White table cloth restaurant. The service was excellent. The sides, and bread were both excellent. We had steak which was cooked exactly as we ordered. We had bananas foster for the first time. It was excellent. A really nice place to eat. A little pricey, so it might be a special occasions restaurant only.

El Sombrero Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By RedHornet72653 - Mountain Home, AR

We stopped in for a late dinner and picked this one after going downtown, because the lot was full. When we got inside we figured out the DJ and Karaoke was why. The crowd was 30's to 60's and obviously regulars. The DJ was talented and did well, though he could turn the music down, a LOT! About 50% would have been good. We were right behind the system.

The food was absolutely excellent and the service was good. The lot was slimming when we left, though it was just down the street from our hotel and handy. The restaurant is better than the karaoke and they can do well without it alone.

We had different dishes and we would suggest this little place.

Turn down the music is my only observation.

Blue Plate Specials Monday-Friday at lunch. Also open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Homemade Amish bread is our big favorite amongst our customers. It is brought out to a cutting board every few minutes hot from the oven served with our own honey butter that we whip in house. We also make our own sandwich bread and buns from this recipe.

We were disappointed. Either there's no competition in the area or the crowd eating lunch here has never tasted REAL food -- like fresh veggies. When I ordered at the counter, I assumed the daily special of chicken & dumplings would be homemade. Clearly it wasn't, as it tasted no better than Dinty Moore canned food. Most of the veggies were canned as well. The only decent tasting item was the hot Amish bread, which was available only half-way thru eating our food. And yes, we had to get up and go to the counter to get a loaf before others beat us to it. Ironic, the bread is the only thing that saved my rating from being "Poor"

We went on a Sunday and discovered they weren't serving off of the regular menu, but off of a Soul Food Special Menu. We tried the baked chicken, fried chicken and the ribs. All excellent. The sides were all fabulous - squash, mac and cheese, black eyed peas, rice and gravy. Served with cornbread and a dessert - we chose the strawberry cake and peach cobbler - just okay but who cares when the rest of the food was so good. Lots of food for $10. Some of the best seasoned food we've had and we are from New Orleans!

We stopped for dinner while passing through Canton, and found this great little restaurant. Great BBQ with delicious sauce, homemade side dishes, and friendly service. The only reason I didn't give it an excellent rating is that the seating inside the restaurant is very limited.

Tomahawk Steak Company

Reviewed By Jackie B - Jackson, Mississippi

My wife and I ate here during the flea market. The service was terribly slow but that was expected. I ordered the shrimp poboy and my wife ordered a hamburger. The poboy only had 2 shrimp and instead of the usual dressings. they were covered with slaw! Needless to say it was terrible. They brought my poboy and it was 20 minutes later before my wife's hamburger came! Being busy is not an excuse for serving bad food!

I was stating at a local hotel, and ordered delivery. The order taker was very courteous and spoke very clearly. Delivery was faster than expected, and the delivery person was cleanly dressed and very friendly. My Extravaganzza pizza was hot and great!

Been here several times, love the food. Great parking as it is in a Love's Travel Center. Very clean and staff were very good with customers and took time to make sure all orders were right. Ordered takeout, has always been right unlike other fast food places. Sliders are all great and Max roast Beef is my grandson's choice every time. Good for families and people on a budget. We will stop next time we are in the area, love the Reuben Corned Beef, but I am waiting for them to have the Chicken Salad Sandwich again (I think that is in the fall).

Ratliff Ferry

Reviewed By TLR200 - Sterlington, Louisiana

If you are biking on the Natchez Trace Parkway or boating on the Pearl River, this is a cool place to stop for a burger or chicken strips. They have an outdoor area and a small indoor area for eating. There was live music outdoors, an added plus. The Burger was good and reasonably priced. My husband got chicken strips and tater tots. Both were good. There were lots of bikers there the day we visited and they have a gas pump right on the river, so there was boat traffic also. A convenience store is also connected to the restaurant. This was a very busy, fun place to visit. We will return.

Bumper's Drive In

Reviewed By debinbabbitt - Babbitt, Minnesota

We stopped at Bumper's, which was down the road from our hotel, for a quick dinner. It's a drive-in restaurant. We ordered from our car and then sat on a picnic table to eat. We ordered a chicken salad and a catfish dinner and both were pretty good. Service was actually pretty fast. Staff was friendly. I would return!
