The Plate: Half BBQ Chicken

The Place: Mississippi Sweets BBQ Company, 2399 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton; 561-394-6779 or www.mississippisweetsbbq.com.

The Price: $11.50

The Skinny: I’d been to Mississippi Sweets’ location in western Lake Worth/Wellington eons ago and had enjoyed it.
I’m glad I finally checked out the restaurant’s Boca Raton location, if for no other reason than it proves there’s great, affordable fare in Boca.

This barbecued chicken half was moist and tender, with just the right smokiness. I liked the fact that the smoker had burnished the skin of the chicken to a rich mahogany. The crew finished the chicken on the grill, leaving a tasty bit of char. It was served with a sweet, tangy sauce. Baked beans served on the side were hearty and warm, and the waffle fries, dubbed “tractor treads,” were crispy on the outside and fluffy inside.

The Tupelo Chicken sandwich ($8.79) also was a hit, with a chargrilled chicken breast served with onions, mushrooms and Monterey Jack cheese.

  • The fries bear a remarkable resemblance to those offered at that bastion of culinary excellence, Chick-fil-a.  N’est-ce pas?
