Everyone has eaten the proverbial “gas station food,” right? Sure, you have. More times than not, it probably also wasn’t your favorite. Though some offer actual delectable bites, most are mediocre. Enter Chesterville Grocery in West Tupelo. This is not your ordinary filling station food. Their food doesn’t come prefabbed; it’s made from scratch right in the store.
The gang at Chesterville Grocery gets up early in order to supply the community with tasty morsels that are hot and ready, so you can swing by and pick up breakfast on the way to school or work.
My favorite is the tenderloin biscuit. It overflows with thinly sliced, crispy fried, and yes, tender, tenderloin. They offer them plain, or with cheese, or egg and cheese. Any way you get it, it’s good! Also available are sausage biscuits, bacon, ham, and smoked sausage biscuits. If you are lucky, and get there early enough, you can grab a fried bologna biscuit! Boys and girls…they are good!
Lunch? There’s a bunch! Delicious vegetable and meat plate lunches, ginormous smoked burgers, with or without cheese, and dressed any way you like them, smoked sausage dogs, corn dogs, fried chicken, chicken tenders, the best (and biggest) fried pork chops in town, ribs, rib tips, pizza, pizza sticks, and potato logs — not to mention the best dough burger I have ever eaten.
Friday is catfish and hush puppy day, y’all!
Chesterville also offers a nice selection of freshly baked desserts, and they also have a cold-cut counter.
Remember hoop cheese and saltines? They have it!
Be sure and check their Facebook page for daily plate lunch specials.
Their prices are low, but the quality of their food ranks high on the totem pole.
Good people and good food. It doesn’t get any better than that.
