As a vegetarian on a scale of 10 being great and 1 being horrible. I'd give it a 6. It was good food but the cornbread has NO flavor just tasted like baked cornmeal. The greens had enormous pieces of ham in them so I could try them and there was no alternative. The corn was basic as were the... More

My reviews usually reflect a certain Corp de spirit but I drag my feet on this one. I thought we could Google this but we were taken to a closed location. Strike one, business owners who fail to take it upon themselves to check their online presence are shooting themselves in the foot and possibly losing customers in the process.... More

The best catfish I have ever had. Two huge fillets that were seasoned and fried perfectly. Excellent sweet potatoes and green beans. The friendly staff greet customers at the door and walk you through until you are seated with your food. Every staff member was friendly and goes out of their way to make you feel at home. My wife...

Cat fish was O K. With that I got three sides. Black eyed pies had auger added, I prefer the more savory. Cabbage had sugar added, it didn't need it. The green beans were good. You pay for refills after spending $18 per plate. You can get better for $18!

Four of us went here to try the "other" Sweetie Pies. We waited over 30 minutes to order our food, and they were out of most meats. I was going to let them eat there and I was going to eat elsewhere. After waiting so long, we decided to stay. BAD DECISION!!!! We all had the chicken wing dinner. The... More

I watched many episodes of the show and decided that I would try the restaurant the next time I traveled to St. Louis. Someone advised me that the food wasn't that great but I wanted to try for myself. I'm sorry that I wasted my money. Besides the place looking like a "hole in the wall", the prices were high...

My 11 year old daughter is a big fan of Ms. Robbie and the show. As soon as the show starting airing, she told me "Mommy, that food looks so good, I wanna visit there." We are from Arkansas but live in Mississippi now and know good soul food. So, when we heard that Sweetie Pies would be opening in... More

We arrived an hour early because we had some time to waste, although arriving 20 to 30 minutes early should suffice. It was a Sunday of Memorial Day weekend and it went at opening, they're schedules to open at 11:30 AM but they opened about 15 minutes late. Once we were inside, it was difficult to decide what to get... More

First, let me start by saying, normally AA are very understanding & accepting of the substandard- be it surroundings, decor, service, accommodations or respect. Being that this is an establishment owned by a byproduct of the turbulent 60s, I was hoping for sooo much more. The waitresses have univiting faces, act as if you're a bother & are aware of... More

I want to say all good things about this place but i can not lie. The food was a disappointment my mom had been begging me to take her to this place and when we finally get there it burst her bubble ..the service was great but the food was bland. My mother called it cafeteria food at best. Although... More
