On a first time trip to Memphis, Kings Palace Cafe caught my eye quickly as I was walking the city streets. In search of a high quality local restaurant, Taking a chance as I judged it on looks alone, boy was I in for a treat. A very diverse cajun menu with specialties in gumbo and etouffee was very hard to choose from, every dish is worth trying. After I took my first bite of shrimp and crawfish, I knew that this was the right place for me! If you enjoy classic cajun cooking and a lively atmosphere, Kings Palace Cafe is a MUST!

I loved the vibe here. I'm from out of state but have gone back several times, sometimes more than once per visit to Memphis. Feels just like the old blues bar it is. No famous names & the music takes you where you want to go. I loved the gumbo so last time I took my 85 year old Mom, the gumbo expert, & she loved it, too.

We made two stops at the King's Palace the night we were there. The first stop was to grab a quick drink and listen to the band. Our service was terrible on the first stop, but the drink - the Beale Street Blue - was fantastic! After walking around a bit more on Beale Street we headed back for another drink and sat at the bar. Didn't leave for the rest of the night! The band was great, the people were friendly - there was college ball on the tv's - but the best thing about the night? The bartender, Chuck. Not only did he make some incredible drinks, but he was fun, funny and intelligent. Make a pit stop there and meet him if you have time!
