Abe's Bar-B-Q Restaurant Review

: In business since 1924, Abe's sits at the most famous intersection in blues history, at Highways 49 and 61, immortalized in song by bluesman Robert Johnson. Among the entertainers who have feasted in this famous 'cue spot are Paul Simon, Charlie Pride and Conway Twitty. The tangy house-made barbecue sauce is the key to this success story. Expatriate Mississippians and fans have it shipped all over the country.
