Love this place on the side of the road. Every time I have guests come through Hattiesburg I bring them here.

I've driven past numerous times but it was always after business hours. Not today! We stopped in and loved it. At first I thought my burger may not be filling enough due to it only being a 6 ounce patty but I was proven wrong. You can tell that the meat is fresh and the patties are hand formed. Their fries are great also. My girlfriend opted for a salad which was also really good. We didn't have time to check out their merchandise because we were pressed for time to get somewhere but we definitely plan to come back soon and bring family members with us. My only complaint? The restaurant is too far from our home =)
We just HAD to stop on our way back to Jackson from Hattiesburg on Highway 49! It looked so interesting and it WAS lunchtime... The advertising of Best BBQ helped to turn the wheel and put on the brakes in their spacious parking lot. It did not disappoint. I had the will power to not buy any one of the beautiful cakes they had for sale in the "store area" but I did come away with peaches in jars and homemade blueberry jam! The meal was my meal for the day with generous helpings of Everything... I even took a pic of the crawfish tray with corn on the cob. This is a really FUN place with outdoor picnic seating as well as air-conditioned comfort inside. A Must Stop...
Thank you. Glad you stopped in and enjoyed your visit. We sure hope you can stop in again soon.
I had heard so many great things about this place, that my husband and I drove 2 hours to come check it out. Just as we heard, it was well worth the trip. The smoked chicken was so tender, veggies cooked like grandma does. Lemon pie was smooth, not tart, just right. Purchased a maidenhair fern I had been looking for....needless to say we left full and happy. Will definitely be back.
Thank you for coming to visit us. So glad you enjoyed everything. Hope to see you again soon.
Several years ago Shady Acres burned down, so I'm happy that they are back and thriving. Lots to see there. Their dining spaces include inside, screened porch or fresh air with out screens. We ordered the hamburger poor boy and it comes with cheese, lettuce, tomato and pickles all for $7.99. It was actually two burgers. We shared it and had plenty. We added the homemade potato chips and they were crisp and fresh. Service was good and although we missed the lunch rush between 11-2 where they serve plate lunches we still had a hot cooked meal. Bought some fresh veggies and their nursery is rapidly filling out. Spring is here in Mississippi.
Thank you for sharing your experience here. We appreciate you shopping and dining with us. Hope you can come back soon.
