If you want to feel like your eating home cooked food this is a great place to eat! Always a good selection of veggies!

Like a blast from the past. An old fashioned diner that has been in the same location for dozens of years. A place where the old money and the new meet and greet, and enjoy plates of old fashioned southern cooking, with tons of veggie choices. I have been there for both breakfast and lunch, and can't decide which was... More

For the best lunch specials in town, this place cannot be beat! It has been around forever and the reason is the food is AWESOME! Finest country cooking in the city! Long-term employees with down-home smiles and friendly attitudes serving up the best Southern cuisine you can find. This place is a MUST whenever we visit Meridian. If you have... More

Have ate here several times and absolutely love it - it's all home cooked. And the pie is to die for!!! Only problem is - it's only open Monday - Friday until 2:00. Wish it was open on the weekend!

I found Jean's to be the type of mom&pop restaurant that I look for in all the cities I visit . The food is seasoned and cooked to perfection, serve is friendly.

Although this restaurant is open for both breakfast and lunch, my recommendation is for the wonderful experience of their breakfast. Coupled with warm welcomes from the staff and other customers, you will get one of the best "home-cooked" meals you ever had. Top it off with coffee and/or juice and the experience is so good that you will be assured... More

It's like a trip back to the early 70's. From the minute we walked in we were stared at by customers and staff. Our waitress was friendly, but the others distaste for our presence was obvious. The food was ok at best. I had the veal cutlet with three sides of mac and cheese, rice and gravy, and fried okra.... More

I don't like sitting at plain long tables and I'm a bit of a snob about how a restaurant looks. This one is just vanilla which doesn't appeal to me; however, Jean's is a favorite in Meridian because the food is great. It is right downtown and has many "regulars" who go there for breakfast and lunch daily I think.... More

Found this "Gem" using "Google" on our drive home from Florida. What a GREAT find!. Fabulous home style cooking, friendly service and FAST!. It's it downtown Meridian. They have a "Daily" menu so the food they prepare for the day is fresh and has that wonderful home style taste. This place is WORTH the stop!

While on jury duty, we were required to eat at Jean's, and I was really disappointed with the food and service. To be fair, they were busy, and it was almost noon. But. . . still it took a long time for even our drink order to be taken, much less our lunch order. I ordered red beans and rice... More
