Hello all, we took a road trip through Mississippi last week, hitting up 4 cities: Tupelo, Tunica, Clarksdale and Greenville.
Sorry for all the pictures of half eaten food, we are just learning to take pics first and then eat!!
We landed in Tupleo around lunch time and decided to travel up to Holly Springs to have cheeseburgers at Philips Grocery Store. Didn't realize it was 45 miles one way from Tupelo!! Had a little trouble finding it but we did and had some delicious
burgers! Didn't get back into Tueplo until 4:30 and went looking for Shipley's Do-Nuts for our breakfast in the morning. We got there around 5pm and although the selection was limited at that hour, we were able to get a nice variety and they still had some chocolate covered cake doughnuts and fritters. I would recommend stopping at Shipley's for Do-Nuts in Tueplo. We stopped at Connie's Fried Chicken for dinner and it was average.

Next stop was Tunica for 2 days; staying at Sams Town Casino. The food in the casinos (we had the breakfast and dinner buffet at Sams Town) are nothing to write about, however, we did stop at the Blue and White in Tunica for a really good breakfast.

Moving down Rt 61 to our next stop in Clarksdale to see Ground Zero Blues Club. We saw the blues club and not much was happening at 10:30am, so we went in search of lunch. A couple of blocks away was a little place called the Dutch Oven Bakery and Cafe, which interested us as it sounded Amish. They weren't Amish but Mennonite which ment good food to us. For lunch, husband had the Lasagna special (which was more like johnny marzetti) with garlic bread and corn and I had the traditional panini with ham, provoline cheese, red bell peppers and pesto with a side of macaroni salad. This was a great lunch, but dessert was even better. We shared a slice of fresh strawberry pie; my husband said "this is how a strawberry pie is supposed to taste!" They were making pies and cakes and when we left people were lining up for lunch and one guy left with 3 cakes! clarksdaledutchoven.com

Next stop was Greenville for dinner at Does Eat Place. I had the 10oz filet and Ric had the 2lb bone-in ribeye, these were amazing and delicious steaks and the french fries were just like my Mom's. I was tempted to get a second order. Definately call for a reservation if you have dinner here.
