Rico, Shackupinn looks fantastic!
Great===thanks folks—looks like the Blue and White is a MUST–we plan on spending some time in Clarksdale too-got a good friend that works there at Ground Zero-and we will be going to what ever show Watermelon Slim does the night after the awards–maybe be in Memphis–will probably stay at the GrandCasino in Tunica–they have a $79 a night rate for attendees–and will need some place to stay in Clarksdale–any recs to there or in Memphis and Tunica for good cheap rooms would be appreciated—and MFL—i will definatly let you know how it all went!!![8D]
Don’t forget that Memphis is only about 30 miles from Tunica.
Just got back from Tunica in Dec. The Sheratin on Friday has a sea food buffet with Maine lobster. Everyone that goes gets a ticket for one lobster, because my husband doesn’t like lobster I has his and there are a lot of people that just like the steamed crab legs, so some else gave me there ticket. A guy at the next table had 8 lobsters. With a players card I think the buffet was around $10-$12.
The Blue & White has the best fried green tomatoes.
Blue and White. Don’t be afraid of their small buffet.
I had a great experience at the Black and White in Tunica(and I saw Little Richard perform at one of the casinos). I loved Abe’s in Clarkdale within view of the legendary crossroads and loved the blues museum in the old train depot there.
I have spent allota time in Tunica. Many of my friends used to work there. I always had a hard time not eating at the Horsheshoe. The snack bar, steak house, and the buffet used to be awsome. Free didn’t hurt matters.
Not sure how it is now. That was back when Jack Binion still owned things.
The Blue & White in Tunica. If they are not too busy, you can order fried chicken and onion rings for breakfast (it won’t nor should be quick, but worth any wait). If pressed for time you could go with eggs, biscuits, grits and country ham w/red eye gravy. Great little luncheon buffet too. Uncle Henry’s in nearby Moon Lake-be prepared to find a place dripping with atmospere http://www.unclehenrysplace.com/ I’m told http://www.kathrynsonmoonlake.com/ has great food but I’ve never sampled it myself. Menu looks great.
Abe’s, Big Jim’s, Hicks, Rest Haven all in Clarksdale. See and visit http://www.cathead.biz/index.html and don’t miss Red’s, the funkiest juke joint you ever had a ball in. Really if you love the blues, don’t miss Red’s. Cathead will have a list of live music venues where you’ll have more fun than any ten casino’s combined. Memphis has been robbed of its blues soul and Beale is no longer worth much time. That city has some outstanding dining choices though. Should be a great trip; fill us in when you return.
Blue and White. Please check the search feature and you will find lotsa info.

This May, it looks like I will be going to the Blues Music Awards–(Handy’s)–in Tunica Ms—anyone got any good spots for eats in the area?
