Abe’s Bar-B-Q was my first stop when I arrived in Clarksdale, Mississippi for two reasons; it’s right next to the Crossroads AND the comfort food is great.

The Dutch Oven is housed in an old passenger train depot. This Amish bakery is predominantly known for baked goods and sandwiches.
Like the South Florida croqueta phenomenon, the Mississippi Delta has a well-documented fascination with hot tamales.
The goals I had set for my four days in Clarksdale, Mississippi, were to stay at the Shack Up Inn, visit the Delta Blues Museum, see the Crossroads and eat from Ground Zero Blues Club.
This lucky fella over here accomplished all of them and more.
