Restaurants in Jackson, GA

Jackson offers a taste of good old Georgia, unaffected by culinary trends. Fresh Air Barbecue, for instance, since 1929, opens every day at 8am and has has a three-item menu: barbecue, Brunswick stew, cole slaw. Seating is at long communal wooden tables like a humble eating club, or like a nice summer camp. Farther south on Route 23 is Hunter’s Cafe, where the motto is “Southern Cooking Done Right.” That means breakfast that offers a pigmeat choice of red links, country links, country ham, sausage gravy, bacon, or streak o’ lean. At lunch there are pork chops, Thursday neck bones, Friday BBQ, and Sunday baked ham. If you’re a pig frowner: fried chicken, baked chicken, meat loaf, turkey and dressing. Still, if you are kosher, halal, vegetarian, or vegan, Hunter’s Cafe is probably not for you.
