Departed Orange Beach, AL headed home to WI. Stopped for a bite to eat in Jackson MS. Found Roosters. Big salad was great, burgers were good, especially the home made buns. Staff was really friendly. Stop in and check it out.

This place does burgers right! Very casual and laid back. A must stop for anyone looking for good food at a great price.

Typical American fare-burgers, chicken tenders, country fried steak, salads, etc. Burgers can be ordered in either 6 or 8 oz. The 6 oz is a very nice size burger. Burgers are pretty basic-lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles. There is an option for cheese or bacon but not much else. Nothing for the fun stuff like grilled onions, mushrooms, comeback, avocado.

Great food, quick service. Went as a family of 5 - sat in the outside area. Really enjoyed the spicy burger and the red beans/sausage meal. Most of the meals come with a nice salad. Very good curly fries.

This place has your typically American cuisine hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, chicken strips etc. However, I ate a salad and probably won't make that mistake again! I was extremely impressed with the chicken strips look well prepared with a Southern Style.

Roosters is wonderful if you want good, greasy food. The burgers and chicken tenders are both great. The atmosphere isn't anything special. It's pretty plain, almost like a diner. However, that's not what's really important. The food is what matters and it's amazing.

Funky neighborhood, good food. Burgers are cooked to order, sides are generous and flavorful. Red beans are excellent.

Yep, this is a good place to eat. We had chicken over grits. Definitely good comfort food for southern folks. Well prepared and tasty and plentiful. They offer a wide array of burgers. I can't speak to how good they are but they seemed to have potential.

Best hamburger I've had in a while. The buns are worth the trip! This restaurant offered a lot of options for the burgers and chicken on the menu. Curly fries & onion rings were delicious. They have a good selection of sides, and homemade banana pudding for dessert. I'll definitely go back.
