You know those days that you just want some down home cooking? I’ve tried to find the perfect southern biscuits, pot pies, and homemade chili from any ordinary restaurant but it just doesn’t cut it.
Scott Jones, legendary Dallas restaurateur, and his sister Sandy Jones have opened a restaurant that you will all crave and can’t get enough of. Jack’s Southern Comfort Food is the perfect combination of your grandma’s house, southern food, and that homey feeling. When entering Jack’s Southern Comfort you automatically get the feeling of warmth, all prejudices are left at the door while dining in this quaint restaurant off of Greenville Aveune.
Here is a peek into Jack’s Southern Comfort Food.
No flowers here, instead you will find green onions in mason jars as your center piece. Dr. Pepper served in a bottle? I’ll take it any and every day.
Skip the bread, we had deviled eggs for our starter. Jack’s deviled eggs are made with cage-free organic jumbo Texas eggs with Chef T’s blue plate stuffing.
The weather is getting cooler and brisket chili was the perfect meal. Brisket chili is served on jalapeno cheddar cornbread.
A staple in most families is chicken pot pie, but have you upside down chicken pot pie? Jack’s pot pies are made with farm fresh vegetables folded into rich bechamel with your choice of meat (chicken, pork & green chile, braised brisket, crawfish or truffle mushroom) and ladled over hot buttermilk biscuits.
Like most people, I had to try the mac n cheese. Large noodles with the perfect amount of cheese, made this savory mac n’ cheese a must try.
Not only was did Jack’s Southern Comfort Food prove to have sheer southern touch, the decorations and scenery added the feeling of being at home. You will find food served on mix match vintage plates, antique table linens at each table, deviled egg plates that line the wall, and homemade chocolate cookies on the counter for you to grab at any time.
Waitresses and Waiters wear homemade aprons that Sandy Jones’ daughter makes by hand. These aprons are sold at the restaurant and a portion of the proceeds benefit The Bridge Breast Network, a non-profit that saves lives by linking low income, uninsured individuals to diagnostic and treatment services for breast cancer. Jack’s is asking customers to “donate their dukes” (as in Daisy!) – giving their old jeans and jean skirts to turn them into hope for those battling breast cancer. Everyone who donates gets a coupon for a free Over the Moon Pie.
One complaint with good ole southern food, is that it will leave you feeling overly full and known to put you into a food coma but after my meal at Jack’s I didn’t feel that way.Jack’s Southern Comfort Food is a great addition to Lower Greenville. When you get that feeling for some down home food but can’t make it to grandma’s house, head over to Jack’s Southern Comfort Food.
