    Come here for the blues, not the food. Bring cash for the beer bucket guy if it's crowded, you may never make it back from the bar!

    The best view is from either a booth or right up front. If you grab a booth, be sure to have the 38oz sharing steak. – Pete from One eskimO

    BB Kings Ale is made by Magic Hat and tastes just like their #9 beer just a bit hoppier. The hot wings are expensive but very good.
