About Memphis Blues Barbeque House:

Launched by George Siu and Park Heffelfinger in Vancouverin September 2001, Memphis Blues Barbeque House celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2011, after serving tens of thousands of happy customers from all across the globe, winning dozens of awards, and garnering citywide and national acclaim – all in the name of spreading the juicy gospel of succulent, slow-roasted Southern baah-bee-cue.  Innovators from the start, they were the first casual self-serve restaurant in the city with a sophisticated twist to what is now a celebrated, but reasonably-priced wine list, recognized by Wine Access Magazine as being one of the ’50 Best Wine Restaurants in Canada’ three years in a row.  Memphis Blues also boasts one of the most extensive Bourbon selections in the city!

The boys have also released a best-selling cookbook, Memphis Blues Barbeque House – Bringin’ Southern BBQ Home (Whitecap Books, 2008), and have just released a series of unique Memphis Blues Rubs and Sauces. A sixth store is set to open in downtown Vancouver in 2012, and further expansion is planned for Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba in the coming months.  Memphis Blues has also extensively grown their catering division, and are a sought-after partner for weddings, corporate events, and more.  Now let’s eat!
