Mississippi - Part Nine - Lorman - The Best Fried Chicken Ever

I'm trying a blogging app on the iPad so this might not go well.
It just goes on and on, doesn't it, this Mississippi trip.

This might be the best post of them all.

Yes, there are two starches on this plate.
Potato salad and macaroni and cheese.
I had several green salads the past few days so I skipped the green food.
Well, there were lima beans under there somewhere.

The Old Country Store in Lorman, Mississippi does have
the best fried chicken I have ever had.
And I've had the fried chicken at the Loveless Cafe in Nashville.

There were probably 10 or more different side dishes and 3 or 4 meat choices.

You might have seen

Food Network's Alton Brown and his "Feasting on Asphalt 2",
Episode 2, Fry Me A River

where they visited the Old Country Store and had fried chicken.

Mr. D himself, Arthur Davis, with my husband.

I was a little in awe that the place was actually there, looked just as it did on TV, that there was so much food, and the man himself was there directing the whole thing.

My husband's plate.

BTW, it is not "meat and three".

It's buffet, serve yourself, all you can eat.

There are plenty of kind ladies there with Mr. D to bring your ice tea and dessert.

I didn't get a shot of the hot blackberry cobbler with ice cream.

There is a photo on the Roadfood website.
But can't you just taste it?

There's even a little entertainment.

He can sing too. 

You gotta go get chicken.

This looks so good that it's tempting to make a trip to MS just for the fried chicken! Love the looks of the store, too!

Fantastic story and such wonderful pictures. I love finding these kinds of places to visit. Given the looks of the building I might have passed this up as a safe place to dine. What a mistake you have shown me that would be. I will be more open to these old places the next time I come across one.

What an interesting restaurant! It sure doesn't look like much from the outside but I love the inside shot of the long shelves and I guess the food is worth a stop. Lots of character in that place!

That is a cool looking place! Much more fun than many of the modern restaurant chains. The food looks delicious! Nice job using the iPad, too!

Looks like a "good" place to stop!
