Lumpkin's BBQ in Jackson is a do not miss place for lunch- wonderful! There is the Big Apple Inn on Farish Street for hot tamales (also in Jackson)- guaranteed to be some of the best that you have ever had.
For fried chicken on the Trace there is Old Country Store in Lorman- my favorite fried yard bird, and with any luck you will get free entertainment!
In Natchez there is a BBQ place- (I can't think of the name, but it is on the south side of the street that goes over the MS river bridge) that does deep fried hot tamales- a lot better than they sound!
