A Day on Beale Street

It is hard to think about Memphis, TN, and not think about the famous Beale Street. From music to food, Beale offers a lot to tourists and locals alike. I had the pleasure of spending a sunny Sunday afternoon with my family on Beale. We had tickets to the musical Memphis and we were able to grab a quick bite to eat prior to the play. We decided to try Blues City Cafe.

The first thing I noticed was all of the Elvis Presley paraphernalia hanging around the cafe. Of course this restaurant is known for Elvis's impromptu concert trying to persuade Sam Phillips to sign him to Sun Records.
The menu had a few selections to choose from. Most were from the fried side of life. I ordered the chicken tenders dinner while the hubs ordered The Best Meal on Beale (ribs, catfish beans and fries)

Chicken Tenders Dinner
Both meals were good. My chicken was tender and served with a honey mustard sauce. The fries were hot and crispy so I was a happy camper. A few other items featured on this menu consisted of tamales, catfish, steaks and various apps.

The ribs were very good. I've eaten a lot of ribs in my time. The rendeveux plan A isn't open on Sundsy's. The Memphis Musical is wonderful.
