Visiting family and this place fit us in on a busy Saturday night. The pizza was great, so was the service. I don't mind paying a premium price for premium products and service. Thanks. Mmmmmmm good!

Green Goddess dressing over mesclun greens? Oh, my! Accompanied by a pizza slice from the three daily pizza specials? Sublime! When I'm alone or just with my husband, I... More

Excellent pizza; always freshly made. Wish they offered more varieties. Waiters friendly and knowledgeable. Sometimes a little hectic with young kids, but that's the kind of place that kids love. Also excellent salads. Least terrific things are the non-pizza entree offerings.

Fantastic New York Style Pizza in the Fondren neighborhood of Jackson. Great for after church, after the game or after work. After all, its the brainchild of Jackson restaurateurs, Jeff Good and Dan Blumenthal.

Sal & Mookie's is a great place for any sort of meal, from grabbing beers and watching the game to having a family dinner. My favorite pizza is the 4 Train with chicken. I love their happy hour deals, especially the $6 beer flight. The staff is always courteous. The Pie Lounge (the bar at Sal & Mookie's) is sit... More

Hi Rich! We hate that you didn't enjoy your experience at Sal & Mookie's - Biloxi. The Biloxi location just opened the second week of April, so they are definitely getting used to their sea legs down there on the coast! I'm sure they would love to have you back and show you that the food is definitely worth a... More

We went with our daughter, her husband and our three grandchildren. Very good pizza. You can order one of their specialty pizzas or create your own with just about any toppings you could want. Delicious! Of course they have other tasty items on the menu also. Everyone was pleased. We will definitely go there again. ☺

Every time we go to Sal & Mookie the food, atmosphere, and service is excellent. I usually get the special. The green goddess dressing is wonderful. I would recommend to anybody visiting Jackson.
