Need a quick, excellent drive-through stop in Jackson, MS area

Coming through the south en route to our destination and need another stop. Going to Interstate BBQ for lunch and need a dinner.

Must be fast and close to 55.

  1. My fave food in Jackson is Indian at Spice Avenue on the frontage Rd. Take the Briarwood Exit off I-55 (before you get to downtown) and head south on the frontage road. Don't be fooled and pull into Ruchi which you will pass on the right. Spice Avenue is just after IHOP and the cosmetology school. Not fast so call from the interstate (maybe when you approach the Gluckstadt exit). The phone number is 601 982-0890. They are open from 11:30 a.m. until 10 p.m. every day. The butter chicken is total heaven. The chicken tikka kabob - chunks of tender white meat marinated and barbecued with fresh lime juice squeezed over - is also great.

    1. Like Jane, I think you may be out of luck if you are looking for true drive-thru, but you could call Broad Street Bakery from the road -- 601.362.2900 -- and get a good sandwich. Here's the site for the menu to paste into your browser -- It is on the frontage road just an exit south of Briarwood, at the Northside/Meadowbrook exit (Exit 100, I think), then through the stoplight and on the right. They are quick so you probably don't need to call much more than ten minutes out.
