Classic Jackson Diner

Simple diner with very good "home cooked" style meals, daily blue plate specials, and friendly atmosphere. If there is room left for dessert, the carrot cake is not to be missed.

I love coming to Primos with my family! The food is WONDERFUL and the desserts are even BETTER! Try their strawberry cake! Primos is where I come to unplug. It feels to me like Home.

We found this place last year (2014) when we were in town for business over my husband's birthday. His favorite cake for his birthday is strawberry cake and I luckily found Primo's. This year, we just happened to be in the area again around his birthday so we had to come back. We've eaten both breakfast and lunch here and... More

They do the simple things well here. Scrambled eggs, sausage, grits and toast. Everyone should be able to do these well, but Primos is exceptionally good at getting the best out of simple ingredients.

Went there for lunch. Blue plate specials are very good. We Had chicken n' dumplings, turnip greens, purple hull peas, Mac n' cheese and fried broccoli between the two of us. Food was served relatively quick and tasted very good. After that it is self service. Overall a nice place to get a good plate of country food.

This is one of those order and pay at the counter, have a seat, and your food is brought to you places. There is a good variety to choose from including blue plate specials that change, and breakfast is available at night. Their grits are really, really, REALLY good. The restaurant is clean, well lit, and comfortable.

I ordered a Reuben and potato salad, and it was excellent. My son got a sandwich and potato salad and loved it. We have eaten at Primos a few times, and it is always good. The service was good as well. We did not, on this occasion, get dessert, but their desserts are outstanding.

Great breakfast. The food isn't greasy & sloppy like most breakfast places. You receive your food fairly quick. Very clean & organized.

Just finished take out lunch from Primos Cafe. I tried their blue plate special which changes daily. I tried their grilled tilapia, butter peas and mac & cheese. The sides were terrific especially the mac & cheese. There was a nice layer of browned cheese on top of my mac & cheese which was delicious. The grilled tilapia was flavorful,... More

traditional southern style food and menu choices, not much to go wrong- uneventful but good for a hungry "tomy" to be filled without fanfare.
