King Street Blues

The best thing about this place is the atmosphere. My father tells me to get the chili and ribs, but I'm not going back to find out. The 'chili mac' is a rendition of oven-baked cheese-logged mac & cheese with canned green chilis mixed in. I ordered a side of it and just taking one look at it, I decided not to stick a fork in it. Gross. The BBQ sauce on the table ran like it was just brown liquid and tasted like a vinegary ketchup. I ordered a simple pulled pork sandwich but somehow even that was disappointing. Our waiter stood lurking a few tables away from us, waiting to pounce constantly. I was hesitant in coming here to begin with, and I walked out feeling as though I had not only wasted money and calories, but that I will gladly never return.

King Street Blues is in an old row house off King Street in Old Town. It specializes in, well, a sort of trucker-southern-road house cuisine, and it's all good. The restaurant itself is quaint, has a number of levels with varying decoration, a great staff, and a meeting area on the first floor before you're escorted upward. The bowl dishes are tasty, satisfying, and cheap. Ribs, chicken, and the rest are generous. A wonderful place to relax, too. And for those of you who like carbs, a friend a couple years back appeared there and liked the Blues fries so much, she also had to try their potato salad and mashed potatoes. Honest.
