The steaks were good but the salads were not much more than iceburg and oil and the fried were soggy. Since there were no menus, the waitress just told us what they had (three steak choices, two shrimp choices, and spaghetti). We got two 10 oz. steaks and spaghetti and our bill was $167 without tip. My husband had three... More

Very run down building. They do not have a menu, and frustrated when asked what they have. If you sit in the kitchen you see them working and washing dishes. In the summer it is very hot, only window units. There is not a parking lot, you park on the street. Sketchy neighborhood, there is a security guard watching vehicles... More

This is the coolest no frills restaurant ever! We had the bone in ribeyes and they were broiled to perfection. Yes, it's expensive, but well worth it to enjoy a high quality steak with a one of a kind atmosphere.

Okay, I like history, dives, unusual places to visit. I have been wanting to go to Doe's for sometime because I had watched numerous episodes about it on television. When my wife and I decided to do a southern excursion we stayed with friends in Benoit and make it to Doe's for dinner. First, it is not in a great... More

This is truly one of the great, interesting, fun and delicious restaurants anywhere. It has a fascinating history that you can read on its website and sometimes there is a sheet with it on it at the table. There are no menus. Basically you just ask the waitress what steak they've got that will serve however many people you've got... More

Do not be intimidated by neighborhood or appearance. This is not a fancy restaurant but if you want to hang out with locals and have a great meal this is the place. The food is outstanding. We had the porterhouse as well as the fried shrimp. Both were the best ever. Very friendly down home atmosphere. Get your own beer... More

We went in for dinner on a Friday night. The place was packed. The character this restaurant has is unreal. Picture an old house that has sort of been converted into a restaurant but not really. The steaks, salad, shrimp and tamales were all outstanding. I had the bone in ribeye. It was excellent. If you go, don't be in... More

In terrible location. Very, very rundown. Floors unlevel. Could see the ground and grass outside through the wall at the floor. Lots of flies inside. Our table was in the kitchen no more than 36" away from the stove where they were frying French fries. I could not eat the limp, soggy salad. No dressing options, either. Only Italian. 2... More

Does is the best steak in the Delta!! It is an experience to eat at Doe's, and the steaks are wonderful, but the broiled shrimp are excellent as well! And the staff is as friendly as family. The salads are humble but delicious - ask for anchovies if you want them on your salad. But a reservation is always a... More
