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.

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!
