B.B. King's doesn't pack fans in like anchovies as so many music spots do, and the down-home grub is downright eatable. Indeed, the rock-shrimp popcorn is amazing—hot and greaseless; the pulled-pork sandwich is good enough, as is the tempura-fried calamari; and the Cajun cobb comes with smoked ham, bacon, and deviled eggs as good as Mom's.

Recommended Dishes

Shrimp popcorn, $14; fried calamari, $14
