I admit, I haven’t been there in a long time. A loooong, long time… But I will be back pretty soon. It happened like this…
Lunch was meant to be the way Two Sisters does it. You want meat and 3? You got it. Great bread? Yep. Fried Chicken? Done. I was impressed at the well oiled machine that we witnessed. This place has been a landmark on Congress Street in downtown Jackson for years. These ladies know how to do it. I was re-acquainted with their cooking at Taste of MS where the Two Sisters bread pudding won hands down (in my book anyway).
So what did we eat? Well I had the country fried steak in tomato gravy. It was delicious and tender. I nestled it up with a side of black eyed peas and green beans. Angel Biscuits were like those Sister Schubert rolls with a little more soul and substance. They are also used in the bread pudding. More on that later.
I also tried the fried chicken my wife ordered… and it was light and tasty. I hear they take the skins of the chicken, and it’s never frozen only fresh. Could have something to do with how fresh it tastes…. You can’t argue with your taste buds on that one.
If you haven’t been down the end of Congress Street to visit, it’s time you repent, and come to the light.
Food: A++ Spot on. I had a feeling it would be this way, but was not disappointing in the least. Everything was served hot, homemade salad dressings, and the Angel Biscuits were, well, heavenly. The perfect lunch.
Atmosphere: They don’t make places like this anymore. The rocking chairs on the front porch make Cracker Barrel look like a cheesy chain. A house that was built in 1902, in the heart of historic Downtown Jackson… This place is the real deal, and the ladies that run it are a true southern delight to visit with as well.
Special thanks to Diann for inviting us in.
