Doe's Eat Place

502 Nelson, Greenville, MS - (662) 334-3315
Located on the wrong side of town in the back rooms of a dilapidated grocery store, Doe's does not look like a restaurant, much less a great restaurant. Many of the dining tables are in fact located in the kitchen, spread helter-skelter among stoves and counters where the staff dresses salads and fries potatoes in big iron skillets. Nevertheless, the steaks are some of the best you will eat anywhere.

Hot from the skillet, French fries are tossed onto a grate next to the stove in the middle of Doe's dining room.

For those dining by themselves, or with smaller appetites, Doe's offers the 10-ounce filet.

Served in a sauce made with lemon, butter, garlic, and Cajun spices, broiled shrimp are an excellent way to start your meal.

Nelson Street, where Doe's is located, once was known as the bad part of town. Now, it's a culinary destination. The man standing behind the pickup truck is Doe's private security guard. Note the six-gun on his hip.
