Pat Starnes' Snippets: Mississippi: Jackson: Fondren Historic District

Walker's Drive In - Home Cooking in the Heart of Fondren

Today I found myself in the historic Fondren district around lunchtime and decided to stop in at Walker's Drive In for lunch.

Walker's Drive In, a popular Jackson eatery, is located between Fondren Place and Duling Drive at 3016 North State Street. Business is brisk with it's lunch clientele and the Blue Plate Special is popular with the locals, as are the fried green tomatoes, fried portabello mushrooms, and burgers and po-boys.

Bartender at Walker'sWalker's is mentioned in the Top Ten Jackson Restaurants by 10Best. The decor is intriguing art-deco, complete with glass block windows, black and white checkerboard floors, and white linen tablecloths. You can dine at the counter or sit at one of their booths. Today a number of people were enjoying the open air patio overlooking North State Street.

If you want to experience friendly service and good home-cooking, stop by Walker's Drive In for a tasty treat and enjoy the unique atmosphere offered by this historic landmark.
