Customers rave about the quality of food, real southern style bbq and soul food. Place is usually full to whatever capacity is allowed, and once things can return to a new abnormal, they book great blues bands from the area, and are wanting to expand to include other genres. I pick up this place using third party delivery DoorDash, a ... read more

Neil St. Blues has some of the best food in town, hands down. Literally everything on their menu is on-point. Their catfish is unmatched in Champaign/Urbana. I recently ordered some food from them through DoorDash (the pick 3 meal with catfish, chicken, shrimp, and 2 sides, which were collard greens with turkey and red beans and rice ... read more

James Cole via - Sep 19, 2020
The food was excellent and staff was very nice. I had alligator po'boy. The shrimp po'boy had a nice kick. Banana pudding was best I have ever had. Philly steak egg rolls were really good and we had another appetizer that was very good as well. Honestly it is hard to pick the menu in general sounds great.

Neil St. Blues is one of the best all around places to eat in Central Illinois. Their menu contains some staple options, as well as plant-based substitutes. Neil St. Blues also has a full bar with a great drink menu. This black owned business is just a block from the Hyatt in downtown Urbana.
Michael Raices via - Aug 27, 2020
Best place to get catfish and soul food sides! Catfish is crispy and perfectly seasoned. Mac n cheese has just enough salt and pepper. Greens are real and not from a can! And the cornbread is soft. Overall great place to eat!
Jazzmin Byler via - Aug 27, 2020
This place is AMAZING! The food was cooked to ๐Ÿ‘Œ and seasoned very well! The customer service was great. Friendly staff.

Frog legs are delish. Drinks are delish. Food is full of flavor & youโ€™ll definitely need a box to take your food home. Jul was our server & heโ€™s the BEST. Weโ€™ll be back.
Lena Becerra via - Aug 21, 2020
Me and my partner had mixed reviews on our takeout order. I got the Blues Burger which was super delicious! My partner got the yardbird and the two of us werenโ€™t very big fans.
Danny Clark via - Aug 17, 2020
Absolutely love the food, ambiance, and service. The owners are great people who really care about bringing amazing soul food to Champaign. Canโ€™t wait to see how this restaurant grows!!
Ashley via - Aug 17, 2020
Honestly one of the best places to eat in Champaign. Absolute banger. Ordered a vegan burger and it was top notch. Owner was busy at the bar but still stopped by our table to talk to us. I'd love to come again to see the live music.

Great service. They are doing a great job complying with covid regulations. Fried chicken was amazing, shrimp and grits needed a touch of salt but that is what hot sauce is for! Overall highly recommend supporting this great local business. Looking forward to when they can have live music.

DELICIOUS! We ordered off of GrubHub, got catfish, which came with mac and cheese and candied yams, a vegan oyster mushroom po boy sandwich, and extra fries.
