Although Mississippi might be better known for its barbecue than for its steak, Doe's Eat Place is justifiably famous.  Our steaks are cut fresh daily from whole beef loins. Our steaks are cut 2 inches thick, and each loin is aged at least 21 days to bring out all the flavor a fine cut of beef has to offer.  After our grill-master places your steak on the 1000-degree plus broiler, please allow time for our staff to prepare one of the great steaks of the South with a hefty, deeply flavorful crust.  In 2007, the James Beard Foundation named Doe's Eat Place as one of "America's Classics"; Men's Journal claims their porterhouse is "the best thing to eat in America.


This is where it all began. In the 1930s, the restaurant’s founder, Dominick “Doe” Signa, was working at the Greenville Air Base, where he acquired a recipe for hot tamales from an unnamed co-worker. Doe left the air base in 1941 to take over his father’s 1903 vintage grocery store. He soon began selling hot tamales to the neighborhood’s largely black clientele. Word spread and the white community came calling for Doe’s tamales.  For generations, tamale cravings have been satisfied by coffee cans filled with hot tamales passing out those doors. We make our all beef tamales from Doe's original recipe. Made the same way since 1941, they are a true taste of the Mississippi Delta.
