One of the best burgers in Jackson. The bun is fresh and yummy. Great little location, too bad I am always on my lunch hour and cannot enjoy the atmosphere. To go orders are welcome though.

Everything here is the best. I always look forward to my next visit, wish it was closer. Curly fries and onion rings are delicious, not greasy. Burgers cooked as you like, the meat is always fresh, cooked to perfection! The plate orders are equally delicious, better than home cooked.

Found this little gem using tripadvisor.com after spending all day at a cheer competition. The reviews looked good so we gave it a chance and it paid off. The food was excellent, the service was great and the prices are very reasonable. I personally had a cheeseburger and onion rings and they were very tasty. The chicken tenders were huge... More

Today I had a hankering for the best chicken tenders in town. So, I decided to go to Rooster's. Great food; great service; great value in a very artsy environment. Fondren is one of the last vestiges of civilization in Jackson...so come on out and support the community and a GREAT restaurant.

We stopped by for a quick dinner. It was delicious as usual. I got the regular cheeseburger (6oz) on jalapeno bread and curly fries. That bread is absolutely divine. It's a little sweet and a little spicy, which makes a great combination on a cheeseburger. The curly fries were fine, but I felt like we got the bottom of the... More

Very enjoyable experience! Loved the onion rings. They bake the buns. A little pricy for burger, side, and a drink - about $12. Fun atmosphere and very kind staff!

I like my cheeseburger to have the cheese on the meat, melted. At Roosters, the cheese is cold and placed nowhere near the meat. This is a personal choice of mine, and might not bother other folks. I have eaten at Roosters on many occasions and the cheeseburger is always served this way.

Once you figure out your way around the Fondren and Bellview area there are a lot of food options available. The first night I tried to find some place to eat only to find out that so many places in jackson close early. I stumbled upon Rooster's in the Fondren area. I ordered a basic burger and fries which I... More

I've ate at several places with burgers state side from alabama to texas and michigan, even overseas... this one just was okay.... as they say "nothing to write home about" Fries were a little weird with whatever they were battered in, not a...

Make sure you check your bag before you leave! I keep giving this restaurant a chance because it's so near home and work, but the employees are always so rude and always get my order incorrect! If you ask for ketchup, they either don't give it to you, or give 1 pack. Really??
