Pigging out in Jackson Mississippi

scrumptiouschef | May 3, 200911:37 AM     38

I LOVE the Deep South.Living in Austin Texas has it's charms but ultimately I miss the charm of southern living-the genteel atmosphere and delicious country cooking are missing out here in the American West.

I'm travelling soon and will be enjoying a couple nice meals in Jackson and need some guidance.

I'm planning on a big southern breakfast:Homemade biscuits,country ham,grits,sausage gravy and fried eggs are a must.Where do I go in the Jackson area for these delicacies?Bad neighborhood?Not a problem.County road/middle of nowhere outside of town?Not a problem.Just tell me where the best is and I'm there.

My next meal will be[hopefully]something I can only get in Jackson.I'm thinking soul food or Fried Catfish,two of my favorite foods of all time.I have a particular love of old restaurants.Any ancient diners or soulfood havens that've been there since the dawn of time y'all can tell me about?Small homey places that seat a minimum amount of diners will always win out over big restaurants.

I've done some research and these are the names that keep popping up:

Jerry's Catfish House

Abner's

Bo Don's

Big Apple Inn

Pavoni's

Hal and Mal's

The Mayflower

Peaches

Walker's

Keifers

Crechales

Stamps

Collins Dream Kitchen
