The Shed Barbeque & Blues Joint, 7501 Hwy 57, Ocean Springs, MS. Two more locations: Gulfport, MS and Mobile, AL.
A pleasant surprise on the first day of my 6 week road trip, the stars aligned for me to have lunch at The Shed in Ocean Springs. A tasty treat awaits right off of I-10, Exit 57 in Mississippi!
My first impression ….what the heck is this crazy place?! It wasn’t your typical BBQ joint, nor was it a typical day. You see, the Food Network had production going on shooting the promos for their new show, “The Shed” featuring the family and sidekicks. Do to production, customers had to eat outdoors. It was a hot day and buggy, but not terrible.
I ordered the Shed combo, 2 meats (pulled pork and ribs), 2 sides (beans and sweet potato casserole), 2 bread. It arrived on a stainless steel divided tray, reminiscent of a school cafeteria…or a prison. Ha! Very cool idea, nonetheless.
The baby back ribs were good eats, but the pulled pork was the star! Smokey, tender, saucy yumminess. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of their side choices. The baked beans were rich and hearty and the sweet potato casserole was so delicious, almost like dessert, I wanted more. Awesome meal, deserving of a happy dance!
The staff, owners/family are all on-point, kind and welcoming. The restaurant and property are entertaining in itself. I look forward to returning, next time I’m on I-10.
As seen on the Food Network, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, and the Travel Channel, Man vs Food Nation.
Hours: Sun-Thurs 11am-9pm, Fri-Sat 11am-10pm. On-site parking.
Catch some good BBQ and a show. A whole wing-ding! 🙂
