If you get a chance Saturday morning visit the Biscuit Shop.  It's a new place that just does biscuits but it is very popular and she usually sells out early especially on game day.

http://www.thebiscuitlady.com/

Old Venice Pizza Company  http://www.oldvenice.com/
Starkville Caf
Oby's https://www.obys.net/index.php
Little Dooeys http://littledooey.com/website2/  This is the place all the ESPN guys like and is very good.
Harvey's http://eatwithharveys.com/
Dave's Dark Horse Tavern great hole in the wall type place  http://www.davesdarkhorse.com/index-2.php
Rosey Baby http://www.roseybaby.com/ good Cajun
The Veranda http://verandastarkville.com/
Mugshots http://www.mugshotsgrillandbar.com/  good bar food
Cowbells Sports Grill  http://www.cowbellsmsu.com/index.htm
Stagger In  http://staggeringrill.com/

Starkville is fine.  As one of the posters said Its easy to have a good time there, and 10x less pretentious than Oxford.

I'd like to know the S holes that some of the people bashing Starkville live in because if it's in Arkansas and anywhere except NWA, pot meet kettle.

As you're crossing the great Mississippi River bridge, stop and take some pictures of the scenic view.  Next, proceed to jump off said bridge, but make sure you're closer to the Arkansas side so you can die in the greatest gotdamn state in the U.S.  I've found this is the most beautiful/entertaining thing you can do anywhere near Mississippi.

From "ATotal360": The Regal Inn is probably the best bang for your buck in terms of places to stay. Polliwogs is where the cool people hang out.

From "dawgstudent" (owner of SixPackSpeak.com): Restaurants/Bar - Veranda, Old Venice, Restaurant Tyler, Mugshots, Dawghouse, Stagger Inn, The Grill and just go walk around the Cotton District.

From "Seshomoru": Daves Dark Horse (next to The Regal Inn. Sesh also recommends avoiding The Regal Inn, as well.)

Also from Sesh: For your beer drinking buddies...  we have quite a few local brews in the State now. Have them on the lookout for Lucky Town, Crooked Letter, Southern Prohibition and a few others that escape me at the moment. Lazy Mag as well but they can probably buy that in Arkansas now. They should be on tap at most of the places listed. Get a bbq sandwich from Petty's.

From "Col. Forbin": Two Brothers in the Cotton District is also very good. Small place but very good.

More as I get them.

Unlike several on here that hold pompous and condescening opinions of various places in this country that the Hogs visit, Starkville is a great little college town that is full of really great folks and have a strong sense of southern hospitality.

Is it a bucket list destination? No, but I have no disparaging comments to make about the community or MSU and the 2 times I've been there I didn't go in with any unattainable expectations and the trip for the ballgame was fun.

 Yes, the cowbells are annoying as hell but I find the Boomer Sooner Fight song annoying  moreso than the "Eyes of Texas", so it all balances out.

Mississippi being what it is, I'll just say it seems like a  long damn drive going east on US 82 just to get into Starkville but once there you have no stress of getting lost or misplaced. If you do, some one will be gracious in getting you back on the beaten path.

Go, enjoy and go down without any preconceived bias and you'll have a great time for the purpose of your trip; the game between the Hogs and Dogs. (Even w/ those darned cowbells)

I've never understood why people in the South always think this stereotype applies to people of the OTHER state, but not them.

Mythical +1 Golfn on everything.  82 is a long damn drive especially if you start out in Central or NW Arkansas.  I have made the trip plenty of times and there is a lot of nowhere on both sides of the border.

There are a some good tamale places along the way.  Hot Tamale Heave is a little drive through right on US 82 in Greenville.  Try the fried tamales.

We've been several times. Starkville has changed a bunch since the Jackie Sherrill days. In all seriousness, you have to give them props for the environment they've created. The last time we went was in 2010 and it was also a night game. The cowbells will be deafening and the jumbo tron will be non stop noise/music. The fans can get a little rowdy, but for the most part, they're pretty good. As far as eating, somebody may have mentioned it, or will shortly, but there is a great little pizza/pasta joint in town, Stromboli's, On University Dr., not to far from the stadium.

Have fun and enjoy! As someone mentioned, just to be safe, take all your Razorback signage off your vehicle when you park. Better safe than sorry.

Additional recommendations...

From "WalkTheDawg":
* For BBQ there is the Lil Dooey. It's the one Kirk Herbstreit keeps talking about. Be prepare to park alongside or to the rear.
* Restaurant Tyler has some of the best food in the area.
* Mugshots for a good burger. Technically a chain but are only a few in the state.
* The Veranda is damn near on campus. Got steaks and etc
* The Grill on Maxwell st. Try the fried cheese sticks.
* The Dawghouse Grill on Main. New place. Largest of all above.
* Bin 612 on University. It's in the Cotton District.
* Several walk in and out places are in the Cotton District.
* Stromboli's on University. Pizza and other Italian themed.
All are searchable on Internet. Also look for places in Cotton district online.

People are recommending Dave's... but to sit close to the door. :)

Was at that game too.  It was loud as hell.  Great college football game and atmosphere all around especially since we won.  It's not just the cowbells though.  Their fans are loud and bring it the entire game.

Having a child attend MSU will change one's perspective of Starkville.  Before our oldest took her college visit there while she was still in high school, I had some of the same preconceived notions that most Hogvillians have of the town.  But after spending quite a bit of time there the past 4 years (yes, we may go to an MSU game when the Hogs have an open date), I've come to like the place.  As Dwight has said multiple times the past couple of weeks, it's a great college town with no pretentions.

Admittedly, it's the same stereotype that other people have about Fayetteville.  Everyone assumes that it is "Walmartville", trailers, and hicks.

I have step-kids at both MSU and Arkansas.  Fayetteville holds the edge of being in a prettier part of the country and the surrounding area has more to offer in accommodations, but as far as dining and student life go; they are pretty much the same.

This is fact! In 2010, they were a mid level SEC team, and like you say, the fans brought it all game long. Being #1, I would imagine that the fans and atmosphere are doing their part......it should be crazy loud/intense!

My wife and I have been to a game there, wearing our Hog garb from head to toe.  Other than the annoying cowbells we enjoyed the trip.  No one was rude or confrontational toward us even after we won.  On the other hand, we didn't taunt anyone or do a lot of excessive celebrating in front of MSU fans.

Park down by the baseball stadium and catch the shuttle. Lets you out at the north end of the stadium at the Broyles Complex parking lot most commonly referred to as the pit. Short walk from there. Call the foundation office at 479-443-9000 or ticket office at 479-575-5152 and ask parking and shuttle information.

Heading to The Hill this weekend for my first home game since I left Arkansas seven years ago...I apologize in advance for having to ask, but what's the public parking situation these days? Wheres the best place for someone without a parking pass to park and tailgate?
