I was first introduced to the Memphis Blues restaurant about 4 years ago and I keep coming back. Both locations you can expect high quality BBQ and friendly staff. I'm a big fan of the downtown patio. Great place to grab an ice cold beer,...More

I was in Kelowna 2 years ago, and tried out Memphis Blues in the heart of downtown. It was great. We had a platter, and I was over the moon about the sausage, bbq sauce and cornbread. We just got back from Kelowna again, and...More

Thank you for your comments. We have been to Memphis many times, including stints in Dallas & throughout Mississippi and can say, without a doubt, that our food is overall better than anything we had throughout our trips. We use apple wood to smoke all...More

I would recommend one of the combo platters. Between the four adults and two teenagers, we had the platter that was suggested for 2-4 people plus a smoked chicken sandwich and salad plate and it was more than enough, and it worked out to be...More

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat. The atmosphere is kinda cool, lots of blues pictures/signage. The food was just ok. We just ordered the Nachos, would NOT recommend. They only come with pulled-pork and cheese and bbq sauce, no vegetables. Served local beer...More

Thank you for your question. We do not use nuts other than walnuts on site - no peanuts whatsoever. However, we do use bread from a bakery that is NOT nut-free and cannot guarantee that there will not be traces of peanuts... More

Interior Health regulations do not allow dogs on patios. Despite this, we can sometimes accommodate if no one else is out there! Best to call us directly to inquire.
