Dontea's Seafood and BBQ Grand Opening

November 14, 2017

“I’m just so proud of this man," said Mayor Percy Bland.  "That you are the first business, that has established a new business in this historic African American district, that it makes my heart feel good.”

 

 

 

The EMBDC held a ribbon cutting ceremony, for Dontea's seafood and BBQ, in down town meridian. 

 

“Today everyone came out for my grand opening ceremony.  We did a ribbon cutting with the EMBDC," says Dontea Cross the owner of Dontea's Seafood and BBQ.  And with a history of serving the community across Lauderdale County, he is excited to be located, in downtown Meridian.

 

“I just started cooking back when I was young.  My father was a cook.  And watching him cook on the grill every day, it kind of inspired me to keep the family thing going.”

 

Whether it’s fish, chicken, steaks, seafood, or even BBQ.  They have an exquisite atmosphere inside and out, that’s accommodating to everyone.

 

“You can come and enjoy the atmosphere.  Upstairs, downstairs, we have one of the nicest patios in town.  We have one of the nicest multipurpose rooms in town.  We want to give one of the nicest experiences in town.  A real homely feel.”  And it’s a family tradition, that works to serve the best bbq in Meridian.
