About Us

We've built a reputation with each new restaurant for the best comfort food in town, with hospitality that makes you feel like you're going home with each visit, and at prices that keep our customers coming back for more!

-Ralph Capobianco - Founder, Trailblazer and Always in Our Hearts
Remember those car trips you took with your family?  While it was no fun to be trapped in the back of a station wagon with your little brother – it was fun eating at those great roadside restaurants.

Country fried steak and mashed potatoes; sloppy, fall off the bone ribs; juicy burgers;  chili, cornbread and sweet tea -  This was pure comfort food and made the car ride worthwhile.
King Street Blues is based on those great memories – We use only the freshest ingredients, make EVERYTHING from scratch, and serve it up with a friendly smile that will make you wish dad still had that Buick station wagon with the wood paneling…

But alas, we all grow up, and King Street Blues has too. Check out our updated menu with our Good and Good For Ya section, Gluten Free entrees, fresh fish and creative salads.  (Don’t worry, we left the ribs, country fried steak and mashed potatoes alone)

Each of our locations (Old Town Alexandria and Crystal City) have built a reputation for being the kind of place to take your friends, your kids, your grandmom, your co-workers, even a first date – We are super friendly, and treat everyone like family.

So “Get in here!”  and experience “Comfort Food with a Southern Accent” – the King Street Blues way.

And Hey-
What’s with all the paper mache characters?  It’s a nod to the colorful fun souvenirs you collected on those car trips, and we think they look better than the spoons with the states on them.
