Jackson MS- Soulshine vs Sombra

We live down here in Lower Alabama not, but lived in Jackson for 25+ years and we ate at Soleshine many times. At the time it was, and may still be, the best Pizza I have ever eaten. Don't know about Sombra. Never heard of it. Maybe it wasn't open when we lived there.
We live in Foley, AL now and Pappa Murphy, a made in the Pizza store, but cooked at home is the best down here.

Hattiesburg, MS: Where To Eat?

My wife and I passed through Hattiesburg about a week ago. I had read where Robert St Johns had opened an Italian resturant named Tabella. We have eaten and enjoyed the food at both The Purple Parrot and The Crescent City Grill and decided to try the new place this time. Food and service was very good. In fact I think we liked Tabella the best of the bunch.
Tabella is located in the main shopping area just south of the other two a couple doors down from Dirt Cheap.

Jackson, MS- Really missing Old Time Deli!

When Irv retired and sold it the new owner started to make changes to cut cost. It took the new owner
less than a year to destroy what Irv and his staff had spent years building. What a shame……… If something is not broke then don’t fix, or in this case, change it.

Baton Rouge near I-10 or I-12

We ended up a little early in Baton Rough that I thought we would, and it was a little too early to stop for lunch. We crossed the Mississippi thinking I would find a place on the west side of Baton Rough to eat, but had no luck. After crossing the Atchafalaya Basin it was about time to stop and we were beginning to get hungry. Just east of Breaux Bridge we saw a sign for Landry’s Seafood. We stopped there for lunch and are we happy we did!!!!
Great food and service. Fair prices. If ant of you are traveling between Baton Rough and Lafayette on I-10 I highly recommend this restaurant as a great place to eat.

Dallas to Vicksburg lunch options

I vote for the Country Tavern. Other than some ribs I have cooked they have the best BBQ ribs going.
We have stopped there several times on the way from Jackson, MS to the Dallas Fort Worth area.

Gulf Shores, Alabama: Non-Seafood Restaurants

Foley Coffee Shop is very good for breakfast, but so is Kitty's Kafe. Kitty's is a couple or two miles north of the intercoastal waterway bridge in the Pelican Point Shopping Center. Across the street from Targets. Targerts faces west, but Kitty's faces north. Kitty's also has a GREAT plate lunch. Several choices and they all seem to be good.

If you are in Foley you might also want to try out Fish River Grill II. In the strip mall just north of Walgreens Drugs.

If you have never beene to a Lamberts, you might want to give them a try. It is something different, but take cash because they don't take credit cards.

I'll second the Soleshine Pizza. About, if not, the best pizza I have ever had.

You can always get a good plate lunch at noon at CS's. It's on West Street behind Milsaps College.
For GREAT catfish there are few places that are as good as Cock of the Walk. It's out that way and on Ross Barnette Res.
We always enjoyed eating at Char's in Highland Village Shopping Center. Locatged on the southeast corner of Northside drive and I-20. A little more upscale, but good food.

Where do you go for fried chicken in Foley/Gulf Shores?

While you are down here be sure to try Fish River Grill II in Foley. It’s located just north of Walgreens in Foley on the west side of Highway 59. Good food and good swamp soup.
Also you need to eat at Kitty’s Kafe in the Pelican Park shopping center. It faces Target. Great for breakfast and lunch.

Where do you go for fried chicken in Foley/Gulf Shores?

I live down here, and the best chicken I have had was at Doc's in Orange Geach. I tried the one in Gulf Shores, but it was not as good as the one in Orange Beach. It's located on Cannel Road where 182 (or what ever the highway is, all I lcan remember it is 18 something).

Jackson MS to Mobile AL on 49/98

We have eaten at the Crescent City Grill in Hattiesburg, MS several times and have always been pleased. It’s on Hardy Street (That’s the street than runs on the south side of Southern Mississippi University. It’s it’s a few blocks east of I-59 (That’s a bypass for both US 49 and 98 around Hattiesburg).
I also understand that Chesterfields has reopened. We ate there a few times before it burned. I understand that it’s now also on Hardy Street but west of I-59 somewhere near the shopping mall.

dinner in Jackson, MS

I would not call it fine dinning by any stretch, but if you have never treated yourself to some sure enough Mississippi farm raised catfish then by all means go to The Cock of the Walk out on the Ross Barnett Reservoir.

Tamales

Anyone know if there is anywhere in South Baldwin County Alabama, near or south of Interstate 10, where you can buy tamales? The same question is true for the city of Mobile.

Jackson, MS Information

Is Bill's Burger House still open?
I also have not seen anything on here about CHAR. To me it was one of the better places in Jackson to eat lunch.

Visiting Gulf shores Alabama - Where to eat?

There's lots of good places to eat down here. We like Kitty's Kafe. It's just north of Gulf Shores in the Pecilan Point shopping center. Fish River #2 in Foley is one of our favorites too. Just past the Walgreen Drug store on Highway 59. You get a lot of food for the buck at Lambert's in Foley.
