Mississippi Sweets BBQ Co. Restaurant Review

: Mississippi Sweets’ walls bear mementos of old Deep South life through fishing and Mississippi riverboat photos. Down-home food is served in baskets on vinyl tablecloths --- so nothing fancy, but service is fast and friendly. Both baby-back ribs and pulled pork are fine, but it's the sauces, more than the cooking, that makes the 'cue so tasty; zippy traditional is less cloyingly sweet than some, and tangy-sweet light mustard sauce makes a nice alternative. The "sweets" in the place's name, thin slices of deep-fried and garlic-salted sweet potato, curl up when fried into irresistible chips that complement 'cue so well one wonders why they're not classics at every barbecue joint. Baked beans are not only savory, but smoky too. And the one all-Florida original, the house-made Key lime pie, is intensely tart and yellow, as it should be.
