Jack's Southern Comfort on Lower Greenville (in the old Ali Baba space) is a wonderful addition to the area. The food -- in both taste and portion size -- is better than Sissy's. It's like a more-casual Hattie's. The Texasian salad is delicious. The Upside-Down Chicken Pot Pie (essentially pot pie filling poured over a home made biscuit) was an obvious favorite. The owners are originally from Louisiana, and the influence shows -- crawfish mac 'n cheese, gumbo,. etc. Lots of staples, done up right -- fried chicken, brisket chili, catfish, collard greens, fried green tomoatoes, deviled eggs, and lots and lots of pies.
The place is small, so we had to wait for a table. They don't have a liquor license yet, so you can BYOB -- and they were serving complimentary watermellon sangria. The staff was friendly and attentive. And the prices are very reasonable.
