Kelly’s in Helena

January 1, 2019

If you want a great sandwich or breakfast, stop by Kelly’s restaurant in Helena. Better than fast food places, sandwiches are prepared when you order them. Although not a fancy place, Kelly’s is a welcoming and comfortable one. I had a cheeseburger and fries. Kelly’s is open early for breakfast and serves a variety of… Read More ›

Airport Grocery, Cleveland Mississippi

This is one of those classic Mississippi eateries that will keep you coming back whenever you are around Cleveland. To show you my age, I remember when it was a grocery store down by the airport. When I went to Delta State, my friends and I would go by there and get hoop cheese and… Read More ›

Cup of Grace

I had to come to Tunica today and was looking for a place to eat lunch. Wasn’t in the mood for a real big meal so I decided to stop by Cup of Grace. Since it was cold, I thought about a bowl of soup. Nothing like a warm bowl of soup, but the waitress… Read More ›

Ground Zero Blues

I stopped by and tried Ground Zero Blues in Clarksdale,Mississippi for lunch today.  Ground Zero is set up to be like a juke house and they do have live blues concerts there on the weekends.  It is a very unique place to eat and there seem to be signatures everywhere you look from the seat… Read More ›
