I was there this past Sunday and loved the décor and service. Very relaxed atmosphere and a nice menu. I had the brisket sandwich with their hand cut chips that were crunchy and warm. Their house made hot sauce was fantastic.

We had people in their 60s, 40s, 30s, teens and two under age 5. We all enjoyed the fun decor, great food and service. Thanks for making our reunion gathering fun! What a hit!

We've eaten here before, but after reading other TA reviews we decided to try the ribs. It was an excellent choice. The portion was generous and the meat fell off the bone. The restaurant was crowded, but the server did a great job of making sure we had everything we needed.

After reading some of the other reviews I was skeptical of Its my Street Blues. I found our food was excellent! We ordered the Cats and Dogs and a full rack of ribs. The portion of the food was excellent. Food was hot. The cat fish was the best I've had in a long time! I have no complaints and... More

This restaurant is about a half block off of King Street, the trolley stops on the corner in both directions.The food was excellent (ribs were tender and not over sauced). We would not have found it if we hadn't seen an ad for it.

We're probably biased in favor of this restaurant because we used to take the kids there when they were little and were distracted enough by the funky decor to get through the meal in peace. We just went back, and the food is still great. We started with chicken and chili quesadillas (ok), then had pig salad, a cheddar jack... More

Having eaten here previously, we chose this fun, funky place for a group dinner of about 18 adults and 14 kids. They accommodated us nicely with a semi-private third floor loft, and provided us with adult and kids menus with several choices at a fixed rate. Unfortunately the servings and quality of the adult meals did not live up to... More

My family and I were with a large group and KSB was very accommodating. I had the ribs which were fine, but, honestly, if you call your ribs "famous" they should be memorable. These ribs were good but not as good as I expected. The rest of the party had a mix gumbo, chicken, fish and kids meals. Everyone enjoyed... More

We ate here on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. They're serve a good selection of barbecue and comfort food. I had the chicken fried steak and it was delicious. My wife had a pulled pork sandwich and loved it. It is not fancy and the ambiance is funky but the food is really good. The service... More
