Fanstic Burgers on the Movie Set

This Jackson staple was part of the movie, The Help. Locals know the burgers and onion rings with a cherry coke are amazing! After the restaurant closes for the evening, walk through the unlocked front door, through the restaurant to the back, and step into Jackson's

While the location is the same, changes to the menu and staff have not all been positive. We recently tried brunch on a Sunday. We were seated quickly.............the booth needs to be replaced as there were no longer springs, just a "deep hole". The service and food delivery were slow. The children in the large booth across from us were... More

Brent's looks amazing, very old school diner that's all clean and shiny. But I went to visit Apothecary, the speakeasy in the back. What a lovely experience. I was there on a special New Orleans theme night, complete with bartenders who'd come up for the night. Wound up talking for awhile to one of the regular bartenders who was on... More

In search of a good breakfast in the land of IHOP and The Awful House, I decided to try Brent's Drugs. At first glance the nostalgic decor is inviting and suggests that a pleasant experience is in store. I was greeted promptly by the server and was seated at the bar along with the two other customers who were in... More

Went with friends for the first time. Had the patty melt with chili cheese fries. It was really tasty. Classic burger and fries joint. Had the Cookie Monster for desert. Lots of Oreos and calories! Interesting atmosphere, better than fast food for sure. Old music, old chairs/booths, overall nice stop in Jackson.

I had lunch here and it certainly has a neat history. The service was great and food was good, but I was a bit shocked when the bill came. Just seemed like a lot to pay for a simple lunch.

I've been here several times before and I swear I have a different experience every time. The food is never terrible, but has been between average and amazing. Funny thing is, I've never tried one of their hand crafted sodas. Good value for the price though.

it was like taking a step back in time when entering Brents. The milkshake was a great. I stopped in this place so my son could experience what it had to be like when his grandparents were young. It is like taking a step back in history. We didn't eat a meal; however the milkshake was incredible.
