Massive amount of food for cheap. The one on North Hill Street has outside seating only; while the other one is actually indoors with more extensive menu (as of 2007 only the indoor one has fried Okra). I usually go to the North Hill Street location.
Favorite Dish: I prefer the pulled pork--just be sure to order extra sauce on the side because you'll probably run out of sauce before the pork. The banana bread pudding is to die for, and their sweet tea is just right. I don't care much for their ribs, though, even though I am huge fan of ribs.
Finding Thai food living in Meridian in itself is pretty special. Owners Joe and Gina, both Thai, put a lot of work into the restaurant--it's their labor of love. Great deals on lunch specials. The restaurant closes early (7:00PM during the week), at least as of 2007, so do plan ahead. If the restaurant isn't too busy, they will gladly make off-menu items if you ask them.
Jean's Restaurant in downtown Meridian. This is a must for afternoon lunch. The perfect place to experience southern cooking at its most. Pricing is very reasonable and portions are plenty.
Friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
Favorite Dish: anything and everything. down home southern cooking
