Shortly after arriving here we heard about a local place for BBQ in the ‘city’ (actually now down to a town) of Yazoo City called Ubon’s. We tried it and agreed that it worth all the praise. My wife, Pat, had been aware that Ubon’s has participated in an event held in Central Park known as “Mississippi in the Park” and that they be up there this coming weekend for the “Big Apple BBQ Block Party” held in the Madison Square Park. Ubon’s has recently had their special Bloody Mary mix picked up by Fairway Markets in NYC.
The restaurant is a modest building that is located near the “Blues Trail” which is the roadside marker in the lower right corner of the picture. The maker itself in this picture calls out a well know blues singer who after a full life ended up in Yazoo City.
