Default searching for a BBQ place

Hi, I'm hoping you can help me. I am from Minnesota and about a year ago I was traveling through Mississippi. We stopped for gas around Collins and I believe it was on Hwy 49. Across the road from the gas station was an outdoor barbeque type place. It had picnic tables and an outdoor stage with a reggae type painting on the backdrop of the stage (I think!?!). It seemed like a sort of a biker place as there were quite a few motorcycles parked in the lot. Very rustic, really fun place. The food was fantastic. I will be passing through again this summer and wanted to take my sister and her family there. I am not completely sure of the location but the only receipt I can find for gas in Mississippi is at an Exxon in Collins so I think that must be the place. Does this ring a bell with anyone? I have tried everything I can think of to find this place. Tried calling the Exxon but no answer. Called the Chamber of Commerce but she was no help. I'm stuck and would appreciate any help I can get. Thanks!

Ward's Restaurant or the Covington House -- does that ring a bell? Try looking at "restaurant near collins, ms" on google maps. Will give you all you need to know if its still there.
