Ole Tavern on George St.

The Ole Tavern (416 George St, Jackson) manages to have a good bar atmosphere and a good restaurant atmosphere at the same time.  It has a pub-like feel, with a lot of dark wood and brick, plus high ceilings and big windows.  I appreciate that the place feels like it’s trying without trying too hard.

Despite the photo above, it was bustling when we went for lunch on a Tuesday; only the bar was empty.  My coworker ordered the King George’s Burger from the specials board.  It was huge, and came …

The Blue Rooster

A friend told me that the Blue Rooster (4822 Hwy 22, Flora) has the best burgers around. Then she told me I should call ahead to make sure they were open because they have unreliable hours, and I was there. I tend to have an affinity for places with unreliable hours.
Turns out they were open that Saturday for lunch (they may or may not actually have unreliable hours). They definitely do have some serious burgers.

This is the impressive Big Nasty: two patties with bacon, pepper jack, sauteed onions, etc, on …
