Bill’s Greek Tavern
I ordered my food from Bill’s Greek Tavern (4760 McWillie Dr, Jackson) to go, but everyone in the restaurant was having such a good time that I wished I could stay. Next time, I will be bringing some wine and eating in.
Even though I would have had more fun eating in, I certainly did not get skimped, food-wise, by taking out. For $20, I got two giant red snapper filets (I was told this was the best fish of the day), a baked potato, veggies, pita, and a fairly large greek salad. The salad was made with fresh, high-quality, vegetables and feta.
The fish was the highlight of the meal. It was very simply prepared, with a lovely crust and very mild seasoning—most of the flavor came from the fish itself, which was well cooked and moist. The veggies were a bit bland, but not bad. And the pita was my favorite kind—soft, almost pillowy, and with the powdery reddish seasoning that I think is sumac.
It was a huge, enjoyable meal. Next time (when I eat in) I plan to try their specialty, the gyro platter. Bill’s is open for lunch and dinner, Monday through Saturday; the number is (601) 982-9295.
