Every once in a while I feel lucky. Not like, "I'm going to play the lottery" lucky, but more like, "wow, what did I do to deserve this?" lucky. May 23 was one of those days. On our once in a lifetime road trip vacation, we rolled into Jackson at 2:30 pm. Since the BF was on a BBQ tour along the banks of the Mississippi River, we needed some BBQ stat. The sign said "Fried Catfish Special Today," which is perfect for me, so we went to park the car. But Uh Oh. Chimneyville closes at 2 pm. The nice ladies getting off their shift couldn't think of any open barbecue joint on par in quality that might also serve fish. As we were getting ready to leave, Z, who I presume is the owner, came out and offered to feed us even though they were closed. YAY!!!
The place was adorable with great signage, red gingham table cloths, and a large dining room.
My BF said the pulled pork was out of this world. The potato salad was the best I've ever had. (Don't tell my grandmother!) And my catfish was cornmeal breaded crunchy deliciousness! The sauce is thin, spicy, and not too sweet. I don't believe the meat comes pre-sauced (sorry for not being in the know as I have not eaten poultry or red meat in 25 years.)
Our meal was fabulous and we were very appreciative of Z's hospitality. He really didn't have to do that at all, but he did and boy are we lucky!
