    The obvious place is Abe's in Clarksdale, which has terrific 'que.

    The tamales at Hick's in Clarksdale also get a big thumbs up.  I spent a week or so in Mississippi in December and you can find my trip report here, which may give you some good ideas.

    mugarbear-
    When are you going on your trip?  A group of us Roadfooders will down that way next weekend.

    One blues club, Ground Zero is listed here on Roadfood.  It is partially owned by Morgan Freeman.

    MUGARBEAR,

Jan and I will stay friday night  in Clarksdale and plan to do a Blues evening after our dinner in Greenville.

    While you'll have a great time at Ground Zero, for a more "rustic" but just as safe time, I'd strongly suggest you check out Red's @395 Sunflower Ave  & MLK. You'll be very glad you did. If Red is cooking BBQ, which he does some weekends , you'll find it the best Q in town and that's not to be taken as a knock on Abe's or Hicks 2 fine places both. The roof leaks and the bathroom floor has a horrible pitch but this is the place a blues lover wants to hear blues in.
