After exploring Tupelo, stop by Abe's BBQ for a delicious meal.
All of the dishes are prepared fresh, and the meat is smoked in a way that locks in the flavors. Everything from chopped BBQ sandwiches to ribs are served at this family-friendly restaurant. There are also items on the menu for children.
Aside from the BBQ plates, you can order items that include hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken sandwiches. Save room for dessert because everything is made fresh that day, including the famous lemon meringue pie and chocolate pie. Orders are taken promptly, and the customer service is exceptional. There is a dirt parking area in the front with painted boards along the side of the building. This gives way to the simple design of the restaurant so that the focus can be on the food instead of the overall appearance. The cole slaw is a signature recipe made with just the right amount of vinegar. If you enjoy Mexican food, consider the tamales as they are packed with meat and sauce. At times, there is a little too much sauce, but the tenderness of the meat makes up for the additional. There are various heat levels of the sauce available, ranging from mild to extreme for those who enjoy a bit of heat.
Several shopping centers surround Abe's BBQ. There are also a few hotels in the area, making it easy to enjoy a complete vacation while viewing some of the local attractions. The Ground Zero Blues Club is a fun place to go if you like music.
