This is our second visit to the Shed. It is just so much fun. If you are a neat freak you won't like it. But, if you like quirky outta the way places this is your place. The barbeque is just right. Not too spicy or hot. The sides are wonderful and the atmosphere will lighten any day.

The Shed is almost an institution down here. The owners went to school at Ole Miss with us; we knew them as passing acquaintances. They learned from the Memphis-style BBQ restaurants, such as the world famous Rendezvous and Corky's. When they first opened, the food was top notch; the ribs were superb, the pulled pork was great, and the chicken was worth every penny.

Then they got famous. They went on Regis and Kathy and won the best sauce competition or something along those lines, and they started expanding. Gulfport, Mobile, Destin, Hattiesburg....and now its just not as good. Its a simple fact, the original restaurant had the same owners and cooks and managers for years and they had their food and their service down to an art, and now the product is watered down. Our food has gotten increasingly mediocre as the visits have gone on. The pulled pork portion is more sauce than meat; the chicken is dry or has way too much fat on it; we've actually gotten orders of ribs that the meat was just off the bone in a pool of sauce.

Its a shame, it was a true Mississippi institution. The service is still friendly, the atmosphere is still fun. But this was a high-priced BBQ shack that stopped providing high-quality BBQ.

This is a barbeque "joint" that was shown on "Diner's, Drive-in's & Dives" on Foodnetwork. It probably goes in the "dives" category because it is very rustic. Notable for the dollar bills that decorate the whole ceiling and most of the walls---stuck up with plastic forks! Great barbeque and good to say "I've been there".

We were served really fast. We couldn't make up our mind, so many choices. The cashier gave us her two favorite menu's Pulled pork and Barbeque Ribs. So we ended up with Barbeque Ribs, which was very tasty. It was a down to earth experience ,dollars bills hanging on the ceiling and writing on everything. Would surely go again.

We learned about this place on "Diners, Drive-in and Dives" and it sounded good. Food was tasty. My teenage son said it was his favorite BBQ ever. Good value and portions. Tasty!
