Does anyone remember in MS - Country Squire Jr. Restaurant? Early '80's...

I have lived all over the south, and spent a few years (jr. high) in Tupelo, MS. I now live near Pittsburgh, and have such fond memories of Country Squire Jr.!

It was a little restaurant somewhere near Tupelo. We'd go once a week in the early '80's, and get their 'all you could eat fried catfish'. I've never had catfish like this since - it was the whole fish, fried, but before they fried it they cut and sectioned it in such a way that you just took your fork and lifted off piece by piece of succulent, perfectly corn meal-fried fish.

You cleaned one side of it, then flipped it over and did the same. I kid you not - when you were done with it, it looked like the fish skeleton in a cartoon that the cat pulls out of his mouth! lol And if that's not good enough, it came with a bowl of lemon pieces, and a plate of raw onions. O.M.G. Just thinking about it brings tears of joy! :)

Am I the only one that remembers this place? I *think* there was one in Utica, as well, but I'm not sure. If this place is still around, I'm seriously considering a road trip.
