Blues City Cafe: Cold food, poor service
We ate here, and were not very impressed. The food was brought to our table quickly, but was almost cold. We order drinks which the waiter forgot to bring- I found another waiter and told him, and he was rude and said he wasn't serving our section. This place was very busy, and is obviously popular, and the prices are OK. But we were very disappointed in the food and the service.
Blues City Cafe: By the Pound
Catfish is the specialty of the area, so you might want to try that. Otherwise, perhaps some meat. Like the six-pound sirloin. Everyone seems to love the place, and I'm no exception. The food is good, and the service is impeccable.
Favorite Dish: I got a Memphis steak, to honor the fact that I was in Memphis. Can't say I was disappointed.
Blues City Cafe: Best Ribs!
This place is always crowded on the weekends, service is never great, but some of the food is amazing.
Favorite Dish: The ribs are very tender, the meat falls off of the bones. The sauce is sweet and has a great flavor. I would avoid the "World Famous Steaks" as I found them to be without seasoning. Stick with the ribs!
Blues City Cafe: Best Ribs in town
The restaurant is not the best looking in the world, but the food is the best on Beale Street. Lots of famous people including Bill Clinton have been known to frequent. Tom Cruise has visited and there is even a scene in 'The Firm' with Tom at one of the booths.
Favorite Dish: The ribs are the best I have tasted, you can buy them by the full rack or half rack. All served with fries, beans, coleslaw and texan toast. Other great items on the menu are the Catfish and the crab stuffed mushrooms.
