Unique Dining Experience

Very unusual concept, but good food. Romie sauce is a unique cream sauce with crawdad's, onions, and other ingredients. Prices are a bit high,and menu could use some options below 10 to12 dollars.Decor in a slightly gutted grocery store is unique and a bit dark. However, outside covered dining area... read more

This is by far my favorite go to restaurant in for lunch. South cooking, friendly staff, fast service. I always eat here at least two or three times when I am in Tupelo. Its consistently good. Love, love, love the lemon crunch dessert also.

Best fried green tomatoes anywhere. Dressy casual atmosphere and reasonable prices. Your meal always surprises with a gourmet twist.

I sat at the bar and had the Redfish special and it was ok but I thought it was a little expensive for what we ate.

My wife and I tried Romeys Sunday after church....very disappointed. We had heard good things and was looking forward to the experience. Meal was strictly OK ..small portions, school cafeterias taste, the server was not rude but definitely uninterested in our being there... I hear it is still popular....I don't get it

Standard southern fare, uninspired cooking. Service is adequate but atmosphere is straight from the mid 20th century. Popular with locals for reasons unknown.

I've eaten at Romies Grocery twice. The first time I was underwhelmed by the service, but last night I tried it a second time and it was horrible. Th staff was friendly and our waitress kept the glasses full, however our food took over 45 mins to get to us, probably a full hour. I had to ask our waitress... More

This is one hidden treasure that it will pay you to find. The best food available in north Mississippi. Their main course is always excellent and the desserts are unbelievable. If you ever make it to Tupelo, MS you have to try Romie's. The owners are wonderful people and they really do treat you like family.

I love Romie's plate lunches. Great variety and you must try the fried cornbread. For dinner, the parking lot is always packed. You can't go wrong at Romie's.
