Local hot spots from Washington Addition and Farish Street to Midtown and Fondren provide more than enough choice for every palate. Simply put, if one is in search of authentic southern fare in Jackson, Miss., it isn’t hard to find.
That said, however, County Line road and I-55 is certainly not the place most people would think to look. The area is packed full of strip center shops and national chain restaurants, which—along with the shopping mall—draw enough of a daily crowd to make the traffic nearly unbearable by Jackson standards.
So it may come as a surprise to learn that one of the city’s best hidden gems lies nestled amongst the trees just off of the interstate on the west side of this busy intersection as you approach Tougaloo College.
