Mr. D's Old Country Store is a wonderful restaurant offering customers a true "down-home" Southern food experience in a unique setting. Of course, there is no better place to find fried chicken anywhere along Hwy. 61 (or anywhere else for that matter), however, their smorgasbord of classic sides should not be overlooked. They are equally delicious! For those endeavoring to... More

The host is entertaining. The chicken was a little greasy and premises needs to be a little cleaner.

I had my worse lunch experience here! I was getting string beans off the buffet and there was a roach I dipped out on my plate with them. After alerting wait staff, it took 3-5 mins before that batch of string beans was removed off the buffet and I had to warn people getting that item to wait. Mr. D... More

You shouldn't pass this place up. Country home cooking at its best. Be sure to try the fried chicken, okra and tomatoes, cucumber and tomato salad, black eyed peas, and fresh cobbler for dessert. Everything on the extensive buffet is fresh and tastes like it was in the garden that morning.

My family stopped for a late lunch while traveling home from vacation. Mr D greeted us upon arrival as well as his staff. The welcome was warm and inviting. It was about 3:30 in the afternoon when we arrived and Mr D had the cook staff drop fresh chicken for us. The chicken was so moist and crispy. The side... More

After seeing Alton Brown's Feasting on Asphalt about this place several years ago and reading many of the more recent reviews we decided to add a detour by 2 hours to a road trip weekend. For those of you used to Interstate convenience...this isn't it! You drive from Natchez, if coming from the south and go about 20 miles on... More

We arrived at the Old Country Store near closing time and I think they had been very busy that day. But they welcomed us in like we were family. Great fried chicken and country vegetables. Cool building full of lots of history. The owner walked us out, made sure we had directions, gave us his number if we got lost... More

On our drive North, we stopped outside of Natchez in a town called Lorman, MS which falls between Fayette and Port Gibson, Mississippi. You would never know to stop here unless you bumped into a few locals who told you where to have a Mississippi style home cooked meal! It was so filling I wanted to sleep afterwards! There were...

You can read a lot of reviews about the chicken at The Old Country Store. The chicken is, without a doubt, outstanding. But the real “Secret Recipe” at this place is something that nourishes the soul, while your body also finds plenty of good southern victuals. (Or “Vittles” as Uncle Jed would say.) There are many great things in life... More
