Doe's Eat Place or Does not??

  • 7

I have heard of this place with the delightful name for years and years but have not made it there. I can't understand what they can do to a t bone that I can't or any other decent steak house? Is it worth the trip? Thanks

  1. Out of this world. 2nd best steak I've had after Lugers. I'm talking about the one in Greenville, MS. Check out Stern's review on roadfood.

      Been to Luger's many times. Does Doe serve prime, dry-aged beef??

      1. re: steakman55

        Most definitely not. In fact, I am not even entirely sure that they serve prime wet-aged beef. However, when coupled with unique ambiance and the feeling that you're just there for a tasty steak, I can attest that Doe's is the type of place that deserves a visit, prime or not.

    2. Doe's in Greenville, MS is a legend but it's a real joint.......nothing like Peter Lugars. It's in an old wooden shack in the low end of town but there's a security guard out side. Get a large T Bone for two and eat some fried shrimp and tamales before your steak. Don't fill up as the salad and steak is out of the world.

      1. I grew up in Greenville, and for a lot of people the tamales were the big attraction, even more than the steaks.

        1. YES, YES, by all means YES! I'm not a huge tamale fan, but the steak is definitely worth the trip. They pile it high ontop of fries in a cast iron skillet so the fries take on an enbelievable flavor and that really makes it a different experience than most other steak houses.

          1. Doe's is just the coolest experience. You walk in through the kitchen and sit down to a meal of massive proportions. The steak, in my opinion, is not the highest quality beef. It was a little stringy but done correctly to order. The shrimp and tamales were excellent. Take a pocket full of cash and a large appetite, order a Budweiser and all the fixin's, and enjoy.
