Pimento cheese sammiches with bacon and layer cake worthy of church suppers: Broma’s Deli in Brookhaven, Mississippi has a big menu full of Southern favorites. It’s a convenient stop for Tiger fans on their way to Starkville this weekend when LSU takes on Mississippi State in the team’s first away game of the season. (And first full game after last week’s weird lightening cancellation.) Hungry travelers might need a reliable road food option, and Broma’s has good chow right off I-55.
The vibe is pleasant – it’s sort of mod and industrial, and the menu is large and straightforward. There are sandwiches, burgers, wraps, salads, barbecue, melts, po’boys and plate lunches. The iced tea is cool and crisp and the coleslaw is homey and memorable. Here’s the Ole Brook Chicken Sandwich with melted Swiss that I scarfed down on a recent trip through the area. Nothing fancy, but juicy and totally satisfying. We also tried the Philly cheesesteak and salmon sandwich, and everything was yummy.
Broma’s is open 10 am to 10:30 pm on Saturday and Sunday, and 10 am to 11 pm on Friday. There’s another location near the mall in McComb, Mississippi, but it’s not right off the interstate. This is your pick if you’re eager to get back on the road.
