Can't wait to go back. Wife and I had the catfish would love to go back and try the BBQ next time. It looks packed during the week at lunch hour all the time so you know it's gotta be good!

The fried green tomatoes, corn salad, roast chicken and fried catfish are all favorites. Friendly and attentive wait staff, always ready to refill your iced tea. Food and service always excellent. I guess I could be considered a "regular" since one waitress always remembers my name. The only down side- the dining area could use a thorough cleaning.

We ate here while passing through Mississippi. I'd never had Mississippi Barbecue with the vinegar sauce. It was delicious.

The Little Dooey is one of my wife's favorite places to eat. Normally we go to the one on 182, but this one happened to be closer to us the other day. The BBQ is not the best BBQ in the world, however, the sauce is what makes it so great. The sides are excellent as well. The service and... More

I got takeout here, the food was good, not the best I've had, but pretty good, and the price and service were both good as well.

Had lunch with a friend here. The food was good but what I had doesn't stand out in my mind. Service was polite and friendly.

My favorite healthy quick meal when I visit my family in Columbus. Delicious very generously sized grilled chicken salad! My folks love the fried catfish dinner which is also very generously portioned.

Had pulled chicken, fried green tomatoes, corn on the cob, tea. $13. Chicken was good and you use the BBQ sauce on the table.

This place cooks so much it takes awhile to read the board.They have BBQ which they have 2 different kinds of sauce (vinegar based). Fried catfish is really good, the fried green tomatoes are the best in town with homemade ranch dressing.
