Mississippi Tips


They eat a lot of catfish in this state.  If you want to know where to get the best catfish, just ask a local.

Biloxi, MS

Amusement park-
Biloxi Beach Amusement Park , 1785 Beach Blvd., Biloxi, MS (228) 374-4338 -small park with small coaster

Clarksdale, MS

Hicks' Variety Foods, 305 S. State Street, Clarksdale, MS 38614-6313
(662) 624-9887, along the blues highway, this place is famous for Tamales.

Greenville, MS

Doe's Eat Place in Greenville (Make sure you go the original and not their spur by the highway). A very famous place for their 40oz. Porterhouse steaks, French fries, and tamales

Hattiesburg, MS

Leatha's Bar-B-Que Inn is located at 6374 US Highway 98 West
on the left, 3 miles past the Interstate 59 bridge, behind Ken Pickett's RV Sales. Open Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. Closed Sundays and Mondays. She serves melt-in-your-mouth ribs, tender beef short ribs, all covered with a very unique sauce, it's sweet, but not overly so. Amazing stuff.

Jackson, MS
Mayflower Café. A downtown, 50s diner that has retained its character. Like many places in Jackson, there is a Greek influence on the food. The seafood salad is especially memorable. Make sure you try the Comeback sauce. Comeback is, apparently, a Jackson food quirk. I guess you would call it a spicy Thousand Island but much, much better. I like it best on crackers.

Ocean Springs, MS

The Shed-www.theshedbbq.com, 7501 Highway 57
Ocean Springs, MS 39565 (228) 875-9590-Divey BBQ joint with a whole load of charm
Oxford, MS

Oxford Town paper.
