Need to eat well in Starkville, MS

If there's anyone out there who can help with a suggestion, it'd be much appreciated. I'm here until Friday!

  1. I don't know if I'd call it "well" but I really liked Little Dooey. Believe it or not, I did not have the bbq there, but the catfish. I was hosting a workshop at the university and ate after everyone else was done. I don't know how they did it, but that catfish sat there for hours and it was still delicious and crispy. I had heard good things about Stromboli while there, but didn't get around to trying it.

    Have a great week.

    1. Try The Veranda. Hands down the best place in Starkville. Anthony's in West Point is good as well. For pizza hit Dave's Dark Hose Tavern.

        Is there still a place called "Rosey Baby's" in Starkville? And, if so, is it still any good? We were there years ago and got in to town.vrey late. The desk clerk sent us to Rosey Baby's and we had a blast. The food was good. The atmosphere--actually just the people--were fun. It was so long ago the place is probably no longer there but I have some fond memories of both nights--we enjoyed the first night so much we returned the next.

          I ate there tonight, and it is the best place I've been so far! Thanks.
