We are from Chicago where we have great BBQ, and you have to chew the meat off the bones. Well here in South Florida everywhere we go they announce that the meat falls right off the rib bones. WE DON'T like it that way. At Mississippi Sweets the St. Louis Ribs were just the way we like them . Meaty and chewy, served with sweet potato fries which were done just right and cornbread and cole slaw. The sauces were interesting and had several different ones to choose from. All met our expectations and we really enjoyed our meal.

This place has above average BBQ, ribs are ok, the chicken sandwich and salads have gone downhill. Service was good last time we ate there, the place is clean, and atmosphere is decent for a strip mall. My husband loves the side Mississippi sweets which is fried sweet potato chips, otherwise the cole slaw and baked beans are unimpressive. Wish they hadn't started skimping on fresh ingredients and portion sizes.

We have been fans of this finger lickin' barbecue joint for many years and enjoy the simplicity of the food and menu. The barbecue sauce is sweet and tangy, whether atop their chicken or tender baby back ribs. We enjoy their "sweets" or paper thin sweet potato fries which are addictive and served up by the tray full! Their apple sauce is a cold, crunchy, treat as is the buttery corn bread that tastes more like a dessert than a side dish! The wing & rib basket is another family favorite, serving up two favs at once!

Of the items we tasted the Pulled Pork was the winner and the platter portion was also quite generous. The ribs were also good as was the cornbread and service. Unfortunately the sides of coleslaw and baked beans were barely mediocre.

We found the location to be comfortable, lively and just fine for a BBQ dinner.
