Drive In. Chow Down.

Ready for a delicious road trip? All across Mississippi, you’ll find mouthwatering temptations at colorful roadside food stands, locally owned drive-ins, and even gas stations that serve up everything from seafood po-boys to smoked ribs. Many of our restaurants, hotels and attractions accommodate pets, so grab that leash and bring your best friend, too!

Pig, Pints & Pets

A staple of the culinary scene in Jackson’s fun and funky Fondren district, The Pig & Pint’s name advertises what it does so well—slow-smoked pork and brisket chased by one (or more) of the many craft beers on the menu. The restaurant is casual and pet-friendly on their outdoor patio. So bring your pup and enjoy some of Mississippi’s most mouthwatering flavors.

Timeless Treats

Look for Edd’s the next time you’re in Coastal Mississippi for the classic drive-in experience. Edd’s history goes back to 1953 with the opening of their first restaurant in Pascagoula. Over the years, they’ve built a following for their delicious chili cheeseburgers, hot dogs and real milkshakes. In 2012, they opened their second location in Wade – it’s just about 20 minutes from Moss Point and well worth the drive.

Rack Up

If you’re driving down the road and you see a smoker working overtime in front of a gas station, you know it’s time to stop. If you’re lucky enough to be at Rib Daddy’s BBQ, you know what to order, too. Their best-selling rib plate comes with a half-slab of pork ribs, two sides and a slice of white bread. Smoked or fried chicken, turkey legs, sausage, and fried fish are available, too, if you must. Rib Daddy’s has three locations – Jackson, Canton and Carthage.

Chix & Stix

There are numerous fine-dining establishments in Oxford, but sometimes only chicken on a stick will do – especially after hours when traditional restaurants are closed. The 4 Corners Chevron claims to have the “World’s Most Famous Chicken on a Stick.” While there are certainly others who might challenge that notion, the 4 Corners definitely has its fare share of fans. They’ve even been featured on The Travel Channel and twice in Bon Appétit magazine, and that’s more than good enough for us.
