Steel Fist Riderz MC of Baton Rouge, Louisiana enjoyed every essence of Memphis & Beale St. with dinner at B.B. King’s. There was no wait. We entered & sat in reserved seating. The legendary band played to our enjoyment. The food was excellent. Price wasn’t of concern, if anything, that atmosphere was worth it. We definitely will revisit there when we return.

Lively atmosphere the band will encourage you to participate. So if you don't want to be singled out sit away from the stage, LOL. The food was tasty and satisfying. The cocktails were strong. People wore fancy outfits and jeans and anything in between and everyone was happy. Beale street is like a miniature Bourbon street and is not for the faint at heart. Enjoy!!!!!

Great lunch time service. The food was delicious and the server, Brandon, was very helpful and attentive. The band was just setting up so there was no live music at the time but still a great time.

It was terrific to be able to visit B. B. Kings while in Memphis. Les and his team did an outstanding job. Live music with great food and drinks was just what we needed. Thank you for delivering on all levels.

Had a fantastic dinner at BB King's. I had the fried chicken breast and it was the best fried chicken I ever had!! My husband and son both had the ribs and loves them, too. The service was great - very friendly and quick. We heard the King Beez perform and they were amazing. We will definitely be back on our next visit.

Took my parents to BBs and they loved it. Food was good but the standout was our waiter, he was awesome.
We enjoyed our lunch, prices were good for being a tourist spot.

Wonderful dinner while listening to not one but two bands (early and late evening) The ribs were excellent as was the beans and cole slaw. I also recommend the hush puppies as a side. The ambiance was most interesting-we sat at the Sam Coke table. It is a bit loud so we sat a bit further from the band which did allow some conversation. They do have a cover but the bands were worth it

Great live music. I had nachos which I didn’t care for and a margarita which wasn’t great. I’d probably stick with more traditional drinks next time. It may just have been what I ordered. My son loved his wings and the rest of my party devoured their food. Service was great, waitress was lovely and personable. Live music was great, atmosphere very cool. Would definitely recommend and go again.

The ribs were great, and the music was wonderful. Our server, Taylor, was the best. She anticipated our every need without being cloying. We really enjoyed everything about the place. They also have a selection of shooters, I got one with curaçao that was very good.
