Clarksdale offers a surprising variety of dining fare, from Southern staples (catfish, BBQ) to the unexpected (healthy salads, tamales), and an equal variety of settings, from funky to fancy. There’s something delicious for every taste and budget. Some caveats: call ahead—the hours at many places depend on whether business is jumping or not. Also, there’s no “no smoking”; if you’re used to eating without cigarette smoke, be sure and ask for whatever “no smoking” seating is available. And this is the South: you’ll just have to enjoy some very tasty but distinctly fattening dishes; exercise vigorously when you get back home.
