I like CS’s for a what it is—a big gut-bomb burger that requires a postprandial nap. I’m partial to the Joe B

Holy cow is CS's still open?!

Never went there either and it's been there a loooong time. Since the '80s at least -- maybe even the '70s

Here's a name for ya. Anybody remember a place called WC Don's? I went to a concert there c. 1991. It was in the middle of the ghetto then. God only knows what the neighborhood is like now.

Went to WC Don's a few times in the 80s. Don't remember a hell of a lot about the shows, I think it was metal and punk.

Went to Lafleurs and the old Primos a bunch. I've been to the new Primos on Lakeland a couple of times in the last 10 years. Don't know if it is still there, but I like those brownies a lot.
I went to the old Primos on State St -- Meadowbrook? -- a few times. I remember the last time I went, must've been '97-98? I remember I was with some people and we'd been there awhile, late, when a waiter came over and requested that we leave, because it was "a high crime area" and he wanted to go home. A great way to build confidence in your customer base.

I was waiting for some takeout there once when I saw a memo from some Primo, bitching that people were giving the customers too many butter patties.

Old Tyme deli is the place I miss the most. The bread was incredible.
Went there a few times. Is Highland Village still a going concern?

No one's mentioned Cherokee Inn yet...

Went to Bonanza and Western Sizzlin' a few times (there was a WS in Gonzales as recently as 15 years ago. Went there once. The Steak and Shrimp special wasn't bad!)

Never went to S&A -- where was it?
quote:

Went there quite quite a few times as kid

I looked it up a few months ago. There is still one Pasquales within driving distance of BR/Jxn -- in Greenville. Gotta make a pilgrimage there some day...

S & A was on the I-55 frontage road, north of Lakeland Drive., I think. The other joints mentioned, Dennery’s and Primos’s, were wonderful treats for me as a kid, savored, but not enjoyed very often. Mom was a great cook, Dad didn’t care to spend money, and the city was an hour away.

re: Can't Miss in Jackson Ms?
i too will be in Jackson this weekend. I have read the thread and appreciate all of the suggestions... to take it a step further, I have a function at the Jackson Convention Center (E. Pascagoula St. I believe); and will be staying at a Courtyard-Jackson hotel (on Ridgewood Court)... would any of you suggest any of these restaurants that are close to/within easy driving distance to these locations?

(I will do a google search for proximity also, but wanted to ask here for suggestions... TIA)

re: Can't Miss in Jackson Ms?
Parlor market is close to the convention center and great for drinks/food

Cathead distillery is also close to the convention center and is a fun place to check out on the weekend. Do a tour. They sell beer too.

The bulldog is close to where you are staying (next door)

Lots of chains on county line but I wouldn’t go to any of them.

Go a couple miles north to the renaissance and eat at local 463, caet, or Koestler prime.

In Ridgeland:
Shapley’s Steakhouse - next door to hotel
Caets
Eli’s
Hamil’s ( Southern delicious food )
Koestler Steakhouse

Jackson: convention center area is a ghetto, be careful.
Walkers
Babalu
Saltines
Fondren Public - Craft beer

Any of these restaurants will be money well spent.

re: Can't Miss in Jackson Ms?
Headed back to Jackson, MS for the first time since graduation. Wanting to make a date night of it and something fancier than we are used to in Monroe.

So far it's looking like a choice between 1) Walkers, 2) Char, 3) Shapley's, 4) Ticos 5) Ely and 6) Koelster Prime.

Any suggestions on a winner out of these picks? (All seem to be back open with limited seating so I'm trying to make reservations ahead of time)

Any input is appreciated.

All are good.

Ely or Koelster for steak. Walkers for anything else.

re: Can't Miss in Jackson Ms?
Personally I don’t care for Tico’s which I hate to say because Tico is a big LSU fan and great guy. I like Char for lunch but not a nice romantic evening. Drinks at the bar can be fine as there is usually a fun piano player.

I have not been to M&M Shapley’s since they reopened.

You can’t go wrong with Walker’s or Koestler Prime.

Ely’s has great steaks and is usually fantastic. I’ve had slow service several times which would be my only knock.

CAET should also be considered

Ya, we went to Tico's, Shapley's, Ruth Chris, Manship and Char while I was living over there. I loved Tico's atmosphere but it wasn't my top choice as far as the meal went. We met Hoffman up there drinking one night and he was a really nice guy.

Believe it or not Ruth Chris had my favorite meal but they've closed.

I haven't heard of CAET. I'll take a look at it too. Appreciate the info.

I wish the Apothecary was open for a few cocktails after but I think the virus has them shutdown.

Well we ended up getting our reservations at Koestler Prime on Saturday night. Called into Walkers but with the limited seating (COVID) and limited menu items we are saving it for our next trip.

Appreciate the info
