I Love Memphis On The Road: Mississippi Delta Tour Recap Posted by Holly Whitfield | April 24th 2015 9326 2 [View the story “I Love Memphis Mississippi Delta Tour Recap” on Storify] Share this Post Email This Post Author: Holly Whitfield I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

You hit some great spots on yours and there are many, many more. All it takes is a little time for so much culture and history. Reply Holly Whitfield says: April 24, 2015 at 11:08 am Thanks Mark! I’ll go into a bit more detail in the coming weeks. Reply James says: April 25, 2015 at 8:07 am If you missed Crave Bistro and Delta Fast Food this time around, I would highly recommend them the next time you are in Cleveland. Crave has a selection of homemade muffins and cupcakes everyday, which are really good. Like most cupcake shops, they pile on the icing and tend to be a little sweet for me. But, if they have it, try the Banna Pudding cupcake. That one is exceptional. They also have a nice lunch menu. The Reuben with Pasta salad is excellent. My go-to lunch when working at a plant nearby. As for Delta Fast Food, it showed up on a Food Network show one day, so I tried it out. The tamales are good, but the Rib Tips make a great inexpensive meal at a very reasonable price. On the way home, the Shady Nook Convenience Store on 61 right outside Clarksdale has some VERY good tamales. They have a nice spicy kick to them, and again, the price is hard to beat.
