Do yourself a favor and stay away from Lamar's. They have the worst food and even worse service. I took my family here and we all got sick. The place is nasty and the kitchen needs a visit by the board of health. I would NOT recommend this place to my worst enemy.

My little girl was treated so well. The owner was there and he showed my daughter the talking deer head. So funny. He gave her some mardi gras beads too, which she loves. We just got gyros which were good as well. Keep in mind that this space is in historic district and it is old, but our experience was... More

Best Fried Chicken Ever! A local, family owned business, passed through the generations. Breakfast is great, and the Greek food is good too. You can't beat the fun atmosphere.

The proximity of this restaurant to the Mississippi Museum of Art makes it a natural choice for lunch. And the food - what can I say? The fried trout is delish! Also try the Greek plate - kind of like a disassembled gyro, smothered in a feta dressing. If you are really nice and ask in advance, sometimes they will... More
