Doe's Eat Place

502 Nelson, Greenville, MS - (662) 334-3315
Posted By Alex Pavin on 12/7/2008 7:52:00 PM
As someone who has visited Greenville many times on business over the last thirty years I have had the opportunity to eat at Doe's on a number of occasions. This is one place that never fails to delight. The steaks served here rival anything you will eat in Chicago or New York (I live in Chicago and visit top steak houses regularly). The only problem you will have is finishing one, because they are large.

It is a real kick to walk through the kitchen to get to your table (it's the only way in) and see the steaks being prepared and the salads being tossed (there is only one choice of dressing, the one they are tossing it in: oil and vinegar). The fries are fabulous, just like your mom probably made in a frying pan when you were a kid, and they are the only potato available. To stay in the spirit of things you absolutely have to start your meal with one of their hot tamales, which seems to be out of place in Mississippi but is the local appetizer of choice.

Once you eat at Does you will never forget the experience, and I guarantee you will spend a lot of time figuring out how you will justify returning to Greenville so you can eat there again.

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

Decor at Doe's! This old taxidermized bird was hovering above our table. That's cotton spilling out of splits in its noggin'.

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.
