$20 for $40 Worth of BBQ and Cajun Food

Black-eyed Sally's dinner menu features award-winning barbecue and cajun cuisine, including fried green tomatoes ($5.95), beef brisket sandwiches ($10.95), St. Louis pork ribs ($16.95, half rack; $24.95, full rack), and shrimp and grits ($17.95). The lunch menu includes a mix of appetizers, sandwiches, and big plates at slightly modified prices.

Black-eyed Sally's

Black-eyed Sally's owner James Varano opened this BBQ-and-blues southern juke joint after an inspiring trip to Memphis in 1995. His re-creation of a southern blues club, complete with New Orleans-style dishes and country barbecue, caught the approving attention of The New York Times, which praised the "blackened catfish ... with its tasty sides of oven-roasted sweet potatoes, collard greens and a cilantro-lime cream saucing."

Lunch at Black-eyed Sally's can be a quick affair, with a po'boy sandwich, cajun burger, or a big plate of crispy cornmeal catfish (complete with salt-n-vinegar fries and slaw). But dinner is the time to linger. After eating a rack of ribs—which are dusted with a dry rub for 24 hours, slow-smoked over hickory wood, and finished with a touch of BBQ sauce—you can settle in and wait for the show to start.

The restaurant also started attracting some of music's biggest stars. Over the years, Graham Nash, Dave Matthews, Clarence Clemons, and other rockers have dropped in to jam (or just get their barbecue fix). Live music starts at 8 p.m. most nights, with a mix of jazz, blues, and rock acts. Check out the music schedule here.
