The best source for everything Deep South USA


Deep South USA Blog

Fancy a bite? You’re never far from excellent eats in the South, be it a home-made barbecue sandwich or a star-quality ten-course dinner. If it’s truly Southern comfort you want, we got you covered. The Blue & White Restaurant has been a local Tunica favourite since 1924.

Blue & White Restaurant, Tunica

Back then it doubled as a Greyhound-bus stop, news stand and petrol station, operated by the Pure Oil Company. In 1937, Pure moved the Blue & White to its current location on Blues Highway 61, where it has been satisfying thousands of travellers and multiple generations of locals ever since.

What makes this a real Mississippi must-eat is that owners Steven Barbieri and Joe Weiss make sure that tradition runs deep at the Blue & White. Everything’s fresh and cooked from scratch by a family-driven staff. And it shows: the classic American diner interior – all blue and white, of course – attracts the peckish like a magnet, while the mouth-watering menu keeps them coming back for more. Southern staples like fried green tomatoes, BBQ pork, biscuits & gravy and chicken & dumplings will blow your socks off.

One look at its customers will tell you all you need to know. Every meal here comes with a hearty slice of life, varying from casino fans, riverboat captains and blues travellers to Tunica’s mayor and local law enforcement, which is proudly powered by Blue & White’s unforgettable donuts. Enjoy!
