We were traveling from NoLA back to Memphis and found this gem. I am fortunate enough to have eaten a lot of original NYC pizza and this is right up there with the real thing. Fontina cheese, prosciutto, great vege toppings and homemade everything. And they make almost all of the salad dressings in house. If you are traveling through... More

We made a trip to Jackson for a DECA competition and had heard so many great things from this restaurant. I can personally say they can quickly serve a large group (14) and the staff is so friendly, we will eat here again next year and try out the one near us.

Went around 2:30. Was seated immediately. Nobody came to our table for about 10-15 minutes. The manager came and asked if anybody has taken care of us, and we said no. he then offered to pay for our appetizer. And he even came and refilled our drinks later on. Very nice man. Our waitress (Lisa I think) was friendly and... More

Good pizza but employees need training on cleaning up tables in timely manner. Also training in basic service skills. We ate outside nice day but tables all around us was a mess for most of our time there. Makes you wonder what kitchen looked like?

Love, love, love! I enjoy this little spot when my girls and I are out shopping and want a great place to either outside or indoors. Great selection of food and the pizza is GRRREAT! Highly recommend for lunch. As always I'm a stickler for great customer service and never out of the 9 years visiting.

So this is a good place for kids and UMC lunch crowd. Its5a bit loud at times, but it is always clean. The kitchen is open to the viewers so you can see food safety precautions in action. The pizza isn't great, and it isn't bad. The food and service is however consistent. But for the name, "The Donald" is... More

The lunch special offers a slice of pizza, a small salad, and a drink. I chose the meat lovers option and it was fantastic! This was my first visit to Sal & Mookie's and I'll definitely be back!

All I did was stop for ice cream and man the menu is to die for. Over the top sundae's with all your favorite toppings made the way you want. I'm sure the food is good as I saw a couple people in there eating but for sure stop by for the ice cream

My husband and I attended a surprise birthday party for one of his co-workers. The food was okay. We had pizza, which was okay - and I love pizza! The space was very crowded and noisy. Our server was very good. We couldn't help but notice that he was visibly frustrated by something that was going on away from our... More
