Casual Dining

Abe's BBQ

Abraham Davis founded his first business in 1924 named Bungalow-Inn, located on Fourth Street; now called Martin Luther King Boulevard, where his excellent Bar-B-Q reputation spread across North Mississippi and Mid-South. The business moved to the crossroads of U.S. 49 & 61 where legend has it that the Delta blues king, Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil and the blues was born. Itís very possible that Robert Johnson, while sitting on a Coca-Cola case under one of the sycamore trees that was prominent at that corner back then, eating an Abeís Bar-B-Q made that legendary deal. It is a fact that Abraham Davis surrendered his soul to eat lunch, and coined the words to Abeís famous sauce, THE COME BACK SAUCE: Once youíve eaten our sandwich, you have to come back for more. In 1960 the business was renamed Abeís Bar-B-Q, horning Abe Davis, its founder.

Kathryn's On Moon Lake

In 1937 Frank and Kathryn Rossi opened a small cafe in their house on the banks of beautiful Moon Lake Mississippi offering authentic Italian cuisine made from the Rossi family recipes that had been handed down for generations. The world famous onion ring and salad recipe used today, are the same recipe the Rossi’s used in 1937. In 2010, local musician John Mohead purchased and reopened this memorable piece of Mississippi history. The building hadn’t changed in 70 years. The same knotty pine paneling, the same uneven floors, the same tiny bathrooms... Eighty years later we think Kathryn and Frank would approve.

Ramon's Steak & Seafood

Hidden and unassuming in a residential area, Ramon's is unfortunately overlooked by most visitors. The local folks all suggest this place for dinner, saying the shrimp is the best around. It fits in with the general theme around Clarksdale...capitalize on the tourists coming to see things "as they were way back when." Great Italian food and seafood. Casual.

Ranchero BBQ

Nelms Mitchell started the Ranchero Restaurant in 1959 in a one room concrete building that catered almost exclusively to a teenage crowd. By 1976, almost 20 years later, it had become the place where the same teenagers brought their families. The Ranch (to which the Ranchero is often referred) just seemed to grow up with those first teenagers. Through the years, The Ranchero has not only earned the reputation for outstanding food and a great place to bring the family, it has also become a picture gallery of sports memorabilia. The Nelms Mitchell family takes great pride in those items brought in by local customers. You are invited to stroll through the restaurant and enjoy the treasures and priceless memorabilia of the Ranch's customers and loyal patrons

Back Yard Burgers

Styles may have changed since that first Back Yard Burgers, but the big, bold back yard taste we serve has not. Today, we only use 100% Black Angus Beef, continuously working with a team of beef experts to study how to raise the best meat, the perfect way to form a patty and how to retain flavor and tenderness. The Back Yard Burgers Mission: To create and cook a burger that’s just as good as the one you’d grill in your back yard — maybe even better.

Hick's Famous Hot Tamales

Eugene Hicks, born in 1944, has been making hot tamales since 1960. Acy Ware, who peddled tamales on the streets of Clarksdale, gave Hicks his recipe. In 1970, Hicks opened his first restaurant. The recipe has changed a bit over the years as he has experimented with different meats and spices. Hicks has never committed a recipe to writing, though. He works alone to cook and spice the meat, keeping the secrets to himself.
