The first time I visited Brent's was as a newcomer to Jackson about 18 months ago. It was highly recommended for their burger and shake. The burger was very simple, but tasty and worth the few bucks that they charged at the time. The shake was excellent and would bring me back again. I returned just this week and brought... More

This place is great. I have been here about five times. The food is delicious. They no longer serve the frozen burgers. Fresh tasty food. Don't leave without getting a milkshake. They are the best around. They recently updated and have more seating. This place is one of a kind. A jewel for Jackson!

I've heard so much about this place, especially since the very recent 'remodel.' Um, if this place is remodeled, I'd have hate to see it before. I appreciate the history of the place and the use of original fixtures, which is why I won't be harsh. The food was good, but it IS NOT American diner food. There is a... More

I grew up in Jackson and remember when Brent's had the pharmacy and soda fountain. I must say I was very impressed when my wife and I visited Brent's on 8/9/2014. The change is amazing along with the offerings. Kudos to the owner and what has been changed to make Brent's a fine establishment with the traditional burgers PLUS a... More

I had been anxiously awaiting an excuse to go eat lunch at the newly reopened Brent's, and I was not disappointed after dining here for lunch with my mom this week. I like how it still feels retro & like the original Brent's when you walk in; in fact, you really have to look closely to see what has changed... More

The newly remodeled Brent's Drugs is wonderful, but be prepared to wait over an hour for your burger or sandwich to arrive at your table and this will not include the wait time for your table. This is not the place to come for your lunch hour, as you will be late returning to work. Also, it was so hot... More

Definitely will be returning. I had a burger and a shake. Nothing fancy but amazing food. That burger had never seen the inside of a freezer. There was still a line at the door on well after the lunch rush on a Saturday but it was worth the short wait.

We have been longtime diners of Brent's. After a recent visit to the renovated classic, we are even bigger fans. The food has greatly improved while the fun diner feel has stayed the same. In spite of nearly doubling the seating, I still felt like there was more room and did not feel crowded. The staff seemed to be hustling,... More

We recently returned to Brent's after their renovations. The added seating is good and we enjoyed sitting at the bar overlooking the kitchen. The hamburgers are great as well as the salad sampler. There were many dishes that looked wonderful and we were told the menu was in process of being upgraded. We can't wait to return and give the... More

We've been here twice (would've been more, but they were closed a few months for remodeling), the latest being this past Saturday night. You go here for the speakeasy vibe and bespoke cocktails. The bartenders are true mixologists. No store bought mixes here, as they make all of their own from fresh ingredients. We tried several different concoctions from the... More
