It depends on the day.

Brent's is a neat place to go for a burger and shake. They make a cheese soup which is usually pretty good. However last time I went it was really watered down.

Went to Jackson to do the driving tour of locations featured in the movie "The Help." The tour bombed since the directions were unclear, but the visit to Brent's Drugs was the highlight of our trip. We arrived just before lunchtime & sat at the counter & ordered a malt & a root beer float. Both were prepared with precision,... More

My mom and I came to Brent's after a weekend trip on the Mississippi coast. We wanted a unique Jackson place. We sat down, weren't even addressed for almost ten minutes. My mom and I ordered drinks, and hers was never brought. She gave me my water left then came back and asked what my mother even ordered. The food... More

After seeing that he pulled off the lettuce and set it... More

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

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
