I will be flying into Memphis, staying in Grenada, MS for a night and flying back out from memphis the next day. I am looking for a recommendation on lunch that is on my way between Memphis and Grenada, preferably close to 55, closer to memphis since I land at noon and relatively quick. Also dinner recommendation at/near Grenada. I am figuring I will get dinner at Interstate BBQ at the airport on my way back.

  1. Where are you spending the night. Jake and Rip's is the best place in Grenada. You might eat at Interstate if you head back N.

    Jake and Rips @ at 1525 Sunset Dr., Grenada, MS 662 - 227 - 9955.

        Tops BBQ in Southaven at Exit 291 just off I 55 would be your best best S of Memphis and S of the AP.

        Tops BBQ @ 541 Stateline Road West, Southaven, MS 662 - 393 - 7488.

        If you want to stop a little further S in Hernando at Exit 290 is Memphis St. Cafe just a little W of I 55 downtown Hernando for some good lunch food.

        Memphis St. Cafe @ 2476 Memphis St., Hernando, MS 662 - 429 - 9299.

        Jake and Rips is the place for dinner your one night in Grenada. It's at Exit 206 on Hwy. 8 E of I 55 about a mile and serves good catfish and BBQ. There are several hotels along in that area. There's a Day's Inn and Super 8 and then a Country Inn and Suites W of I 55. I think there's a Holiday Inn Express next to Jake and Rips. That's your best place to stay I think.
