REX NELSON: The Delta food tour

Posted: January 17, 2018 at 4:30 a.m.

We leave Little Rock no later than 8 a.m. for the Delta food tour. After all, the first barbecue stop is Jones Bar-B-Q Diner at Marianna, and James Harold Jones is known to run out of food early. It will be a 12-hour day. Come hungry because we'll eat at least five times to experience the three Delta food groups--barbecue, tamales and fried fish.
