The focaccia is WONDERFUL. It's the main reason I love basil's. The cheese steak on it is my favorite!

A favorite place for lunch when in Fondren. The chef salad with the homemade deviled egg is so good you may have to order an extra egg! The pizza is fresh and delicious. In fact, you can't go wrong with anything you order. A tiny place with a great reputation!

I love Basil's and I even fight the parking lot to eat there. They have a tomato basil soup and Pimento Cheese BLT that are out of this world.

The food here is wonderful!! I have eaten here before and will again when in the area. Conveniently located in the middle of downtown Jackson, five minute walk from the Marriott hotel. Not a lot of signage, it is in the commercial looking building right across the street from the white brick fence of the Governor's mansion.

There also other businesses (including eateries) located... More

Basil's is one of my favorite restaurants in Jackson. It's great for simple lunch. I enjoy a veggie panini with the tomato soup. There's a variety of other sandwiches to choose from as well. There's even an Elvis which is peanut butter and banana.

I love the sandwiches at Basil's. The bread is delicious. I am not sure what sandwich I got, but it has olive salad and I added pesto mayo.
