for booking that perfect venue space for a variety of events - from birthday parties and family reunions to wedding receptions and corporate events.

A co-worker and I were in Memphis on business. It was a cold November night in Memphis (it had snowed the night before), so Beale Street was kind of dead. We were looking for somewhere to get barbeque and live music, and ended up at BB King's. The BBQ ribs and chicken (and beer) were excellent, and the show put on by Memphis Jones was incredible. Not only are these guys incredibly musically, MJ tells the stories behind the songs - of the performers, songwriters, and studio gurus that made the Memphis sound famous. Stories that I, as a 30+ year musician, was not aware of.

Thanks for a wonderful evening. can't wait to do it again the next time I am in town!

Food is not exceptional but it is not bad either.
The service is not very fast and there were a lot of mistakes made in our orders, admit we were with 11 which makes it no so easy.

I've been to BB Kings many times. It never fails to impress! The musical talent is always good, the food is excellent for a club, and the atmosphere is overall great.

Mind you this is a club with loud music and limited space. It's not somewhere to go for an intimate evening - it's a place to hang out, listen to music, have a few drinks and some good grub.

My only downer would be the limited amount of space, and there is always someone in the bathroom handing out towels, trying to suck up tips.
