Great evening at this iconic venue on Beale Street.

Tables are available first come first served - not possible to book online - so arrive in good time to avoid appointment. We arrived at 7pm on a Sunday evening and the entertainment was already in full swing.

$10 cover charge per person on entry and worth every cent.

Great live music from accomplished musicians. Cool vibe in a relaxed and informal setting.

Excellent BBQ food with warm, friendly and attentive service.

Great evening and worth a visit if you’re in Memphis.

We were here earlier in the day, but did not go in due to a $10/person cover charge. We went back in the evening for dinner and music. The two bands we heard were terrific and played a variety of music beside Blues. That alone was worth the cover charge, which we were told goes to the bands.
I went for Chicken and Waffles. It was the first time I had it and I was surprised how good it was. The syrup, waffles, and chicken make for a delicious taste. My wife had a rack of ribs which she said was very good.
Music plus Good Food plus Good drinks makes for a must stop.

The food was amazing! The fried pickles are delicious and you can't go wrong with barbecue. There is a cover charge when there's a band but it was great to have some live entertainment.

We tried to book before we went but it appeared to be fully booked. However we were walking past and asked and went straight in and were given a table. I’m not sure you can actually book, or certainly it’s not necessary. There was a $10 cover charge but a lot of the music cafes have that. There were two bands on and both of them blew our minds. The food was really good. I had prawns and grits first time and we went a second time and I had ribs. My husband had a burger both times (it was so good the first time). The staff were really friendly, especially considering how busy they are.

The food, music and the atmosphere in BB Kings is awesome! Absolute must visit if you’re down Beale Street! The band we saw, was truly incredible!!!

Would have been 5 out of 5, however, the servers that served us weren’t very friendly and came across like they wanted to be there. Memphis is known for its Southern hospitality and the servers we had, truly weren’t hospitable at all!

But it was an incredible experience, and made my love for jazz/blues even more!

P.S. next door on the left is a BB Kings merchandise store which was great!
