We were lucky to stop in Meridian, MS on Sunday, May 4, 2014. By chance, we left I-20 and found Weidmann's downtown. We arrived at 11:45 am before the rush. There is plenty of room to dine on the upstairs porch and inside too. It is not a fast food joint, there are cloth knapkins, but there is no dress code because people wore suits and dresses and shorts with T-shirts. A bridesmaid group was at a nearby table and children were at other tables in the room, but it was not loud. My wife and I tried the "special".... shrimp and grits, and we were quite pleased. The fried grits have cheese and bacon (YES!) and the shrimp are in a cream sauce poured on top. It was more than we could eat, but delicious. Service was excellent along with the food. Now that we know where it is, we will return when we pass through Meridian. Every town needs a restaurant like Weidmann's.
