The value here is terrific. We have tried their barbecued chicken, Rack of ribs, pulled pork, and Brunswick stew. All were very tasty and delicious. The Brunswick stew was outstanding. Their sweet potato crinkle fries are the best. The waitresses are efficient and personable and the prices are very reasonable for the quality of food and the portions that you... More

This is a family favorite. They have the best chicken wings, ribs and pulled pork. Don't forget the sweet potatoes chips. The menu is small so they have perfected the recipes.

I had no idea what the title referred to on my first visit but have learned it's sweet potato French fries. The are lattice style and pretty good.

We've eaten here a number of times and the food can be very good. But the last couple of times we've been compelled to send food back. It came cold or undercooked. The famous ribs were not up to their standards. Please take a moment to visit your plan. We like you but it has to be done properly.

Yes the ribs are really good. The Brunswick stew outstanding! The basket of ribs and wings are a good item to order. The sides are fried regular potatoes or fried sweet potatoes, cornbread, baked beans, coleslaw or applesauce. They also have choctaw catfish, what ever that is, as well as many other items. Ill have to try some of the... More

We ate at this restaurant a couple of times. In the evening the wait time can be up to 45 minutes, but it is worth it We had the ribs and wings plate with half regular fries and half sweet potatoe fries. The ribs fall off the bone and are superb. The wings are excellent as well. You do not... More

Small restaurant located in a shopping center. We found this place based on the reviews and it did not disappoint. The Mississippi sweets are actually homemade sweet potato chips. They are highly addictive! Barbeque pulled pork sandwich is delicious and quite large. Try this place. You'll be glad you did.

I am not kidding, the cornbread was absolutely amazing, everyone in our group loved it. Three people had the BBQ 1/2 chicken, and it came with nice char marks, was juicy and tasty. One person had the Brunswick stew and said it was great. Best sides were the mississippi sweets , which are freshly fried sweet potato chips, and the... More
