F. Jones Corner: Revitalizing Jackson, One Beer at a Time

I admit that I was biased in favor of F. Jones Corner (303 N. Farish St., Jackson) as soon as  saw their t-shirts, which say “Revitalizing Jackson, One Beer at a Time.”

The building apparently used to be a gas station (JFP). As you can see, there are no windows, which explains the extremely poor food photos below.  Sorry about that!

I’ve gotten the F’n Crab Burger both times I’ve been to F. Jones, and I enjoyed it both times. There is plenty of crab, along with peppers and other seasonings that …

Paul Anthony’s Market Cafe

Paul Anthony’s Market (4500 I-55 Frontage Rd N, Highland Village, Jackson) is a butcher, caterer, and fancy-ish market that sells fresh seafood and prepared foods. All that would be impressive enough, but they also serve hot lunches and sandwiches, which you can take to go or eat at one of the small tables in the store or on the patio.

I got a brisket sandwich that was much more brisket than sandwich—the bread didn’t add much, but the brisket was great and plentiful. It had some crisp to it, some fat, …

Steve’s 2.0 Beta

Steve’s Downtown Deli currently has a stand at the Pinnacle Building (Lamar St and Capitol St), where he is trying out some new sandwiches and preparing for his permanent move, sometime around January, to a new location at Jackson Place. I have a feeling I’ll be going to the new location as often as I go to the current one.
The stand offers soup and boxed lunches; the boxes are a pretty good deal at $8 for a sandwich, chips, and one of Steve’s great chewy cookies. I got a roast …

Miller’s Grill

Miller’s Grill (224 E. Capitol St., Jackson) is second only to Steve’s in terms of the number of times I’ve eaten there for lunch. It’s fast, it’s grilled and/or fried to order, and everything I’ve had so far has been tasty.

The burger patty may just be your standard thin-style patty, but it is well seasoned (salt and pepper, with more pepper than most burgers) and grilled right. There are plenty of topping options; I got basic cheddar and ketchup and was perfectly satisfied. The fact that the bun is warmed …

Crazy Cat Bakers

Crazy Cat Bakers (4500 I-55 N (Highland Village), Jackson) has a pretty intriguing sandwich menu, so I was excited to try it for lunch. Mostly, the ham + cheese + asparagus sandwich caught my eye. It sounded both borderline insane and yet totally obvious, somehow. I wondered just how crazy this place would be.

It certainly looks ordinary enough, except that it’s located deep in the bowels of the mildly creepy Highland Village. There are small tables both inside the bakery and outside in the courtyard (which is very pleasant except …

Beatty Street Grocery

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 …

Wired Espresso Cafe

If you’ve ever been to Wired (115 N. State St, Jackson), or just seen it as you passed by, you probably didn’t think of it as a place to eat. I only thought of it because eating is pretty much all I ever think about.

The chicken salad sandwich was straightforward and basic. Though there was nothing extraordinary about it, it was definitely solid. The ingredients (especially the bread) were of above-average quality and everything went together well.  It was a thoughtful sandwich, if not an inspired one.

The roast beef and …
