I have been here many times in the past but never wrote a review. I always liked this place and never stopped going. They really have great food... I think it's one of the best in BC. The reason I chose to write a review today is due to this amazing beautiful manager at the broadway location. First I just... More

It was pouring rain when we dashed into Memphis Blues (although we went to the one on Broadway). We opened the door and were greeted with warmth and the amazing smell of BBQ. The Broadway location isn't large but it isn't tiny....there were a few tables for 2 as well as booths that sat up to groups of 5 adults.... More

If you love BBQ meats then this is a great place to try. Good selection of BBQ meats to try and share with your friends and family. Great food and a good experience.

This place is amazing!!! I don't say that lightly, the ambience of the place is spot on, it looks like now a bbq house should look, the music is more of an older vintage but perfectly fitting and the servers are really friendly! Now for the main point, the food! The portion sizes are massive, simple as that! They offer... More

Well I have been going to Memphis Blues for more than a few years now. But we normally go to the one on 1342 Commercial Dr Vancouver, BC but I was in the Broadway area close to Granville St. I was having a not so good day with walking due to my M.S and I found myself way to far... More

Huge portions, good service, yummy food. Worth going if the Deep South is too out of the way for you but you'd like to try it anyway... Enjoyed it a lot.

Was I wrong for being a Texan and trying barbecue in Canadia, ABSOLUTELY NOT!! This place was great. They piled sausage on top of brisket on top of pulled pork and then smothered it in delicious sauce between two buns. The sides were great too. This might have been my favorite part of my trip.

We were drawn in here due to the fact our mouths were watering from the smokehouse smell alone as we walked down Broadway. It's a great hole in the wall kind of place, super casual. Service is friendly, the food is excellent and there is so much meat on every plate it doesn't matter what you get, you will leave... More

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighbourhood Profile
Shaughnessy
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
