A couple friends and I went on a little Delta Blues excursion recently to Rosedale, MS and Clarksdale, MS. Both of these locations claim to be where Robert Johnson ‘came to the crossroads and sold his soul.’
We ate lunch at Abe’s BBQ in Clarksdale near those crossroads.
Abe’s has been around since about 1924.
I had the pulled pork sandwich which was very good.
The service was good and friendly.
My friends both had the chopped beef and both said it was ok but not great, so maybe the pork is a better option as it was juicy and had good texture.
Either way, it’s always good to try something different. As far as the Robert Kohnson crossroads, we all agreed that Rosedale was a better choice as the real location.
