Ms. Hyster's Restaurant Review

: You may think you have had the full Southern barbecue treatment elsewhere, but Ms. Hyster’s is an “only in New Orleans” food experience. How they offer such big portions for such low prices is anybody’s guess. Primarily a take-out barbecue joint, the place draws Mississippi transplants craving hickory-smoked pork spare ribs (rosy all the way through), delicately peppered mustard greens, sweet cornbread and old-fashioned pound cake. You never know what the cooks won't get around to making, so keep an open mind. Fortunately, everything --- from black-eyed peas to baked macaroni to barbecued chicken --- is down-home good. Proprietor Virginia Johnson (the late Ms. Hyster's granddaughter) loves gospel music so much she sells it out of cases lining one of the restaurant's walls.
