History of Romies:

On May 16, 2005, we opened the doors to Romie’s Grocery, serving lunch 6 days a week. Folks really seemed to love our “meat and 3” plate lunches with such a variety of meats and vegetables to choose from daily. I mean, folks like Gov. Hailey Barbour, Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant, Roger Wicker, Travis Childers, Miranda Lambert, Marty Stewart, Daryl Waltrip and all our local celebs and regulars. Providing every guest with the best Southern Cuisine and Southern Hospitality is and always will be our mission. Romie’s Grocery is the place to be for lunch in Tupelo.

Rob started a catering business years before Romie’s, so he already had a reputation for amazing high quality food. Rob Lesley/Romie’s Grocery catering quickly grew. We specialize in on-site frying, grilling, and smoking. We can feed 10 to 10,000 people making us the largest catering company around. We added trailers and equipment to accommodate the demand for on-site cooking. Our full-service catering company works closely with each customer to plan events, design specialty menus, create fabulous presentations of food and stations and take care of details throughout. Wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, showers, engagement parties, corporate functions, family reunions, brunch and more – we can handle it. Let us take the worry out of your event. Call us today to set up an appointment or e-mail details to romiesgrocery@bellsouth.net . Romie’s Grocery is the place to call for all catering needs.

In February of 2007 we added a dinner menu. Once folks learned that we had a completely different menu to offer our guests at night with fantastic steaks, chicken, chops, fresh seafood, a little bar area and great service – Romie’s Grocery became the place to be for dinner in Tupelo. We lower the lights, turn on great blues music and create an exciting dining experience. Bring your kids or meet your friends for food and a fun in a relaxing atmosphere. We added a patio for outdoor dining, live music every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, a weekly specials menu for dinner, an easy-to-remember phone number (841- TOGO), a TO GO parking place for quick pick-ups and made the necessary changes to make things flow well from management to the kitchen to the front of the house to our much appreciated customers. We want our guests to feel like family when you walk in the doors. We look forward to see y’all!!
