#1,737 Romie’s Grocery.
by Erin Napier
Since we’re up north visiting Ben’s parents for the weekend (for Ben’s early birthday!) we got to go to lunch at Romie’s Grocery in Tupelo. They catered our wedding reception and people still compliment us on how delicious the food was. The food I recall really loving at our wedding were the miniature buttermilk biscuits with ham, shrimp and cheese grits, hot artichoke dip, raspberry lemonade, and hot apple cider. Today we ate inside since it’s still so very hot here in Mississippi, and I had BBQ nachos (that remind me of Ole Miss football games) with fried green tomatoes, while Ben and his parents had the fried catfish blue plate special.
I’ve not gotten to eat here since the wedding. And it was just as delicious as I remember. If ever you find yourself visiting Elvis Presley’s birthplace, you really ought to do yourself a favor and go to Romie’s!
P.S. Share a Coke with your bros.
