“Standards have slipped, crummy atmosphere, tough ribs”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Goldie's was a staple of the Vicksburg food scene for many years, and maybe it was better years ago, but you better skip it now:
1. The ribs are tough - they don't know that more hours smoking will make them tender?
2. The sides are BORING. They taste like they were low-end commercial supply from a food company. How hard is it to make sides from real potatoes or real beans?
3. Bread is paper Wonder-style bread. Yuck.
4. Ambiance is loud and ringing - you can't hear yourself talk. Cleanliness is a bit suspicious, too.

The good: the BBQ chicken is delicious. It IS smoked long enough.

“Dirty!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

This place was disgusting! The food wasn't terrible, but I couldn't enjoy it for the dried, stuck on leftover food from past customers on the table! It has the potential to be a nice little hometown meal place, if the waitresses would clean their tables and quit hovering gossiping very loudly!

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

Goldies is a historic staple in Vicksburg. The service is good, atmosphere is horrible, and the barbecue should be avoided.

The smoked meats (besides the barbecue) may be ok, but the pulled BBQ is equivalent to sauce soaked beef jerky.

“Good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

This is a local eating place which to me is usually better than the tourist traps. We had the Ribs, cole slaw and onion rings. Not the best I've ever had, but they were tender and the sauce was tasty and portions a little larger than average. Great value for the money, very friendly southern hospitality.
