Pecan Park Cafe

Posted by YAR 5 Jul 2010 No Comments

The Pecan Park Cafe (1039 Pecan Park Cir., Jackson) is a friendly soul food restaurant that opened in May.


A lunch plate (meat, two veg, bread) costs $6.50, and is quite a lot of food (don’t be fooled by the low level of beans in the photo below—she actually filled it almost to overflowing, and it did in fact overflow into the rest of the container).  They offer a few things daily (fried chicken, baked chicken, baked fish, greens, string beans, lima beans, mac & cheese and rice & gravy), with an additional two veggies and two meats each day. Notably, all the vegetables seemed to have significantly more meat in them than I am used to seeing—and that’s a good thing as far as I’m concerned.


Although I made the mistake of choosing only things that are naturally sweet, I ended up enjoying my meal quite a lot.  The yams were neither overcooked nor too sugary, and I appreciated the large chunks of hamburger in the beans.  Although the ribs were a bit fatty, as beef ribs can be, the meat wasn’t too tough.  I liked the sauce—it was bordering on too sweet for me, but it did have a slight tang, and I think the sweetness would have been less pronounced if I hadn’t chosen two sweet veggies.  Everything in the cafeteria line looked delicious (and they offer neck bones, which I’ve never had) so I’m looking forward to trying more of Pecan Park’s offerings.

Pecan Park is open weekdays 11am-5pm, and on Sunday 12pm-5pm (I am excited about this—so many places are closed on Sundays).  The number is 601-665-4842.
