Very good food.

My first time here and it was delicious. Great BBQ and awesome lemonade. My husband and I really enjoyed the food. My only complaint is that they should label the Sauses in bottles at the buffet, I put some spicy vinger stuff on mine thinking it was BBQ Sause but I drowned it in BBQ Sause once I... read more

Excellent chicken and wonderful buffet. Do not let the Outside concern, real nice inside. Just some good old southern classics. Again, all I tried was the chicken and sides. The gizzards were also very good.

At one time Dukes was the place to go for food. The past couple of years the quality of the food has been very disappointing. I will not be going back.

A favorite buffet for the hunters and locals. Typical fried chicken, bbq pork and country style sides. Homemade desserts and good iced tea. Plenty to eat, great price, nothing fancy, but felt to be welcome no matter if you are in your "hunter's wardrobe" or casual attire. I don't think I would want to eat there twice a week because...

We did take out as we're touring and have a dog with us. The ribs were tender, however the pulled pork was not. The hash and slaw weren't what we're used to and the hush puppies were good. If from Texas, don't expect comparable BBQ or sides. Not sure what Duke's hash is made from, however in Googling the recipe,... More

Not impressed at all. It was unclear that it was a buffet style restaurant. It was unclear if you seated yourself. When we went through the line, many trays were empty. Won't go back.

We were disappointed. The place was drab and some of the trays were empty so we had to get up and look again since it is buffet style. When saying it was our first time, there was no mention of how it all works or what they had to offer. We ate and left and decided right then that we... More

Duke's BBQ serves only buffet-style and has a large number of home-cooked vegetables as well as barbecue. The price is reasonable and includes several desserts. They are only open Thursday through Sunday. There is a bit of competition between this barbecue restaurant and the other barbecue restaurant in Ridgeland. Both are delicious. From my limited experience, the other offered more... More

Home cooked southern food and BBQ. The fried chicken is the best! The price is very reasonable and you eat as much as you want.
