Foursquare Tips

  • Trust us, you dont want even a morsel of the Pimiento cheeseburger to go anywhere but in your mouth.
  • The service here can be REALLY terrible. But, the food's so incredible that it's worth it!
  • From that one-off Kentucky dinner (rice biscuits, pearl onion soup and mince pie) to the weekday lunch (fried chicken, greens, biscuits c. 1933), Big Jones is making history of any dining plans we had
  • The chefs pay homage to Fat Tuesday Run, in which partyers run from house to house adding to a communal gumbo pot. This pot will include chicken, ham, alligator, crawfish and who knows what else.
  • Housemade lard biscuits come topped with poached eggs and a distinctive cured-and smoked-in-house ham, simmered in Kilgus Farmstead cream and cut into thick slices.
  • The square breakfast is the best "boring" breakfast in town. Gumbo is pretty swell too.
  • Great date spot or brunch with the girls. The service is better than at most restaurants twice the price.
  • Crab cakes Benedict was amazing.
  • If its Tuesday, youll find fried chicken junkies at this Andersonville hangout, where Gunthorp Farmsbirds are served alongside greens, mashed potatoes, and cornbread.
  • Awesome bloody marys. Free beignets. Love the brunch. Eggs New Orleans!
  • This Andersonville restaurant would be worth putting on this list for its fried chicken alone, but Big Jones has so much more going on.
  • A "Louisiana Mardi Gras Odyssey" will be the theme for this year's Restaurant Week menu. Alligator and andouille sauce, crawfish etouffee, gateaux de roix (king cake) among their great options.
  • In need of an award-winning cheeseburger? You've come to the right place. Order the Pimiento Cheese Burger. perfect for a weekly lunch or dinner ritual with a cold Begyle beer from the tap.
  • The cocktails at Big Jones are worth every penny and then some. On Mondays though they're half the price, which makes everything right with the world.
  • Plan ahead! The fried chicken is delicious, but only available for lunch, and it takes 30 minutes to make.
  • If you love brown liquor - join the Bourbon Society. Try all 46 whiskeys!
  • Kirsten the hostess is a rockstar. Totally on top of the water and menus thing.
  • Yummy fried chicken salad on the back patio.
  • Most people say "Beer Me" but here you should say "Beignet Me"
  • Ginger sweet tea. Fish n grits. Eggs New Orleans. Complimentary beignets. This place is a gem among gems on Clark.
