St. Louis MO to Ocean Springs MS stopping in Jackson MS

I am visiting my Father in Ocean Springs this week and we are driving down. We should pull a long haul the first day, probably lunching in Memphis at Gus's, but I have not been in Jackson before. We will need dinner and breakfast there. We like all sorts of food and have a strong preferance for local establishments. What can't we miss? Thanks!

      Love Walker's too. Some other suggestions: Nick's (fine dining), Bravo (Italian-ish), Sal & Mookie's (pizza), El Guadalupe (taqueria), Julep (semi-Southern), Broad Street (sandwiches), Tico's (steak). Breakfast is not really my thing, but Primo's is good. Broad Street has good pastries/muffins. Post if you need more info or are looking for something in a specific area.

    2. Thanks so much for your advice! I am going to look up all of these and figure out where we are going to go. We will be there tomorrow night if anyone else has any opinions!

        Bon Ami in Maywood Mart for breakfast (dinner, too, for that matter).
