Dinner at Mississippi Sweets last evening was one for the books. Wow! Do these folks know how to do barbeque, or what?! Hubby ordered the pulled pork plate, and I chose the pulled pork sandwich. Both were excellent! Tender, flavorful, lean pulled pork. The Mississippi Sweets sweet potato chips were heavenly. Sliced ultra thin, perfectly fried to order, lightly salted..truly... More

The most consistent and best baby back ribs in Boca Raton. Great sweet potato fries also. Restaurant always crowded. Barbecue chicken also a winner. Not much atmosphere but very friendly service and great food.

If everyone in your dining group likes ribs or will settle for chicken this is a terrific place to go to. If there are people who would like a wider choice of food you can get ribs almost but not quite as good at Duffy's. The wines by the glass are only $4.95. They are acceptable but I would prefer...

We stayed in Boca while we were visiting family for a few days. Had a couple evenings to eat out and not impose on family for 5 nights of dinners. So we checked TA for highly rated restaurants. This was one of them. As someone who owns a smoker of his own I had high aspirations. Well it didn't disappoint.... More

With the bland nature of some shopping centre restaurants the fact that there were many other dinners queuing outside was a good indication of something to get excited about - they were not wrong! The 30min wait for a table flew by (free WiFi outside helped) then I was in. Staff all friendly and welcoming. Michelle was my server and... More

We (4) had a great lunch here. The food was true BBQ. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. We had a short wait at 1:00 on a Thursday. The prices were very affordable and reasonable. Pulled pork, 1/2 roasted bbq chicken and wings won high praise. And of course, you can't miss the Mississippi Sweets - comes in a... More

I've been going to Mississippi Sweets for the last 15 years and realized that they deserve a great rating and I have never rated them. Most the time during the season, you will wait 30-45 mins... go ahead and wait, its worth it! Brunswick stew is always a great start. Served with corn bread... it cant be missed. Then I... More

We visited Mississippi Sweets in Lake Worth and it was out of this world. We are staying in Boca for the week and were so happy to find another Mississippi Sweets. We have come back twice. So good!!!! The Chicken black n blue is my favorite! Too bad we leave today to go back to CT. This will be a... More

Mississippi Sweets is a legit BBQ spot in Boca! They make all of their BBQ and everything is delicious from the chicken to the pulled pork. We have been coming to Mississippi Sweets for over 15 years and it has never disappointed. Just make sure you bring a big appetite.

We went there for the ribs. I suppose lots of folks like their ribs over cooked and falling off the bone. I don't!! For safety, possibly they parboil the ribs first. The BBQ sauce was excellent. I ordered the half ribs and half chicken dinner. The portion was more than adequate. I also found the chicken, which looked great in... More
