Fairpark Grill @ 343 East Main Street, Tupelo, MS. Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
The Grill has a great location in Downtown Tupelo between Fairpark and the BankcorpSouth arena. They offer everything from Classic American cuisine, bar food, seafood, steaks, and much more!
The Grill is great to just hang out at the bar and unwind or reserve a table for a special occasion with family and friends.
To start, I went with one of their made in Mississippi craft beer selections. Thanks to some helpful suggestions, I went with a Lucky Town Pub Ale brewed in Jackson.
For my meal, I decided on their Bourbon Street Nachos. It’s listed in their starter section, but one person can make a meal of it. It’s chips loaded down with shrimp, crawfish, andouille sausage, sautéed red bell peppers, onions, and chives. And with a side of salsa and house made quest dip, let the party begin!
For a loaded Nachos like this, their is no wrong way to eat it. I do have a system though. I start out loading each chip carefully to fully soak in the beauty of the dish. Once full appreciation has been attained, I get more aggressive and dig in! This starts with me soaking the entire plate with the cheese and salsa. After that, I begin crushing the chips and blending the entire mixture till I can fork each remaining savory bite.
Do I care what people may think while I am crushing my meal like rocks in a quarry? NAH…sometimes you just gotta eat like nobody’s watching! This is true for a lot of tasty foods. It’s pretty to look at and delicious to eat, but you can’t be timid when it comes time to do what needs to be done.
If your not in the mood for nachos but like all the toppings, you should try their NOLA Pasta. Same Cajun flare but with Cavatappi Pasta and Cajun jumbo cream sauce. For this visit it was a toss up between the two, but you gotta start somewhere!
The food was great and service was excellent… see y’all at Fairpark Grill!
