Abe's Barbecue has been a part of the Delta since 1924, when it was first located at 4th and Florida, Clarksdale, Mississippi. After World War I, Abe's was moved to its present location at the famous Crossroads of Highways 61 and 49, where it shares its fame with the Legendary Bluesman, Robert Johnson. Many entertainers have enjoyed the famous barbecue pork and beef, hot tamales and ribs served at Abes. They include ZZ Top, Paul Simon, Big Jack Johnson, Thomas Harris, Steve Azar, Charlie Pride, Conway Twitty -- just to name a few. Many have tried to emulate the delicious tangy barbecue sauce, but have failed in their efforts--There is only one barbecue sauce deserving enough to be served to its loyal Delta customers, and that is Abes. Abes has also gained fans in all parts of the United States, where it ships its famous barbecue sauce to new customers daily. Abes also caters parties of all sizes, from small downhome gatherings to the largest most elegant affairs.
