In the early 1800’s, Natchez “Under the Hill” in Mississippi was a gathering place for the “Keelboatmen” bringing goods and supplies down the Mississippi River on their way to New Orleans. Each boat had its own “champion” fighter and when two boats met it was the custom for these “champions” to fight for the honored title of “Cock of the Walk” the “Best of the Best”.

In the late 1970’s some folks got together at that historic site in Natchez on the Mississippi and developed a combination of southern style recipes to compliment their specialty of golden fried catfish. the name of “Cock of the Walk” was reborn—the “Best of the Best”.

Our casual, rustic atmosphere, and service personnel attired in period dress of the riverboat era will bring you back to the time of the old riverboat days and now, something for everyone in your party!

Lil’ Dago’s – Natchez, MS

Lil’ Dagos owners come from a long line of cooking Italians, and don’t be offended by the name, it’s what their mother used to call them when it came time to round them up for dinner. It’s their fabulous sweet and tangy red sauce that keeps locals coming back often, and be careful when you order their spaghetti and meatball entree, one meatball will probably suffice as they are quite large. Although the menu consists of primarily Italian style foods, they do serve a tasty filet that can go toe to toe with any fine dining establishment. The atmosphere is casual and quite relaxing, and though it’s located a little off the beaten path, it’s worth the couple of minutes drive to get there.
