The Little Dooey...
Fun is a family recipe.
Originating in Starkville, Mississippi, The Little Dooey™ has become
the most popular barbeque destination in the region, attracting regular,
local diners and guests from all over the country. The menu was created
around the time-honored recipes and sauces of the founders, Barry and
Margaret Ann Wood. The name for the restaurant is also a Wood Family
tradition where “a little dooey” means a fun gathering of friends and
The Wood’s began The Little Dooey™ in 1985, by serving their homemade barbeque and sauce at a local service station. The response from customers was overwhelming, and soon the growing local demand for their delicious food prompted them to open the first restaurant in Starkville which became an instant success. The Wood’s credit their accomplishments to their family, friends and dedicated staff who set The Little Dooey™ apart, making it a comfortable and fun place to eat.
After 20 years of serving great barbeque, the idea to franchise The Little Dooey™ on a national basis has become a reality. LDQ, LLC has developed a franchise program for The Little Dooey Barbeque & Blues™, which adds a new twist to the original concept by adding an upscale atmosphere and décor package and introducing a Blues music entertainment theme.
