Mississippi Sweets is a legit BBQ spot! They make all of their BBQ and everything is delicious from the chicken to the pulled pork. We have been coming to Mississippi Sweets for years and it has never disappointed. Just make sure you bring a big appetite. We have also used them to cater parties that we have had and the... More

As a true Southern Gentleman and a former competition BBQ chef I know good BBQ. This ain't it. I had a beef sandwich with cornbread and green beans. The beef is shredded, probably because it's over cooked, overly salty and overly spiced. I couldn't taste the meat only the spices. Yuk. In the plus side the bun was delightful and... More

My husband and I usually go to Mississippi Sweets at least twice when visiting his dad in Florida. It's excellent for lunch or dinner. The wings, ribs, salads, and sandwiches are all wonderful, as are the iced teas, both sweet and unsweetened. The place is small enough for one server and you can see the grill from any table. Highly... More

The value here is terrific. We have tried their barbecued chicken, Rack of ribs, pulled pork, and Brunswick stew. All were very tasty and delicious. The Brunswick stew was outstanding. Their sweet potato crinkle fries are the best. The waitresses are efficient and personable and the prices are very reasonable for the quality of food and the portions that you... More

This is a family favorite. They have the best chicken wings, ribs and pulled pork. Don't forget the sweet potatoes chips. The menu is small so they have perfected the recipes.

I had no idea what the title referred to on my first visit but have learned it's sweet potato French fries. The are lattice style and pretty good.

We've eaten here a number of times and the food can be very good. But the last couple of times we've been compelled to send food back. It came cold or undercooked. The famous ribs were not up to their standards. Please take a moment to visit your plan. We like you but it has to be done properly.

Yes the ribs are really good. The Brunswick stew outstanding! The basket of ribs and wings are a good item to order. The sides are fried regular potatoes or fried sweet potatoes, cornbread, baked beans, coleslaw or applesauce. They also have choctaw catfish, what ever that is, as well as many other items. Ill have to try some of the... More

We ate at this restaurant a couple of times. In the evening the wait time can be up to 45 minutes, but it is worth it We had the ribs and wings plate with half regular fries and half sweet potatoe fries. The ribs fall off the bone and are superb. The wings are excellent as well. You do not... More
