Several Hattiesburg spots named "Best of Mississippi"

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Mississippi Magazine released its annual "Best of Mississippi" list, and several Hattiesburg spots took home a title.

Jody's Bakery was named Best Sweet Shop/Bakery, and owner Joanna "Jody" Lopez, said it is always an honor to receive such a title, voted on my patrons.

"We're just tickled to death to be named the best bakery," said Lopez. "That's something that I hope our customers in Hattiesburg have known for a long, long time."

The Best Outdoor Dining award went to Patio 44, which just opened its doors fall of 2013.

"We've got our fresh herb garden and the fountain, the flame that comes out of the top of the fountain, and it just sets a different ambience," said Patio 44 executive chef Josh Rogers about the restaurant's atmosphere.

Leatha's Bar-B-Que was named Best Barbeque in the state, and even though it's not the first time they've received the title, they are still thankful.

"We thank God for it," said Carolyn Stepney. "We try to treat you like you family."

Other top winners were: Georgia Blue, Best Blue Plate Special; Mack's on the River, Best Catfish; Confetti Kids, Best Children's Clothing; Mugshots Grill and Bar, Best Hamburger; Lights Jewelers, Best New Jewelry; Aunt Linda's, Best Pet Salon/Shop; Hairworx, Best Salon.
