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

If you love ribs, this is the place to go. When you order a full rack, they always give a few extra ribs. Whenever I go there I never look at the menu, because I know what I am going to order long before I walk in the place. Chicken soup with chunks of chicken, noodles, carrots, onions and celery....

I love barbecue ribs but rarely do I find someplace that makes them so well I would eat a full meal and then want more to take home... The people there are incredibly friendly, the service is fast, the food is to die for. This is a very casual place that you should absolutely treat yourself to, I promise you... More

Restaurant was busy when we arrived during lunch. We momentarily waited for restaurant staff member to clean table for us to sit. There are no outside seats. Ceiling is decorated with expired license plates which made me consider in participating. We ordered cup of stew with house made cornbread which is freshly baked & moist; ribs with barbecue chicken &... More

Fabulous local joint best BBQ in Boca area. Best ribs. Best chicken. Fabulous sides and sandwiches too. Good wine and beer selection. Staff warm and welcoming. Service fast and efficient. Always lines out the door. Well worth any wait to get a table. Highly recommended!

8 friends had dinner together & celebrated a birthday. Wait staff were great & delivered our meals all together. No problem with our mostly separate checks. Special dessert was served efficiently with a candle. Their key lime pie is memorable!! Always love the baby back ribs. Loving this place for 30 years!

We come here often but out of season. The ribs are meaty and lean. The chips are the best. Desserts are homemade. During winter season come early or late.

Good food, reasonable prices! If you are in the mood for barbeque, you can't go wrong! Small place which is always hoping on the weekends! Great for take out as well.
