The Cafeteria-Style Restaurant With Some Of The Best Home-Cooked Food In Mississippi
While many of the best buffets in Mississippi are tucked inside of casinos, there’s one special restaurant in Hattiesburg that’s serving up some of the best home-cooked meals in the state, and they’re worthy of a road trip from any corner of the state. Just be sure to come hungry, as you’re going to want a little bit of everything on your plate!
If you ask anyone in Hattiesburg where to grab a hearty meal, they’ll tell you to head over to the Movie Star Restaurant.
The sheer size of the restaurant should give you a good indication that you’re in the right spot.
The family-owned business got its name from the original building it was in--the old Movie Star lingerie factory building. Although they eventually built a new building, the name stuck!
The unique restaurant is a bit of an antique store, too.
Everywhere you look you’ll see amazing relics from the past, all things the owners have collected over the years. If you see a piece that strikes your fancy, ask about it! You might just walk out with a new treasure to add to your collection.
Once you’ve checked out the antiques and found yourself a table, step on up to the buffet.
Everything on the line is made from family recipes, and we all know deep-south southern family recipes are uniquely incredible.
Be sure to put some of the famous fried chicken on your plate. It’s some of the best fried chicken in Hattiesburg!
After stuffing yourself full of homemade classics, indulge in some of the homemade desserts.
You’ll need a coffee and a bit of sugar to escape that inevitable food coma!

While you’re in the area, go ahead and make a day out of it! A visit to the
