A diner right by the famed crossroads- great food, family run, pretty cheap/reasonably priced. Nice people.

Long-time iconic Clarksdale BBQ spot. Great pulled pork. Ribs are solid, but not my favorite - have more of a ham-like taste than I like. Sides are all solid and they have a full menu of other typical short order dishes - all solid. BBQ...More

One of the best pulled pork sandwiches I've ever had. Abe's is a Clarksdale tradition since 1924. His family still operates the place, and their warmth adds to the pleasant experience.
