I'm pretty sure they were invented in Robinsonville, Mississippi, at the Hollywood Cafe (featured in the Marc Cohn song, "Walking in Memphis"). At least that's what they used to claim at the Hollywood Cafe!

The first time I had them was at a 'cajun' restaurant in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas (near where Bishop Arts cafe is now). They were incredible and they served them with a raspberry dipping sauce (similiar to F&W Raspberry Chipotle Sauce).

My husband just came back from Nashville and had fried pickle chips at a local eatery. He and his buddies couldn't believe how great they were. I had them about 12 years ago at a Corn Dog stand in a mall in Plattsburgh, NY. Plattsburgh is about 20 miles south of Canada(brrrrhhh!) and we loved them. Can't find them any more, so I'm going to try making them myself. They're awesome for satisfying a PMS salt attack!

I just got the September 2004 issue of "GRIT" today, and it has a recipe for deep fried dill pickles on page 37.

Talk about a blast from the past! "GRIT" is now a monthly that costs $4.95 an issue - I used to sell it 50 years ago when it was a weekly and cost 10¢ an issue.

I had them a year ago when a friend who spent a lot of time in Texas made them. I thought he was nuts! Since then he moved to N. Carolina.
I've been waiting to find another place to get them. They were fantastic!

There is a "seafood" buffet place in Anniston, Alabama called "Top of the River", lots of catfish. Actually it's not a bad place. When I did work at Fort McClellan in the late ninties it was one of the best places to go. This was where I had my fist fried pickles and I must say that I have a hankering for them to this day. Living now in Annapolis I have not seen them on any menu. By the way Anniston has a great Roadfood-style place called Dad's Barbeque. You sit in booths and telephone your order to the kitchen. Again, not a bad place.

Peace to all,

BB

Could you post the recipe? I think I'm taking your hubby's opinion at this time but love dill pickles and am willing to give it a try...I THINK! Can you use Claussen? They are the family fav but then again I might not possibly want to ruin a good thing and had better use another brand.

I live in virginia, and I get my fried pickle fix from a little place in Madison Virginia called the Pig and Steak. I wish I knew of someplace closer in Northern Virginia that made them. Anyone have any suggestions?

Ghoulardi's, a local bar in my hometown of Lorain, Ohio, serves deep fried pickle spears as well as deep fried olives stuffed with cheese. So if there's a "fried pickle line", it must be pretty far north since Lorain is on Lake Erie.

www.ghoulardis.com (Ghoulardi was a local celebrity who hosted the late late movie on some UHF station in Cleveland... just made myself feel old because now everyone has cable or a dish and doesn't have to endlessly twist the dial to tune in a UHF station just right)

Sauceman mentioned Hal and Mal's in Jackson. I was there last night to speak to a voter registration rally, but I did not get any fried pickles.


I wanted to say, though, that Dixon's on Northside Drive has GREAT pickles. I used to live with a former executive chef for Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, and he had to go to Dixon's about every other day!

(His uncle used to own A Lil Taste of New Orleans in Jackson.)

The fried dill pickle line is drawn neatly around my plate. Although, I've lived in the south for a billion years, I can't seem to get my tastebuds around these little things...

Tack that on to my not liking grits, or rice, and I'll be kicked out of the south for sure.

I had them at the Blue & White in Tunica and they were awesome, the Hollywood was closed that night. I agree that one's first thought may be unfriendly but they are great nonetheless.

Dear lord, someone else brought up Parasol's. I've had the fried jalapeno slices (along with their cheeseburger poboy) a million times. As much beer as I drink while in NOLA, I can always find the corner of 3rd & Constance.

Pardon the topic jump. Please carry on with the pickles...

I had fried pickles this week at Fat Fish Blue in Cleveland, OH while watching Robert Lockwood's Blues All Stars perform. The pickles were fried in spears, I prefer slices, but they were pretty awesome nonetheless. I highly recommend.

The answer to the question Where is the Fried Dill Pickle Line.Well
it started in 1963 in small Arkansas town called Atkins. A small business man maned Bernell "FATMAN" Austin started them that year in
a small pink drive called the Duchess. His creation was inspired by the Atkins Pickle Plant operating just across the road.The fried dill pickle was at first just a gimmick item but once it was placed on the menu its
popularity was tremedous.The Fatman died in September of 1999 but his special recipe lives on in at the Old South Restaurant in Russellville, Arkansas being carried on by his oldest son, James Bernell. Also there has been many articles written about this subject in paper and the internet.Anything southern does give the Fatman credit with its creation.
And I know this story well because you see I am his youngest son and know that no matter where you try a FRIED Dill Pickle it is intreging
to think a person would really do this to a pickle..Thanks

One in particular that I can think of, Toots (on the NE side of town), really promotes them both on their menu and occasionaly in their advertising. I think they go so far as to call them 'famous'.


Hey, TJ,

can you name any other places in Cincy that serve them? And, whereabouts might "Toots" be?

I migrated north a few years back and for a dinner party one night I did the Southern fried stuff. I battered and fried some pickles, okra, green tomatoes, and zucchini. Now when I have a group over for dinner, they always ask for the fried pickles.

I've had them once here at a bar -- they were awful. Bad coating and they used dill spears, which I didn't care for. I've always had dill chips down South and that's what I use when I make them.

Before my husband and I went on our trip to see our son in Austin, TX, I had only heard about Fried Pickles, however I never tasted one. Well, I tried them twice and am hooked. The first time was in Cedar Park, TX at a little place called Railyard Grill. Besides great fried pickles, they have wonderful hamburgers and chicken fried steak. I also had the pickles at Alamo Drafthouse. The pickles must have been cooked longer than at Railyard, and were okay. Does anyone know if there are any places in New York State that makes them?

My french fried dill pickle experience was well north of your line. My one and only encounter was at a dive bar called the Hi-Lo in Kalamazoo, MI in the early 1980's. They were batter dipped kosher dill spears and went great with a pitcher of cheap draft beer. I grew up in Atlanta, GA and had never seen them down south or anywhere else since my Kalamazoo college days for that matter.

Just so everyone knows that the fried pickle line is fuzzy. Way up here in West Michigan is where I found my first fried pickles. A little whole in the wall bar and grill. People said try them you have to. I have loved them ever since. I have yet to find a better fried pickle and I have tried them everytime I found them all the way from here to Florida.

I had them in a BBQ place in Indiatlantic/Melbourne, Fl. Charlie & Jakes.... I think I would prefer a bread and butter pickle though. However that raspberry chipotle dipping sauce sounds good.

Glad to see this thread revived! But man are yall makin me hungry for some of those fried delights! Hey, the line goes west all the way to Texas! My youngest bro brought me my 1st taste from somewhere in Fort Worth, Tx. I was hooked! They were dills w/ ranch dip sauce. But, the BnB's w/ whatever sounds good also.

I found this whole place and this topic because I was looking for a recipe to make them myself at home because I have been dying for a good fried pickle. I like the spears better than the whole ones but the pickle chips, hmmmm. I think if they are the pickle chips, they have to be hand sliced and good sized. Something to really bite into rather than pop into my mouth.

Don't know where they came from but I've eaten these since the early 70's. Battered in a cornmeal batter, deep fried until light brown, served with my grandmothers homemade hot mustard. I think they were served at every dinner on the grounds all over Alabama that I've ever been to.

DaveM tell me more about "Fowl Balls", (chunks of chicken wrapped in bacon and then smoked).

How big were they? Did they use an entire strip of bacon or half. I'd like to try this, in my concession trailer.I tried the frozen pickles I read about here at The Conerstone Festival last week with very moderate sucess. We only sold 28. But the people that ordered them and came back later said they enjoyed them. At the same time we sold out of everything else every day. Gosh what a logistical nightmare, 20,000 people camped on site in the middle of no-where and both of my main suppliers 180 miles away.

My wife and I were at an Italian-American festival last weekend in Canton, Ohio, and there was a booth that was selling fried dill pickles. They used the spears, and served them with Ranch dressing. It was the first time either of us has ever had them. They were not bad, but we weren't crazy about them. They tasted a little like zucchini, but that could have been due to the fact that they were frying zucchini in the same oil.
