Going on a road Trip through thr South

Hey everybody, I'm going on a road trip and I need advie on where to eat on the way. I'm starting off going through Little Rock around Lunch time, then going to Memphis for a day, down through Jackson,Vicksburg and stayin the night in Natchez. Next we head to New Orleans but I went to school there for a couple of years so I already have where I want to eat there planned out. Then going up to Baton Rouge for a day then I finish off in Austin, TX where I will be for three days and a subsequent 2 years so I could use as many Austin recomendations as possible. Thanks a lot! Everyone have a Happy 4th of July!

  1. Prejeans in Lafayette, LA is a great place. Highly recommend it and best of all it is just off of I-10. Different from New Orleans, which is more creole. This is a cajun joint. Nice place with a family atmosphere. Can't beat the food.

      Yeah I've actually been there it is REALLY good!

    2. If you like BBQ, Whole Hog Cafe in Little Rock is hard to beat anywhere in this country.

      1. Two of my favorite places for lunch in Jackson are Broadstreet Bakery (great sandwiches, salads, breads, desserts) and Scrooges (meat and veggies).

        1. If your schedule allows for a meal between Little Rock and Memphis - exit 202 on I-40 - is Biscoe, which is two miles south of the interstate. Take a left in Biscoe and go two mile east on the US highway. Just before the Cache River is a gravel road to the right (south) and about 300 yards down it is excellent fried catfish. They are open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday only - for both lunch and dinner. You dine on a covered pier on the river with views of the river on three sides. Very casual, very inexpensive, very good.

          1. When in Memphis you need to go to the Rendezvous. It's a Memphis icon and my wife's favourite place. She took me there first on my first trip to Memphis.
            Corky's is good as well.
