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.

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

Heard this was the place to eat. Heard the BBQ food was awesome. However we had the fried chicken sandwich and fries, really lovely and reasonable too. Very authentic.

....trading a little me feels on past glories and reputation going by the date of the faded newspaper and magazine reviews and awards go. Ribs and sides were average at best. Chilli OK nothing special. Table service was good. Place a little rustic and grimey.....would try somewhere else.
