A Must-Visit

My husband and I stopped in on a late Saturday afternoon. It wasn't busy. We ordered the tamales and a few drinks. The tamales were awesome! Loved the atmosphere!

We ate lunch here and enjoyed it. The building itself is fun and funky. We weren't there when they had a band so I can't comment. I enjoyed the Homewrecker chicken sandwich and my friend said the fried chicken, green beans and turnip greens were good. Service was good.

Howl-N-Madd Cheesesteak Sammich and PO Mann Sammich with turnip greens and fried green tomatoes! All were very good. The atmosphere was very interesting. A must stop before stopping at intersection of 61 & 49 to sell your soul to the devil.

Good food and awesome music. The atmosphere was great and it looks as if the restaurant has been there forever (it was opened in 2001). The beer selection was not very good, but with good music, who cares?

We were in Clarksdale long enough for two visits to Ground Zero. You experience kind of depends on the live music. We caught a white band that covered rock songs and tried to infuse blues into the music. They were competent but didn't do much to move the crowd. Next time was a great blues performance by a local musician... More

We had the chance of having 5 bands playing that evening. Great blues with local singers and from Nashville to help out the fundraising to Ground Zero Festival that will be held next August, a must see to music lovers. The Festival is completely FREE, something very rare in today's society. I heartily recommend.

Band was playing when we arrived and they were great! Ordered a cocktail and a soft drink but never received them. Listened to the band for about 30 minutes and then were told to pay cover charge if wanted to stay. Were not happy we could not get our drinks so we left.
