This was the best fried chicken I've ever had. I will admit that I seldom, if ever, eat fried chicken because it's usually dry and generally not good enough to waste my splurges. I met my match!! I started with one piece and a tasting of a couple of sides...but once I tasted it, oh my! Fried chicken, 3 pieces,... More

This chicken is unbelievable! The place does not look like anything from the outside, but step in and you're transported back in time. A combo tagsale/general store/and restaurant, the Old Country Store reminds me of a time when family recipes were gaurded under lock and key, given only to the favorite child. This fried chicken all you caneat buffet totes... More

Stopped in for a late lunch while riding motorcycles through the Natchez Trace. I was worried about the place being packed but it was pretty empty. The fried chicken was some of the best fried chicken I have ever eaten! All of the normal country cooking sides were good also. Mr. D did sing to my wife when we got... More

Just like most places...I've gone when it's been great and then I've been when it's been bad. It's not as good as it was when I was younger but still has good fried chicken. Luck of the draw on which day you get the best food. I still go hoping each time I get great food ☺

Located on Highway 61, The Old Country Store is a family-friendly dining venue in the heart of Lorman, Mississippi. Just a short drive away from VICKSBURG , this restaurant is housed in an old 19th-century building and has delicious Fried Chicken. The food is served in two rows of long buffet tables, with one holding cold dishes and the second... More

The Old Country Store is a unique experience. The store itself is very old with interesting antiquities around the building. Don't expect anything fancy ... it's an old store with amazing down-home Southern cooking. The fried chicken is better than any fried chicken I've ever tasted! They also provide a variety of side dishes and salads, all seasoned to perfection.... More

Just a few miles from Windsor ruins. Fried chicken is to die for. Mr D sings to you too. We bought a ticket shirt but passed on the junktiques which were a little high.

Second visit, second review. Every bit as good as the first. It's all good here. Mr. D has his same recipe and same excellence. He has not skipped a beat in the intervening years. It's priced like an upscale buffet, but worth every penny. It is hot in there during the summer. It is an old building with more character... More

This was my second visit to the fantastic spot. Seven years ago we visited Old Country Store based on the Food Network series Feasting on Asphalt and it was amazing. At first I thought the fried chicken was as good as my Mom's but then (sorry Momma) realized it was even better. I returned yesterday to celebrated my godson's birthday... More

We have visited The Old Country Store a few times in the last several decades and always had a great experience, but somehow never made it back again. On a search for some Old School Great Fried Chicken like we had when we were younger, my Wife suggested that we make the 1 1/2 hour drive to Lorman. Weather was... More

Please add this restaurant. I found it when we stayed in Port Gibson, MS. it is about 8 miles out of town. It is on yelp. You can see it here: http://www.yelp.com/biz/old-country-store-lorman-2, it is also on roadfood.com. It is very inexpenisive and the food is very good. Moreover, the owner is a character. He sings to you. The waitresses treat you like relatives. It is truly a wonderful experience.
