Jackson, Mississippi, prides itself on the diversity of its population, something that is reflected in the city’s deliciously varied restaurant scene. From down home soul food to fine dining, Jackson offers excellent opportunities to discover a bite of Southern culture presented in vibrant restaurants springing up in some of the city’s burgeoning neighborhoods. Southern comfort is maintained in the cuisine but elevated to a new delicious level. Stop by Walker’s Drive In, Hal & Mal’s, and Brent’s Drugs. Some more places to eat would be Char for some sizzling steaks, CS’s for a big burger, and Pig & Pint for some anything-but-bland barbecue. This city is known for being the birthplace of American blues music and being the home to many well known musicians, but their food scene is becoming a new staple for their tourists.
At the Atlanta Food and Wine Festival, Mississippi chefs are preparing to showcase their culinary talent for attendees.
