Coleman’s (later known as Thompson’s) used to be a free-standing restaurant that was a favorite of ours. The owner, a really friendly guy, has now leased that space out and operates out of this trailer, which parks at the intersection of Riddle Rd and Hwy 55, Wednesday through Saturday.
The mobile version of Coleman’s has a much-reduced menu but the quality has not gone down at all. When we went by, they were offering fish, chicken, and pork chops (all fried). I’m not sure if the selection changes from day to day. We got pork and chicken “sandwiches.”
Both were delicious. Their batter is on the thicker side, and extremely crispy and flavorful, with a bit of spiciness. Both meats were also wonderfully juicy. The bread was a much-needed way to sop up some greasiness and allow us to eat the fresh-from-the-fryer meat when it was still too hot to handle. The sandwiches were a delicious deal at $3 each.
