B.B. King's Blues Club Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Suffice to say no one goes to B.B. King's remarkable blues club for the food. The draw is the amazing range of live acts such as James Brown, Sonny Rollins, and Gregg Allman that appear nightly. If you are starving and must eat, order something barbecued and hope for the best.
