Above average milk shake

The burgers here are average. However, my visit was definitely great because of the milk shake. I had a cookies and cream shake and it did not disappoint. The huge straw makes it easy to get the chunks of cookies. The restaurants atmosphere is great. It has an old school feel.

Stopped here for lunch alone on my way out of town. Very cute diner with a very friendly staff. I was eating alone and enjoyed myself. My waitress checked up on me several times and recommended the burger. It wasn't the greatest, but I was there more for the atmosphere than gourmet food. The onion rings, however, were good and...

I often travel for both business and pleasure and unfortunately I also suffer for HBP. I have tried to find liquid coricidin in GA, TX, AL, and FL. This is the only location where they had this particular medication. Now let me say I realize that I can order this medication from online vendors; however, it is a hassle to... More

Brent's used to be my very favorite breakfast spot in Jackson. Since I have moved to Fondren I have tried to eat there 4 different times. Each time Brent's has been closed with no notice online or on the door. This is poor business. I believe they are under new management but I'll never be able to review the food... More

I ate here many times because the food is good and the environment is fun! But do not go here if you are on a schedule. The service is slow. It's still a good experience, but just be prepared to wait. Go with someone you love to hang out and talk with!

This is a very fun place to eat. It has all of the charm of an old soda shop and the shakes and malts are great. I also really enjoyed the salad sampler with pimento cheese and chicken salad. I also tasted my wife's burger. It was great too.
