There are lots of reasons we enjoy eating out. Atmosphere, social interaction, trying new dishes, not having to cook and a big one – having someone else attend to your needs. Our local Jackson servers take such good care of us, so we wanted to show our appreciation.
Recently, we asked you, our loyal readers, to nominate then vote for your favorite servers during Eat Jackson’s Love Your Server Month. The competition was a close one!
Now that the votes have been tallied, we’re excited to reveal who you selected as the cream of the crop in the service industry.
