The burgers were decent...

Our family stopped by on our way to Pensacola. It's located in a cool artsy retro part of town. The burgers were decent. The onion rings had a strange rubbery batter on them and the french fries were rock hard. Their smothered dishes looked good but none of us tried them. Not sure we would go out... read more

I had read about Roosters before we got to Jackson. When I saw they had Jalapeno Cheddar buns made fresh daily, I knew I had to try one. I decided on the Bacon Cheeseburger and the Jalapeno Cheddar buns simply make your burger better. I had never had a bun like this, but it enhanced the flavor of the burger.... More

This place is great. I have been multiple times and have never been disappointed. The burgers are huge and the rest of the portion sizes are huge. They have the best banana pudding from any restaurant I've ever tasted.

I've been to Rooster's several times and have never had a bad experience. They offer a simple yet tasty menu of burgers, chicken sandwiches, salads, and various "plate" meals. The bacon cheeseburger is delicious - make sure you get a side of curly fries (it's a generous serving, too!) I am a HUGE fan of the red beans and rice.... More

Homemade food w/exception of packaged brown gravy mix used. The hamburger steak was good, the mashed potatos would have been better w/o the packaged gravy, but the Mac and cheese was the best ever for a diner, it was baked to perfection.

Thanks tripadvisor for letting us know about this little place. The food was delicious! I have to say, I think that was the best hamburger EVER! The homemade buns are delicious!! And the banana pudding was a great choice for dessert. And the staff, well they are very friendly. We will stop in again next time we are in Jackson.

This was so out of the way for us traveling, but oh so worth it! The staff was great and great burgers. We had mushroom swiss burger and Delta burger (this had a fried green tomato and tomato gravy) - both were super yummy. Highly recommend!

Juicy burgers with homemade buns and REAL fries. Red beans and rice are also very good. This is a family owned restaurant and everything is prepared with care.
