Maybe you've missed it. It's out on Friars Point Rd. north of Clarksdale. It always looks closed to me but yesterday, Sunday, there was a dimly lit neon Open sign in the window. As it promotes itself as the "Home of the Famous "Two-Fisted" Burger" and I hadn't had a burger in a while, much less a famous one, and I was hungry, I stopped in.

The burger was normal sized, not really requiring two fists unless you have very small fists. But it wasn't a small burger. And it was okay, nothing all that special, pretty much a run of the mill, old-fashioned, straightforward burger with lettuce, tomato, red onion and pickle, mustard and mayo. It was a fairly thin patty so that what you tasted was the whole package rather than mostly the meat. The bun held together well and it did the trick. But there are plenty of better burgers to be found. It and a bottle of water cost $4.70 or something like that, so I'm not complaining.

Next time I want a burger I need to make the drive to Cleveland where they have a very fine one at the Airport Grocery - which you can get with their truly great grilled greenbeans. Or even all the way up to Holly Springs where the burger at Phillips Grocery is a thing of great beauty. Or if late at night and I've been drinking, the Rotel (chopped tomatoes and chilies mixed with melted Velveeta) Burger at Wop's on State St. in Clarksdale has its merits. I have heard that the burger at Abe's is also excellent, but every time I go in there I am distracted by the pulled pork.
