Not impressed. We were told this would be good food. The best in Clarksdale. Not the case. Was not impressed and expensive for mediocre quality.

Made a pilgrimage to The Crossroads and Abe's is right across the street. Got a rib tip plate to go and took it back to the hotel. Generous portion of chunks of meat, beans and slaw. It's Southern BBQ so it's more vinegary than I like but it was tasty.

The food was delicious and filling! And the murals and statues within the restaurant are cute and quirky.

We ate an early dinner here and enjoyed it. I had the rib plate and my friend had the pulled pork plate. Portions were big and we enjoyed both. The service was good - fast and efficient. Definitely worth a stop.

Abe's was our first stop for lunch while visiting Clarksdale. They didn't disappoint! My husband ordered the ribs and loved them. I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was delicious! The portions were large and the prices were reasonable.

I had the BBQ pork platter and my hubby had the ribs. Everything was delicious. The sauces used were very good and the coleslaw was also excellent. The place was clean and the service was friendly and prompt. The only reason I withheld a star was that the ribs were not as"fall off the bone" tender as the ribs at... More

I'm originally from Cleveland, MS but I've been gone for 44 years. We recently went to the Delta as tourists, including a trip to Abe's BBQ. I've driven past Abe's since I was a young boy. Never stopped to eat there until my tourist trip. Bolstered by articles in The Delta Magazine and a Facebook site devoted to the Delta,... More

Heard great stories about the famous Abes and decided to check it out. The food was good and typical BBQ food fare, however, I must admit some of the BBQ food we experienced in Memphis and Nashville tasted better and was more flavoursome. Maybe because Abes was talked up so much we left a little disappointed. Abes prices were good... More
