We recently stopped by BB Kings Blues Club at Pointe Orlando for a little soul music and southern hospitality.

The first thing you see as you enter BB Kings is a nifty little gift shop:
Inside the restaurant, which is somewhat dark and slightly decorated–the way you might imagine a blues club should be–there is a large stage, four bar areas, and lots of seating.
We were visiting around 1:00pm, and as you probably suspect a venue like this doesn’t see a crazy lunch rush. Nevertheless, many seats were filled and the music was flowing. Check out my YouTube video:
The menu features Southern and Cajun fair such as BB King’s Famous Lip Smacking Ribs, Chicken Fried Chicken, and a Catfish Po Boy. Here’s a shot of the menu and some of the table art:
We ordered the Fried Dill Pickles to start and the Chopped BBQ Pork Sandwich as our entree. Good stuff:
The food, although pretty basic in its presentation, was very good. In particular, the pulled pork was juicy and delicious.
Our total with two sodas came to $23.43, not bad at all consider the entertainment value. Overall I really enjoyed stepping into the shadows of the blues club for a refreshingly smooth lunch experience. In the sea of common restaurants on International Drive, BB King’s Blues Club offers is a more memorable and musical dining option.
Now I just have to make it back in the evening to see the club when it is swingin’.
