        There are two about 20 miles apart. Click on the Road Food link and see for yourself.

        Phillips Grocery @ 2406 South Lamar Blvd., Oxford, MS 662 - 236 - 5951.

        Phillip's Grocery @ 541A East Van Dorn Ave., Holly Springs, MS 601 - 252 - 4671.

        1. re: Littleman

          A recent discussion on has revealed that the Phillips Grocery in Oxford is vastly inferior to the one in Holly Springs. I have no personal experience in the matter.

          In Jackson, Spice Avenue's Indian cuisine is not to be missed as are the tacos at La Guadalupe. And when it comes to higher end food, Walker's is a safe bet.

          Phillips Grocery

          Spice Avenue
          4711 I 55 N, Jackson, MS 39206

      2. There's a place in Huntsville, Al. that has hot tamales made by a little old man in the delta.
        They're fantastic.


        1. I would add fried Catfish from port-au-rince in homer, la. And pizza from Johnny's in Louisiana.
