For more than 100 years Taylor Grocery has been a staple in Taylor Mississippi. Since 1977 it’s been “That Catish place” to travelers and students. It’s reputation is one that proceeds itself and stands the test of time. Now we’re no fool. We know not everyone is in to catfish, good music and sweet tea but we can only do what we do best. Here we’d like to thank those that took the time to sing our praises. From coast to coast you’ve shared your memories, with the pen and film, and we thank you.
Get a glimpse of the Taylor Grocery experience in just over 3 minutes.
“I want to tell you to just go to Taylor Grocery and Restaurant yourself instead of relying on a dozen iPhone photos and a few sentences. But we’re in Nebraska, and Mississippi probably isn’t on your bucket list (speaking of cliché) though I’d recommend you add it. Anyway. Here goes.” Sarah Baker Hansen of Omavore (thanks for the fabulous photographs Sarah!)

“I hope the next time I come the wait is extra long, just so I can sit on the porch myself and catch a good story or two.” We hope so too Caitlin… thanks for the great review!
“The story of Mississippi’s Taylor Grocery, and proprietors Lynn and Debbie Hewlett. It’s hailed as the South’s best catfish joint and it has a brown bag policy. Diners don’t mind waiting on the front porch for a table, sometimes for hours.” Southern Foodways Alliance
To find the country’s best fried catfish, you have to go to a small Mississippi town, where they cook it low and slow.
