Amazing ribs! Right on Beale Street. If there is a line, it’s worth it.Don’t let “cafe” fool you. Full service bar too!

Okay-our work ordered from here-and let me just tell you, this place is GOOD!!!! We got a whole assortment of bagels, lox, and cream cheese. My favorite part was the vegan cream cheese, and I'm not even vegan!!! :)

While on a business trip to Memphis, Tennessee, the client mentioned wanting to revisit a restaurant that she was familiar with for some Memphis-style barbeque within walking distance from our hotel. By the time I had reached the hotel, she was already at the restaurant. It was only .5 miles from my hotel, which was fine. Besides, after endless restaurant closures, working from home, I needed the exercise, and I didn't mind the walk at sundown. As I walked up, one of their employees greeted and welcomed me. I advised him that I was looking for a friend. Suddenly I located her in the rear at the bar; there is another bar area immediately to the right of the entrance. The bartender went by "Daddy," at least that was the joke. You see, he was wearing a hat that read, Daddy. No name tag, just the hat that read, Daddy. So, I said, "Hey, Daddy, I'm ready to order." He looked at me and said, "See her? She can call me Daddy. So, can her.....her....and her. But you......(long pause), just joking, what can I get you?" We ordered their three tamales with a bowl of chili, full rack of ribs, baked beans, coleslaw, red potatoes with Texas toast. Plus, the customer added the golden fried catfish plate with fries. We had some leftover, but everything was great, nothing too dry, and their ribs were out of this world. Also, they have closed captions on every TV, which is great for the deaf and hard of hearing customers. Like I've always said, having a bunch of TVs going with packed restaurants makes no sense. Thank you, Blues City Café.
