Blue and White seemed to me to always be gasoline stations, but this one is in a building that reminds you of the days of Blue and White stations, but here you fill up on food, not fuel.

This restaurant was established in 1924, yes 1924, and moved to this location in 1937 by the Pure Oil Company gas pumps and all. It served as a gas station, restaurant, bus station, newstand and tobacco shop. Some of the current employees, it is noted, have been working there for over 40 years.

For lunch I chose a patty melt that seemed to ... (yes, that is right) ... it seemed to melt in my mouth. Since we are from the north this seemed the perfect place to add some fried okra to the meal. I was right, and it was fried just the way I like it. My wife chose the fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, and fried green tomatoes. It was all good, and I took advantage of my folk and being close enough to reach her plate.

The complete meal including drinks was $28.48. We left filled and pleased that we had taken the opportunity to stop at the Blue and White.

Many folks have the opportunity to eat here daily and they do, but some of us have to travel the Delta to get to the Blue and White and we can do that, as well. If you arrive for lunch on Friday, expect fish and salmon patties, but don't miss the fried chicken. The vegatables are always cooked like home. Some of our group order the bread pudding in a take out casserole. They love it that much. The atmosphere is down home, friendly and very accomodating. Hope you enjoy!

The food, atmosphere, and staff are authentic. Everything is made from scratch, and the result is the kind of southern cooking that most people only read about.

We had a large group that arrived later in the evening. The place was packed and it took a bit of time for all of us to get our food, but when it did come, it was hot and delicious. The poor owner was so worried we would be upset, but he kept us informed of what was going on and let us know in a nice way that quality comes first. It definitely shows.

This is a destination restaurant if in Memphis. It's only @ 45 minutes away and should not be missed if your ever within 2 hours of Tunica.

we always make it a point to head to the blue and white whenever we are anywhere close to tunica, ms. yesterday we were there in the middle of the afternoon and we had the buffet. the fried green tomato's were all gone and the chef came out and asked if we would like some but of course i said yes and out came a big plate of them.. everything was great but i have to admit it has to be the best fried chicken ever. i loved all the veggies just the perfect seasoning and they topped it off with huge slice of peach cobbler. mmmmmmmmmmmmm making me hungry just thinking about it. the service is great and the food is awesome. there are casino's all around here but the blue and white is where i like to eat. so if you are headed anywhere near tunica on hwy 61 you need to stop and give this place a try.
