The Hollywood is a local restaurant ten miles north of Tunica, Mississippi, fifteen minutes from the Tennessee-Mississippi state line. It's open only on weekends and has a loyal clientele that loves to sample the specializes of the house: fried catfish, frog legs, steaks and fried dill pickles. The restaurant is a 130 year old building that was once a plantation a commissary, a stage coach stop and a railroad station. This dish was created on the spot when the kitchen had no more catfish to fry, but lots of batter and lots of pickles. Source: unknown
