Champy’s World Famous Fried Chicken is known for their chicken but watch out for their secret weapon, Mississippi Hot Tamales!
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.
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.
As a giant fan of Fat Possum Records, I was ecstatic to visit the End of All Music store and the Lamar Lounge Restaurant in Oxford, Mississippi.
