Doe's Eat Place was established in 1941 by Dominick Doe Signa and his wife Mamie. Doe's Father moved to Greenville in 1903 and opened a grocery store in the building that now serves as the restaurant. The family lived in a house behind the store. The grocery which the Signa Family called Papa's Store did well until the 1927 flood. After that, Big Doe Signa went into bootlegging to help the family get back on its feet. After several years he sold his 40 barrel still for $300.00 and a Model T Ford. Around 1941 Mamie received a partial recipe for hot tamales. She improved the recipe and began selling them. That was the beginning of Doe's.
AWESOME!!! I've been all over the country and have eaten a lot of beef, this has got to be one of the best in the country. The best part is you order by the pound, how awesome is that, a carnivore's wet dream. Another cool thing about this place is that they serve tamales, which is fairly common for restaurants from the delta. They are fairly spicey, but delicious.
I'm from Iowa.... I know my steak. THIS is good steak! You won't find it any better then here! Thick steak, aged to perfection. While you would be hard pressed to find a better steak anywhere, the side dishes do leave a bit to be desired in choices.
