Stopped by here yesterday on our way to Starkville for a baseball game, and were not disappointed. The service was quick and friendly. You place your order at the counter and then your meal is brought out to you. I ordered the large BBQ pork sandwich, which came stacked high with pulled pork and also opted to have cole slaw...

The food is good and service was great the portions were very small and I left not feeling I had eaten dinner.

I went here with friends when we were in Columbus doing some volunteer work. I have eaten at Little Dooey's in Starkville many times and it is always delicious. This one was equally good! Catfish was so fresh and cooked just like I like it! The sides were great too!

I ordered ribs, pulled pork, sides and corn for my husband's birthday dinner. Everything was ready on arrival and was delicious! Especially the ribs. I'm picky about BBQ after living near Memphis but this was good!

Can't wait to go back. Wife and I had the catfish would love to go back and try the BBQ next time. It looks packed during the week at lunch hour all the time so you know it's gotta be good!

The fried green tomatoes, corn salad, roast chicken and fried catfish are all favorites. Friendly and attentive wait staff, always ready to refill your iced tea. Food and service always excellent. I guess I could be considered a "regular" since one waitress always remembers my name. The only down side- the dining area could use a thorough cleaning.

We have never had any food that wasn't good at Little Dooey's. The fried catfish and all sandwiches and sides are delicious.

We ate here while passing through Mississippi. I'd never had Mississippi Barbecue with the vinegar sauce. It was delicious.

The Little Dooey is one of my wife's favorite places to eat. Normally we go to the one on 182, but this one happened to be closer to us the other day. The BBQ is not the best BBQ in the world, however, the sauce is what makes it so great. The sides are excellent as well. The service and... More
