I am going to Tunica over the 4th of July weekend (yeah)! What are your views of the Blue & White Restaurant and the Catfish Warehouse? I plan on eating at both.

    All I had was the biscuits and gravy at Blue and White, so I wouldn't be the best judge, but I didn't find what I had to be anything special.

      We ate at the Blue and White Restaurant for breakfast and we liked it, below is a previous post we did:

        I like Blue & White.  One piece of advice is you are probably better off ordering from the menu instead of the buffet.  You may want to check out this old trip report.

          Personally I have been there several times.  If you catch the buffet at the right time, It is very good but be aware if you don't  it ain't good.  I think BB's advice is very good and order off the menu.  The lady that does the cooking has been there for many years but she cannot control the buffet.  One time I was there it was super and the next time, not so good.

            If you ask, you can have fried chicken with some fantastic onion rings for breakfast. The Blue and White's fried chicken is my personal gold standard.

              The Blue and White is fine. You can get a good meal. Nothing special. Much better food in Memphis, Oxford, Greenwood, etc.

                Spend some time in the Delta if you have time.  Here's a link to visiting there.  You will find some good country food and good BBQ in Clarksdale.  Have breakfast at Blue and White in Tunica and get to Clarksdale around 10AM. Blue and White is on the right as you go through Tunica. It's Blue and White and used to be a service station. Clarksdale is about 50 miles from the casinos. When you reach Clarksdale you will be on U. S. 61 which bypasses the city. Take a right just N of Clarksdale to downtown and you will be on N. State St. You will pass a big cotton gin on your right then you will see The Ranchero on your right. Abe's will be on your left just up the road. Past Abe's you will come to Sunflower which is just before the Sunflower River Bridge. Turn right and go N on Sunflower to the railroad tracks. Go back to your right just past the RR tracks and you will find Ground Zero and The Blues Museum. Madidi's is a few blocks to your N. Hick's is on N. State St. so go back S on Sunflower to N. State St. and go to the right cross the bridge and Hick's is on your right. President Clinton had lunch with Eugene before he left office but Hick's was in an old location back near the RR tracks. Ask for Eugene and ask him to show you his President Clinton photo's. He loves to show them.

                Abe's BBQ @ 616 State St., Clarksdale, MS 662 - 624 - 9947.
                Ground Zero Blues Club @ Blues Alley, Clarksdale, MS 662 - 621 - 9009.
                The Ranchero @ 1907 State St., Clarksdale, MS 662 - 624 - 9768.
                Delta Blues Museum @ 1 Blues Alley Lane, Clarksdale, MS 662 - 627 - 6820.
                Hick's BBQ @ 305 South State St., Clarksdale, MS 662 - 624 - 9887.

                VISIT THE DELTA......

                  Littleman, like usual, has excellent advice. I hope to have a meal with him next time I am in Mississippi. If you go to Ground Zero you may see one of it's owners there. he has been there every time I have been there. Morgan Freeman.  The Blues Museum has a new exhibit on teh great Delta blues singer Son House. Enjoy Mississippi.

                    Thanks Smoke Stack.  You have an invitation to dining in the Delta anytime you wish.  I wish the OP would consider a trip to Oxford, MS to visit William Faulkner's Home and the Ole Miss campus.  There's some great dining there. You can get there from Clarksdale.  Head N on State St. to Highway 278/6 E to Batesville/Oxford. It's about 60 miles to Oxford. You should be there around 3PM. When you get to Oxford you will come to a red light and Jackson Ave. going to the left. Go straight ahead and get off at the first Exit which is Coliseum Dr. Get off on right but turn back left and cross the highway. Take your first right by the Basketball Practice Facility on Hill Drive.  You will see the football stadium straight ahead. Go to dead end at All American Dr. turn right and go past N end of stadium. You will run into the Grove. Go to the left on University Ave. and you will go past the Grove on your right and run into the Circle. Go around the circle and you will see The Lyseum which is the oldest building on campus. The James Meredith riot started in the Circle. There's a monument of him behind the Lyseum. The street you came in on at The Grove is University Ave. Take it back E all the way to Lamar. Take a right on Lamar and go about 6 blocks and take a right on Old Taylor. Go about 3 blocks and you run dead into Faulkner's home. You can drive up the gravel road in front and park and go in and visit. Go back to Lamar and go N past University Ave. two blocks and park. You are now on The Square. The building on your left is Square Books which is very famous. John Grisham has a home in Oxford. You passed it on the right just before you got to town. It sits off to the right on a hill and it's easy to see. It's just before the car dealership before you get to the first red light. He's a frequent visitor to Oxford.

                    Park and walk around the Square. City Grocery is two doors down W of Square Books. Neilson's to your right on the Square is a nice department store. If you walk past City Grocery on the left you will see Waltz Restaurant after you pass the Pizza joint. Going around the Square you will find Ajax which is a good country food joint. There are a couple of nice ladie's shops on that side of the Square. Downtown Grill is on N side of Square. They have a nice bar upstairs. There's a Rebel junk store around on the N side if you want to buy a Rebel souvenir to take home. Go N on Lamar and Lenora's is on the left. Have dinner at City Grocery. CG has a nice bar upstairs and you can sit outside if you like. Tell Jim Weems the manager with a beard that Henry McCaslin said hello. He will take good care of you. If Jim is not there then a cute young lady named Lauren will take care of you. I hope you have a great trip.

                    City Grocery @ 152 Courthouse Square, Oxford, MS. 662 - 232 - 8080.
