Rack of Ribs

Whether you’re a local foodie or visiting from nearby Madison, you might be wondering, “Where are the very best places to eat in Jackson, MS?” Luckily, this town is packed with culinary delights that are sure to impress any palette. Whether you want award-winning BBQ at Pig and Pint or award-winning gumbo at Char Restaurant, you’ll never stay hungry in this town for very long!

Pig and Pint

The Pig and Pint is known for its award-winning, low and slow BBQ – as well as the largest selection of craft beers in the entire state of Mississippi! While barbecued meats and homemade sauces are the star of the show, the menu is full of options to satisfy your appetite. Start with small plates like pork belly corn dogs with tomato-ginger jam or pecan-smoked white BBQ wings, or move right into the barbecue bonanza. Mango brisket tacos, BBQ pork sandwiches on brioche, or award-winning cola-glazed ribs, your options are endless!

The Iron Horse Grill

The Iron Horse Grill is known for its curious history and its impressive menu. While the original location mysteriously burned in a fire, this phoenix rose from the ashes in 1999 to become one of the best places to eat in Jackson. This restaurant spins classic flavors and turns them into something new and exciting. Try beef tenderloin fajitas grilled on the competition charcoal grill, crab-stuffed catfish with a rich pecan crust, or chicken fried chicken with mashed potatoes. No matter what you choose, you won’t forget the Iron Horse Grill.

Char Restaurant

Brunch, lunch, dinner, Char Restaurant is here to serve! This local favorite is upscale, but never stuffy, and their unique flavor combinations will wake up your tastebuds. We love their weekend brunch with offerings like the custard-friend French toast and steak benedict with onion strings, but if you can’t make the morning, stop by for lunch or dinner. Try the award-winning crab, shrimp, and andouille gumbo or Sin City BBQ shrimp with spicy creole garlic butter. Leave some room for their famous house-made pecan pie or blueberry bread pudding with whisky sauce – or take a serving to go for the long ride home to Jackson!
