Re:New Orleans to Memphis via Birmingham
You will pass through Meridian but there is really not anything there now since Weidman's closed. But, about 30 miles east of Meridian, near Butler, AL is Ezell's Fish Camp. Excellent Fried Catfish in a neat old fish camp house that sits right on top of the Tombigbee Waterway. Lot's of history, food is great. There is also one in Birmingham but I've never eaten there and can't recommend.
