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 …

Ellis Seafood (211 W. Woodrow Wilson Ave, Jackson) has two locations in Jackson; I finally drove by this one enough times and had to stop in (the other one is at 1041 Ellis Ave).  They offer many sizes and types of meals and combos, all of which seem like a good deal.  The meals come with two sides (the default is fries and salad but you can sub fried rice or hushpuppies), a drink, and, of course, white bread.  I got a three-piece catfish meal for $4.99, which was plenty …

T’Beaux’s Crawfish & Seafood

T’Beaux’s Crawfish and Seafood (369 W. Northside Dr., Jackson) is a Cajun seafood place specializing in crawfish. It’s the third of three locations; the other two are in Vicksburg and Clinton.

Inside is cute and colorful, with graffitied walls and a covered porch that wasn’t in use on the freezing rainy day we went.

Neither my boyfriend nor I had ever extracted the meat from a whole crawfish. After an iPhone google search and some trial and error, we got good at it and the deliciousness began.  The seasoning was full of …
