Memphis Blues Barbeque House


1342 Commercial Dr.,
British Columbia,

Vancouver's vibrant Commercial Drive is known for ethnic diversity and culinary surprises, and Memphis Blues Barbecue House is no exception to that rule. Half fast-food joint and half family-style restaurant, this Southern transplant serves up sizable portions of (unsurprisingly) Memphis-style barbecue. Pulled-pork sandwiches, barbecued ribs, and catfish po'boys are among entrée specialties, alongside all the necessary "fixins" like corn bread, potato salad, and plenty of free-flowing sweet tea. Checkered tablecloths, Tennessee-kitsch (photos of Memphis music legends and street scenes), and plenty of soulful tunes round out the experience, and a paper towel roll on each table drives home the fact that Memphis Blues isn't about frills, it's about chowing down.
