The Barbeque was amazing and so was the simple hamburger! Looking for a good ole place in Clarksdale to eat! This is your place! You'll be coming back every time you get a chance to come to town.

We’d heard that if you’re in the Delta, you have to try some tamales. Sounded odd to me, but “When in Rome...” These were the BEST tamales I’d ever had. The atmosphere was great, and the service was friendly. This will definitely be my “go...More
