The food

If you’d like to enjoy dinner at B.B. King’s Blues Club, we recommend making a reservation.The hostesses here always seem to have a lineup. Perhaps an indicator of the quality of the food and entertainment here!

Choose from starters like fried dill pickles, Memphis wings or the nachos. Topped with jalapeno cheese sauce, pico de gallo and BBQ sauce, these aren’t your ordinary nachos.

For your main course, go with one of B.B. King’s signature dishes like the Lip Smacking Ribs, the Chopped BBQ Pork Platter, the Hickory Burger or the Chicken Fried Chicken (served with creamy mac and cheese). It’s delicious but try and save room for dessert! You must try the banana bread pudding.

The entertainment

Enjoy live entertainment every night of the week at one of the only venues in the area offering live music. From smooth, soulful jazz to fast, funky blues it all sounds great in this cool atmosphere, washed down with a cold beer. Check out the entertainment calendar before you plan your night out and plan your date around the band you most want to see.
