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.

We went on a Friday night with a party of 8. The wait time was very short and our order was accurate when delivered. I had the Swiss Mushroom Burger which was delicious and my husband had the Chicken Fried Steak which he said the same thing about! The parking can get a little tricky but next door is a... More

On our way home from the beach, we were hungry and tired after a 7-hour drive turned into 10. We found Rooster's through TripAdvisor reviews. This part of Jackson is easily accessible from the highway, just a 5-10 minutes from I-55/I-20 intersection, and we'll worth the stop. Located in the first floor of an office building, Rooster's is a casual... More

So glad we discovered this gem on our way down to the beach. This is one of the juiciest burgers I have ever had and it was seasoned perfectly. The homemade jalapeño bun was amazing as we're the onion rings. Great staff and service as well. We will be back!

A group of six eat here regularly. We enjoy the varied menu and the politeness of employees. We have never felt rushed. I like the seating in the interior "patio" area.
