Memphis BBQ & Blues Restaurant (West Palm Beach)
***** Memphis BBQ & Blues Restaurant, 1225 Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard, West Palm Beach, Florida 33401 (561) 832-8774.
BBQ “anything” is a tough call…It seems that everybody likes their bbq a “certain way.” Personally, I like Chinese-style ribs…but every so often I get in the mood for “smoked” stuff.
If smoked-ribs, pork, chicken, brisket is your game, I got a real-good bbq joint for you… Memphis BBQ & Blues Restaurant located in West Palm Beach. This is a relatively new joint…that’s been in business for less than a year and is “housed” in what use to be the famous Tom’s Place. Rather than rehashing history, Tom’s was a bbq joint that started out in Boca Raton something like 30 years ago and had various “machinations-reincarnations” over the years. Anyway… Memphis BBQ & Blues give or take a few new wall-decorations, looks just like Tom’s last spot did…nothing fancy, just loads of tables and chairs and tons of bbq/and southern-style stuff being served. At this juncture, take a look at Memphis BBQ & Blues’ website www.memphisbbqandblues.com for menu/prices.
Like I said before, smoked-isn’t really my game… but I have to tell that I did enjoy a “taste-test” of, baby-back bbq ribs, pulled pork sandwich, bbq beef brisket, bbq chicken, seafood gumbo, fried shrimp, macaroni & cheese and collard greens.
If you like smoked-bbq, you’ll really enjoy this joint. The menu is packed with all kinds of reasonably prices bbq dishes…not to mention fried stuff galore. Memphis is open 7 days a week from 11am–“until late in the evening.” By the way, various blues-musicians play during lunch-hours.
Memphis is very similar to Tom’s. The food is a little more cajun style. A lot of the old help stayed. Food is good.
