There was street construction going on at the time, so it was a chore to find parking. I ordered a takeout panini and salad for lunch. It took forever to prepare, and the quality of food was terrible. Dry chicken and rusty head lettuce rather...More

The focaccia is WONDERFUL. It's the main reason I love basil's. The cheese steak on it is my favorite!

A favorite place for lunch when in Fondren. The chef salad with the homemade deviled egg is so good you may have to order an extra egg! The pizza is fresh and delicious. In fact, you can't go wrong with anything you order. A tiny...More

I love Basil's and I even fight the parking lot to eat there. They have a tomato basil soup and Pimento Cheese BLT that are out of this world.
