People say Jerry’s in Florence is good, but I’ve never been there. My family and I eat at Sal and Phil’s for seafood.

Moss Creek is good and it’s close to most of the hotels off the interstate in Pearl.

Everything mentioned here is acceptable.

Jerry's is best.

There is a Barry's seafood place on 49 before you get to Jerry's You will see a big cross in the front of the parking lot. It is a bit pricy, but good. I would drive another two miles to Jerry's

Moss creek will be close to you and is good.

Cock of the walk is ok too.

There a number of hole in the wall places around, but you have more than you need to find a good place already mentioned.

Oak creek and Cock of the walk have turnips as a side if that is your thing. For 30-40 dollars, Barry's has a huge all you can eat buffet.

The place we go to is Jerry's 90+% of the time.

I started going to Jerry's about 33 years ago when I was in law school in Jackson, and it's still the place I go when I'm in Jackson. Long lines at times, but I love the place.

Yep Jerry’s
If you go on Thursday night you can get fried or boiled chitlins

Moss Creek, if you like the thinly sliced style like Middendorf’s. Have only had it a couple times, but it was better than Middendorf’s, imo.

Fried Chitlins - MMMmmmmmmmmm! This is why we never go to Jerry's on a Thursday.

I was told they change the oil they fry catfish in on Friday's and that is why they only cook Chitlins on Thursday, with the soon to be changed out oil.

Old Dad Joke - My Dad always said, If you are cooking chitlins and company shows up right at mealtime, you drop a piece of corn right beside the chitlins on the platter, then bring the platter to the table. It will make what you cooked go a lot farther.

I am a font of useless information.

Ate the catfish from Frisco Deli. Jerry’s not open for Thursday lunch. The Frisco Deli was packed for good reason. Fast counter service, good value and service. The Catfish and slaw were very good. The fries were fries. I think you can sub out a few other sides. I smelled ribs smoking. The place is in Pearl near the Hampton Inn where I stayed.

Frisco Deli is underrated. I forget about them because they are down in Pearl and I live north of Madison. They do a lot of things well. Catfish and ribs are two of them. The Cajun roast beef sandwich is good too.
