A classic American diner with a short menu that includes tuna melt, burger and milkshakes. It's a great place to stop if you're on the road and need a bite!

VERY neat place to grab a malt and feel like you're stepping back in time. This gem has been in Jackson forever and it's still going strong.

We ate here because of The Help movie. The food was tasty! I had a Cobb Salad and my son had a burger, fries and a shake. He didn't love the fried. The servers were so attentive and wonderful!

I admit - we went to this place because it was a location in "the Help' movie and I was curious. We weren't eating a meal but went in for a treat. Our waitress was amazing. We sat at the counter and I had a maltdown - which is basically a milkshake with crush Whoppers in it. So good! Very... More

We are in town fleeing the floods in south Louisiana. We decided to try this place out! Really neat old diner feel. Food was good. People were nice.. of course we got milkshakes and desserts as well and they were great!

Do you want excellent service and food in an environment like the '60's? Brent's Drugs is the place. I kept looking for Fonzie to walk in. The hamburgers are great, the tuna salad sandwich is like mother used to make it, and the floats and shakes are outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant in the heart of Fondren Station in...

I can't remember how I happened across this establishment. I'm sure word of mouth, but it had the best homemade icecream I've had since my great-grandfather made it for me as a child. My favorite-and you've got to try it-is Cookie Monster Sundae! Whew! Mind blowing! The service is excellent too! Everyone there is cordial, friendly, and family oriented.

Go back to the 50s or so at Brent's Drugs. The interior decor is amazing. The food is great and the portions are amazing. So are the prices. You will feel like you went back in time at Brent's Drugs. I highly recommend Sunday Brunch.

I went to Brent's both before and after the remodel. Before the remodel, the food was ok (except at breakfast, was good at breakfast) but the service was terrible. Like an hour and a half for lunch because they have one miserable server for 20 tables terrible. Just mismanaged. After the remodel it was supposed to be better. Went to... More
