Clarksdale at Thanksgiving

Hi there

My partner and I will be in Clarksdale over Thanksgiving, I've seen the classic 'Dominos is the only thing open on thanksgiving' post (and it is good to know the pizza is good!) but I was just wondering if anyone has any advice, nuggets of wisdom, etc on how/where to get food, what to do!

We won't be driving, anyone know if there are likely to be taxi firms that operate on thanksgiving?

Thanks for any help!

Lyns

How do you plan to get to Clarksdale?

Not a lot in way of transportation in that area.

If there is a Cracker Barrel nearby they are open on Thanksgiving.

I know there is a Cracker Barrel in Batesville, MS which is near Clarksdale.

I would look at the top restaurants here on TA and then send them an email or call once you get to the US.

Abe's BBQ is good.

Thank you so much for that :)

As I'm coming from Ireland, and the only public holiday I have to compare thanksgiving to is Christmas Day, do taxi firms tend to run on thanksgiving?

Yes. But this is a small MS town and have only driven thru and stopped a couple of times. We usually stay over near the Ole Miss campus in Oxford, MS. And it is also small but a college town and it has only one or two taxi services.
