Beatty Street Grocery

Posted by YAR 10 Nov 2009 No Comments

Beatty Street Grocery (101 Beatty St, Jackson) is a surprisingly popular lunch spot for somewhere that feels a bit like it’s in the middle of nowhere. Its nearest neighbors all seem to be strip clubs, but the restaurant is totally G-rated.

The number of lunch options is pretty overwhelming. I couldn’t fully take in the whole menu, especially since not all of the options were self-explanatory (at least to me), but I know they had six or seven types of po-boy (including the standard options, and a rib-eye that seemed to be popular among people ahead of me in line). They also had five or six burger sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 16 oz. I got the Beatty Burger–an 8 oz cheeseburger for $3 (add large fries and a coke for less than $6 total–a sign says $5 even but that only applies to non-coke sodas and I needed my Diet Coke). ┬áDespite the number of people in line, the 5 ladies in the kitchen were extremely efficient and I didn’t have to wait long.

The burger was not the most flavorful I’ve ever had, but it was solid, well-dressed, and obviously pretty large for its price. I only got the free dressing options (american cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, et al.) but they had quite a few toppings you could add for a fee. Next time I’m thinking hoop cheese and jalape├▒os.

The fries could have come from the freezer aisle in the grocery, but they were very nicely fried so they had a lovely texture, if an unremarkable taste.

I didn’t even notice until after I picked up my burger and was on the way out that there was an entirely separate deli sandwich section in addition to the grill area I’d ordered from. I look forward to going back to sample more from the large, inexpensive menu.
