Absolutely the best fried chicken sandwich in town. But beware, go hungry, it is BIG. The curly fries and the onion rings are to die for. They have great plate lunches, too. Don't forget the banana pudding for dessert.

My husband and I were in Jackson on a business trip and decided to try Rooster's after checking them out on TripAdvisor. Let me tell you, they did not disappoint! I ordered the chicken with the tomato creole gravy, with a side of mashed potatoes and mac and cheese. It was love at first bite. The chicken was fried perfectly... More

We stopped in on the recommendation of Trip Advisor and I'm so glad we did. It is located in a really neat part of Jackson we never would have seen. Very clean. Friendly staff. Great southern food!! My husband LOVED his red beans and rice!!

The homemade jalapeño cheddar buns for the burgers are so delicious! Just a little spicy that adds so much to the grilled chicken burger. The red beans and rice were good. The 8 oz hamburger with a side of coleslaw was very good, too. The sweet iced tea was fresh tasting. My kids liked the Mac and Cheese. The curly... More

This is a neat little place to go. It's burgers, chicken, country fried steak, etc.. It's good, and the atmosphere in the Fondren district is fun. There are lots of good restaurants in Fondren District, and if you want a good burger this is a good choice.

We were visiting family and stopped here for a late lunch. Let me just say that I wish there was a Rooster's in NC! Everything was fresh and delicious and the portions were plentiful. I highly recommend the fried chicken filet sandwich and the onion rings. Delish!

Great food, friendly service-- I had the fried chicken sandwich on a homemade bun, it melts in your mouth. Others in our party had burgers and said they were good, but wished they had gotten chicken. And then there is the banana pudding. The sweet lady behind the counter said it is her mother's receipe. It is true southern -... More

This is a great place to eat albeit I've only been here twice. Both times I ordered the red beans and rice. They were SO good the first time I hated to try anything else the second time. Very affordable and the atmosphere is relaxing. This is a must and conveniently located to the hospitals should you be visiting friends... More
