“A Jackson Landmark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

Best Fried Chicken Ever! A local, family owned business, passed through the generations. Breakfast is great, and the Greek food is good too. You can't beat the fun atmosphere.

“Delish in downtown!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2005

The proximity of this restaurant to the Mississippi Museum of Art makes it a natural choice for lunch. And the food - what can I say? The fried trout is delish! Also try the Greek plate - kind of like a disassembled gyro, smothered in a feta dressing.

If you are really nice and ask in advance, sometimes they will make homemade onion rings for you! Fabulous!

Prices are very reasonable, too.
