  • Everything
  • Local tradition is a bag of ruffles with BBQ sauce. Big Abe chili cheeseburger with slaw is amazing.
  • Sucks. Place closed on Sundays.
  • Of course you gotta stop on the drive over. Food and service great, wanted a little rub on the ribs, but still a good stop
  • Outstanding food, but that sauce is hard to beat. Some of the best Ive had! Dont miss out on the tamales either. Awesome spot, right on the crossroads!
  • Great sandwiches and friendly people
  • Had tamales. Nothing much.
  • Great pulled pork sandwich, right at the crossroads where Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil.
  • BBQ pork sandwich. Get the big Abe size. Regular is too small
  • Head south of Memphis on Highway 61 and youll find the Big Abe, a double-decker sandwich topped with slaw and drenched in a peppery sauce youll want to drink by the bottle.
  • The tamales covered with chili were great!
  • Not great for vegetarians (big surprise). But the staff is nice and they do their best.
  • Everything on the menu is good.Try the comeback sauce n everything.
  • Good food, Good sauce. I had to leave before they rolled me out.
  • Classic BBQ at the crossroads. Founded in 1924 and still going. A must stop in the delta.
  • Great BBQ!!! Make sure you order the "Big Abe" pork sandwich. Best food at the crossroads.
