Blues City Cafe
Sink your teeth into some of the most talked-about BBQ Ribs and Southern favorites with a meal at Blues City Cafe, on Beale Street, in Memphis.
Take a seat in this historical restaurant for delicious meals or a cold beer. Located right across the street from B.B. King's in the heart of downtown, the Blues City Cafe is famous as the home of the late Chef Bonnie Mack, who brought back customers time and again with his famous recipes. The location was also used as a dinner-style cafe in The Firm with Tom Cruise, and the cafe's location along Beale Street means fantastic views of downtown Memphis.
While you're there, enjoy some of the delicious ribs, but keep in mind, those aren't the only great thing on the menu - you can also enjoy steaks, tamales, chicken, and fried catfish. Or you can enjoy a cold beer while listening to the other section of the cafe, entitled The Band Box, which features live entertainment. Free World, a local rock band, plays regularly at this venue.
If you are looking to lodge amidst all the great excitement along Beale Street, the Comfort Inn Downtown, Doubletree Hotel Memphis Downtown, or Hampton Inn are just a few downtown lodging options.
