B.B. King would not have played at this club- he played blues. House band played pop music and prince. Room to dance but look for real music elsewhere

Visited their first weekend in May for lunch. Surprised that there was a cover charge in the middle of the day. Other than that the food was good, service was fine. This is a great introduction to Memphis blues.

We're heading to Memphis this summer and have 2 teenagers. Are minors allowed at BB King's or is it classified as a night club where one must be an adult to gain entry?

We saw kids in there. I would say its family friendly
How easy is it get seated on Friday and Saturday nights? I tried making reservations but don't do reservations on weekends.

Get there earlt..about 7 and no problem. Even later is not bad as there is a high turnover, especially at band breaks. The place is deceptively huge
Would love to stop in on our way through town. Is there RV parking near by? We don't mind walking.
