  1. Have you heard about the burgers at Blue Rooster in Hattiesburg? I haven't tried them, but read a review somewhere and they sounded pretty good. I have tried the plate lunch and it was tasty...

    The best ribs are found in gas stations- the Exxon on N'side Drive and I-55, that gas station in Clinton, etc. Also had some pretty decent ribs at Pigskin on 51 once, but it has been a while since I've tried them...

    1. Whatever the name is now of Stamps' Superburgers - those are **so** good. If I remember correctly, there was some kind of family dispute and they had to change the name.

      They make everything fresh to order (including handcutting the potatoes into fries only after you order) so it all takes about 15 minutes but is really worth it. My favorite hamburger in MS.

        Yeah, Al from "Cool Al's" and "Burgers and Blues" is the son of the Stamps folks. All the burgers are great from any of the places, but I always get a kick out of the fact that Al is a vegetarian!

      2. For burgers try:

        The Cherokee Inn (a messy, but good burger in a dive)
        Char (most upscale)
        The Farmer's Market Grill (best deal)
        Brent's Drugs (throw back diner)

        Would second the Cool Al's mention and throw in Cs's but I haven't been there yet, just heard about it.

        1. Best cheap burgers are actually at Keifer's downtown and Beatty Street Grocery. Best gourmet burgers are Parlor Market and Char, with Majestic Burger being my favorite middle-of-the-road.

            Trace Grill has really good burgers- the bacon cheese burger on a jalapeno cheese bun is killer! Never tried the ribs although they look really good...
