Being from Texas, I have long enjoyed our "association" with the Old South. As a member of the Confederacy during the War of Northern Aggression, Texas has old ties to the South. Even more so, nowadays with economic and political ties. I forgot culinary ties, which also apply. Anyway, this is all about MISSISSIPPI hospitality!
We attended the Texas A&M v. Ole' Miss game on Oct. 12 and stayed in Como, MS at the Como Inn. Como is a tiny community with a big heart and a lot going for it. Just next door to the Inn is the justifiably famous Como Steakhouse where we dined and had a great time.
Como is only a 35 to 45 min, drive to Oxford, depending on the traffic and we felt very comfortable with the location throughout our trip. We liked everything about the Como Inn plus the food was good. There is (for us at least) a new trend developing in the B&B Industry which involves serve-yourself breakfast items and treats throughout the day. This seems to make sense as guests are no longer tied to the serving hours of their hosts and the owner/host can prepare the food without having to serve or entertain the guest.
In our case, we saw the owners often and had no impression we were being ignored. Delightful experience all the way around. Did I mention parking is free and available right in front of the Inn?
