Heading Back to Texas

 I guess all good trips must come to an end so it is time for me to head back to Texas.  No need to rush though.  This is going to be a great road trip; my son Steve is going to be traveling with me and he is the world's best traveling companion.  Time for a rest break?

If you have ever been in this part of the country, you may have heard of The Shed restaurant.  The original Shed is in Ocean Springs, MS just off I-10 at exit 57.  You can't see it from the road but it's there 1000 yards north.


"The Shed’s not a fancy restaurant, as a matter of fact, it’s not a restaurant at all….it’s a full fledged JOINT….The Shed is an Experience, a Destination to enjoy! ShedHeds bring their families, sit around the bonfires, hug their kids, and eat the best darn BBQ on the bayou. (Of course… it’s the only BBQ on the Bayou). On Friday and Saturday nights the sounds of live Blues radiate from the stage bringing with it the essence of old school, down-home southern, tacky charm.
The Original Shed is located in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Within the last two years The Shed has not only grown in size but there are now five other Sheds in the Southeast covering a five state area from Louisiana to Florida.    No cookie cutter franchise going on at The Shed!  No two Shed’s are alike.  They all have their own personality though keeping the ambiance of the Original Shed while masterfully keeping the quality and quantity of their nationally award winning Shed food."  Read more about the Shed story.


This is a unique place and the food is good. The Shed has been featured on Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" and Food Network Challenge "Bama Que" as well as Southern Living Magazine.

Right next to The Shed is Camp Journey's End RV Park & Campground just in case you want to spend the night.  It's not exactly inexpensive but looks nice and the staff was very friendly when I stopped in.  There are music events next door so it's a good place to park and join the fun.

We ate an early dinner and headed on down the road to New Orleans for our first night's stop.
