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
Big Apple Inn
Hal and Mal's
Collins Dream Kitchen
