Kermit's Outlaw Kitchen

Top choice southern us in Tupelo

As unexpected as food finds get, the kitchen here changes its menu to reflect whatever produce, livestock and game it's receiving from local farmers. Dishes may range from bacon-wrapped salmon to ribeye steaks with beer-braised cabbage to baskets of okra and slow-smoked chicken, all served in a playful, unpretentious dining room. Delicious, and worth a stop.

Kermit's sister restaurant is the Neon Pig (1203 N Gloster St;, a butcher shop and eatery known for its house-ground hamburger, the Smash Burger.
