We tend to eschew chains. With so many wonderfully individualistic choices, why go cookie-cutter? But there’s comfort in familiarity, and if Frenchmen Street’s crowds and scruffiness seem intimidating or overwhelming, BB Kings won’t. The multi-level room is spacious and accessible; the people-pleasin’ burgers, barbecue, beers and blues are reliable. Service isn’t perfect, but live music almost all day is a hard-to-find plus. Overall, a worthy addition to this part of the French Quarter.
