The best fried chicken you will ever eat. Quite a few excellent sides on the buffet line as well. Lorman's Old Country Store is a restaurant everyone should visit at least once.

The absolute best fried chicken in the history of the world! Plus, the first time I have ever had cole slaw better than KFC. To top it off, the owner "serenaded" us with a soulful version of "I Can't Help Myself".

Came here while traveling the Trace. I wish I had packed a lunch ahead of time but didn’t. Went to Trip Advisor and picked this place knowing it would be fried chicken and a buffet. Came in and saw the place was busy at 2...More

I would’ve loved to see this place back in it’s heyday. Huge old country store. Food was very good but not incredible. Service was very good. Thought it a little pricey at $15.95 for buffet. Glad I did it but once is enough.

A restaurant in an old junky looking store. Over priced at $15.95 each buffet, corn bread hard, mac and cheese I could not eat, the chicken wasn't anything that special, the service seemed only interested in giving me the bill and not filling my drink...More

Please add this restaurant. I found it when we stayed in Port Gibson, MS. it is about 8 miles out of town. It is on yelp. You can see it here: http://www.yelp.com/biz/old-country-store-lorman-2, it is also on roadfood.com. It is very inexpenisive and the food is very good. Moreover, the owner is a character. He sings to you. The waitresses treat you like relatives. It is truly a wonderful experience.
