Enjoy the Best Meal on Beale at the Blues City Cafe in beautiful Memphis, Tennessee. The Blues City menu includes such favorites as our Famous BBQ Ribs, Southern Fried Catfish, Broiled Steaks, and the Worlds Best Homemade Tamales. Our friendly staff and world famous menu has drawn the attention of presidents and celebrities alike. We have been featured Nationally on The Travel Channel"s "A Taste of America", The Food Network's "Bobby Flay Show", Bon Apetit Magazine's "BBQ Issue" and HDNET's "Drinking Made Easy". Blues City also features nightly live entertainment in The Band Box. Everything from Rock-A-Billy with Hillbilly Casino and the Stunning Cunning Band, to Blues with Earl the Pearl, to a Sun Studio Revue with Gary Hardy and the Memphis2. Come on down to the Blues City Cafe and have a great meal and dance the night away on Beale Street.

"This is a poor tasting for what Memphis is famous.  The ribs were dry.  I've had better bbq sauce out of a bottle.
I will say, the Texas toast and catfish were delish.  Catfish has never been a favorite of mine.  The one served here was very good.  Now, I know why it's a staple on Southern menus."

Rustic; Wood-fired; Sustainable and seasonal. These are the hallmarks of the dishes that can be enjoyed during breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. Many of the dishes draw inspiration from the wonderful fresh-baked breads produced right next door at our Bakery. And all of our meals feature organic, seasonal and sustainable ingredients, many of which are prepared in the kitchen's wood-fired oven and rotisserie, which allow for long-cooked flavors, and for the simple, fresh ingredients to shine.

"five of us had lunch here yesterday. We had 3 adults one teenager and one preteen. the ingredients were fresh. The food was delicious. we decided we have to go back for dessert someday.
The service was great. It was friendly, attentive and efficient.
The outside dining area would have been perfect. trouble is it fronts an extremely busy parking lot. It didn't seem to bother the people who opted to sit outside.
I plan to go back someday."
