The Dutch Oven in Clarksdale, Mississippi

A Great Lunch at The Dutch Oven in Clarksdale

Arbetters Banner 468 x 60

An old passenger train depot is what the Dutch Oven restaurant calls home. They are an Amish bakery predominantly known for baked goods and sandwiches.

After having many fried meals on my trip around the South, it was nice to enjoy a lunch that had none of that going on. My wife Marcela started with a taco soup and thoroughly enjoyed the daily casserole of Gourmet Chicken & Rice with a macaroni salad.

I couldn’t decide between two sandwiches, so I ordered the pimento cheese and pork BBQ sandwiches, both on freshly baked butterhorn. To be fair, I took one bite of each sandwich and settled on the pimento cheese as my guy. The pulled pork while good was heavier than I was hoping for this lighter lunch.

The house-made pimento cheese on that buttery butterhorn was a gland slam. I decided halfway through the sandwich that I was going to stop and keep some to enjoy on the back porch at the shack we were stayin’ in later in the day.

“You shouldn’t leave without having a slice of pie,” so of course, we made sure to oblige.

Marcela and I were sharing, or so I thought. Two bites were the most I was able to manage, and I was lucky even to get that many.

It was absolutely killer, but Marcela might be a better judge due to the limited time I had with it, lol.

My first stop, whenever I return to Clarksdale, will be for another of those pimento cheese sandwiches and the buttery roll it was on. It was so good that we took a bag of mini butterhorns to have for breakfast the next day.

The Dutch Oven is only open from 10 AM till 3 PM on weekdays and closed on weekends, so plan accordingly.
