Ribs are GREAT

Ate the "wet" BBQ ribs there today. They were exceptional. I've eaten there before and like(d) the food. The ribs were over the top good.

OK, let me set this up for you. Me and my wife are sick and don't feel like cooking. She sends me to Trace Grill to pick up dinner. We love Trace Grill and eat here frequently. They are one of the best meat & 3 places around. Great selection of veggies and the burgers are good. So I get... More

My wife and I eat lunch at Trace Grill several times a year. We would eat more here more often it we lived nearby because the lunch and service is great. Our favorite is the Friday lunch special, fried red fish. For $12.50, you get a large filet (grilled, fried, or broiled) with large portion of onion rings and cole... More

If your looking for a great place for lunch head over to the Trace Grill. Stopped in with a co-worker friend of mine for lunch, even though it was around 2:00pm they were still serving their blue plate special. They have several entree's and sides to choose from so there is something for everyone. The food is well above average... More

You can always count on good home style vegetables here. The fried catfish is good too. If you go at lunch time expect a line. But it moves quickly. The bathrooms are always clean, which to me means a lot. Good value!

I had the meat loft which was good but the bread was hard and the sides lacked seasoning. You have to stand in front of the restaurant and order before you sit. I guess this is how things was done years and years ago but times have changed. So should this.....

Great place to go for good, downhome Southern cooking! Can't beat the plate lunch specials, and the handpattied hamburgers served on homemade buns...YUM!

The fried fish, fried oysters and sides are true Southern delights. The other dishes are there to make you feel like you were back home again. Came from out of town and knew this was going to be one of my best meals. Casual and sit yourself but excellent service.

I was in Jackson for business last month. Finding a non-chain quality meal around town was difficult. The Trace Grill was our saving grace. We had delicious sides liked creamed corn, bbq beans and fried okra. My colleague and I both enjoyed the blackened catfish with a nice side of cornbread. The food was fresh, well cooked and cheap. It's... More
