Lunch at Brent’s Drugs was one of the few highlights of our trip across Mississippi. Located in a shopping center constructed in the immediate post-WWII boom and open since 1946, the store retains its original charm. Period 1940s-1950s architecture, advertising, and furnishings abound. Our children loved eating at the long lunch counter on their individual stools and watching the action. Everyone enjoyed their meals, especially their malts and milkshakes! My father-in-law confirmed that the experience was straight out of the 1950s, even the aqua-blue and white booths and counters. If you’ve ever been to the 50’s Prime Time Café at Walt Disney World it looks just like that, but real! The servers were very friendly and patient with the kids and the prices were fair; we would certainly eat here again!

Brent's is a staple of Jackson and Fondren. It's fun to go & just get a coke, or a burger & fries. Very retro - a blast from the past!
