B.B. King's Blues Club Restaurant Review

: You can take in blues, soul, jazz or rock every night of the week, and there’s no need to worry about where to eat beforehand. From Memphis-style dry-rubbed ribs to a Creole basket of boiled seafood to a Carolina barbecue-glazed filet of salmon, the cooking is surprisingly good for a music club that’s popular with tourists. We also recommend the chicken-fried chicken with caramelized onion pan gravy and the sultry gumbo with chicken, andouille sausage and crawfish. There's also chili spaghetti, a little-known Southern comfort dish, as well as juicy ribs and steaks. For dessert, try the banana bread pudding. Be prepared for a very loud atmosphere, however, as this is a nightclub. There is full bar service, but don't expect much in the way of wine.
