Restaurants in Tupelo bring plenty to the table, with a variety of cuisine choices for residents and visitors.

Casual Dining

It's hard to go wrong at a restaurant owned by the locally based Eat With Us Group, whose portfolio includes casual dining spots such as Harvey's, the Cotton District Grill, the Jackson Square Grill, Fairpark Grill, Bulldog Deli and Sweet Peppers Deli.  Other casual dining favorites in Tupelo include Park Heights and South, which specializes in soulfully prepared Southern food. Longhorn Steakhouse is another popular choice.

International Influences

D’Casa Mexican Restaurant & Grill now has three locations, on West Main, South Gloster and in the Mall at Barnes Crossing. Besides great food, D'Casa has drink specials every day. Other hotspots with international flair include Nautical Whimsey Italian Bistro & Wine Bar and Mist Asian Restaurant & Bar. Also try the many pizza choices at Vanelli's Greek & Italian Restaurant, The Lost Pizza Co. and Old Venice Pizza Company.

Lunch Only

Ms. Ruth's Diner in Verona is only open for lunch on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, serving everything from casseroles to sandwiches to homemade desserts. Other top lunchtime destinations include Cafe 212 and Sweet Tea & Biscuits Cafe, where fresh BLT sandwiches are served on sourdough bread.

Grab and Go

Call in your order and pick up a Cobb salad and an oven-roasted turkey sandwich at Newk's Express Cafe, or get a down-home catfish plate lunch at Papa V's Deli. Other good quick-meal spots include Atlanta Bread Co. and Sweet Peppers Deli (sample the Cajun shrimp potatoes).


Have a sweet tooth? You'll have no trouble being satisfied in Tupelo at places like Creative Cakes & Supplies, Endville Bakery, Yummy Yogurt, Gigi's Cupcakes, Mary McGuire's Cakes & Confections, Rosie's Cookies, Sweet Treats Bakery, and Unique Treets Cheesecakes & Candies. And at Simply Sweet by Margarete, give the bacon bread a try.
