    I had a great time at this place! Seating took a while but boy was it worth it! Baby back ribs,sweet potato fries, baked beans are great what I didn't like: the coleslaw was bland.

    Memphis Jones band plays GREAT covers of Memphis music! And adds local stories about the songs and artists. Food and service were great (530 pm show).

    Wow those shrimps n grits! Unbelievable! Spicy, earthy, buttery comfort! Also fried pickles were quite good. Perfectly fried, thinly sliced, on point pickling.

    The Memphis dry rub ribs are tasty and BB's Blues Brew pairs well. For dessert, try the bourbon pecan pie.

    Very loud — but I guess that's what people go here for. I will say that the food is good. Anyway, here for a business dinner, so not much say in the matter.

    The Will Tucker Band is absolutely amazing. 5-8:30 Friday and Saturday. He may be my son, but he really can burn up that blues guitar. I won't lead you wrong!

    Great atmosphere! I was shocked you have to pay a cover charge in addition to buying your food. Service was not too good but food and atmosphere were.

    Sounding like a professional musician when you are on a budget is tough. Seismic Audio Speakers gives you high quality performing gear at rock bottom wholesale prices!

    If you are staying in the Peabody, the hotel con. can give you a coupon so you don't have to pay the cover charge. Only $5 but still a saving.

    B.B. King's is a very short walk away from Tom Lee Park. Stop in if you need a break from Memphis in May.

    Good music, horrible everything else...It took 45mins for appetizers and just as long for meals. Food is overpriced and barely average bar-food. Soiling the good name of BB King.

    Great music, delicious ribs. Painfully slow service, worst I've received anywhere in a long time. And this was on a Sunday night; the place was not busy at all. Too frustrating, I won't return.
