Family owned and family run, one of a kind breakfast and lunch place. Good food, large portions, and community atmosphere. Some very unique items on the menu, like American Fries 7 different ways. Fun atmosphere.

First time at this location. Good, hearty food with good service. Menu is done with a bit of wit. Many breakfast and lunch selections. Open for breakfast and lunch only.

The place can be very busy on the weekend, but well worth the wait. The food is the best. Large Proportions. A small Mom and Pop place. A+ A+ A+

Park in back, walk through the kitchen, say hello to the friendly cooks, sit down and order absolutely anything off the menu and it will excellent. My use of the word "excellent" is not an overstatement. Jackson natives have long known that the Roxy Cafe is the place to go for great food but in recent years the word has... More

Busy spot on a Saturday morning, service and food was very good. Restaurant is very small so it fills up fast.

Been to the Roxy Cafe on N. West Ave a few times now, have to wait for seating as it's usually popular at the weekend; this gets a little awkward as your often in the doorway or in the gangway to the kitchen. As its packed the servers are rushed and last time we went fluffed our orders up. It... More

The Roxy is not about decor or ambiance; it is all about the food! There is not one single thing on the menu that is not delicious, and you better be hungry when you get there since the servings are rather large. To go with some of the best breakfast food you will find anywhere, the service is very friendly.
