Memphis Blues Barbeque House is continuing to spread the juicy gospel of succulent, slow-roasted Southern baah-bee-cue! The popular bbq joint has opened its sixth restaurant (and very first in Downtown Vancouver), located at 430 Robson Street, between Homer and Richards.
Memphis Blues serves up amazing southern grub, alongside their vast bourbon list and hand-picked selection of craft beer and wine. But now that founders George Siu and Park Heffelfinger have gone downtown, are they planning on doing anything differently?
“Naaaaah,” replies George matter-of-factly. “Everything about Robson will be what our customers have come to expect from Memphis Blues – killer southern barbeque, prices that are easy on any budget, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a comfortable atmosphere. What else is there?”
“Well for one,” continues Park, “We’re so close to the great sports and music arenas of our city that it’s so much easier to enjoy our food before or after the game or the show! Plus – there are three big-screen TVs so our customers can enjoy any of the away games with their friends and family.”
The new restaurant’s official grand opening celebrations are planned for next month, but it’s already open to the hungry public. What’s there to look forward to from the future Grand Opening events in July? They’re set to include limited-time discounts for their social media followers, Memphis Blues’ first Twitter “Meat Up”, as well as prizes, giveaways, succulent samples, music, and much more.
