Restaurants & Bars Central South

My husband and son are about to go on a long weekend trip to Vicksburg, to the civil war historic park. This is completely out of any of our areas of competence foodwise, all of us being from parts north. My husband says ask about barbecue, but I don't even know if there is barbecue there particularly? If there is, they would want to try it, but also should probably be warned about any differences from Chicago barbecue. Also, I know my son would love some southern fried chicken. My husband wants to know if it is too early for fried green tomatoes, which is the one southern dish we do know and love. And grits? He has never had grits, so anything to know about eating grits, when, where, with what? I guess they are probably looking for classic southern food, nothing upscale, just good food, not too far from the park, most likely. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated to help introduce them to southern cuisine! (and if there are any particular food specialties that should be brought back to me in Chicago, hey, that would be a great bonus!)
