Trace is a great place for lunch and very fast service. Be there by 11:30 if you don’t want to stand in line. Have to say, the old Mac and cheese was better than the one now. No complaints.

Sometimes I just want to eat veggies. Other times fish or maybe a salad. It's all here along with daily specials. Food is good, service is fast!

There are so many good quality places to eat in the Madison/Ridgeland Area. Unfortunately, Trace Grill is not one of my favorites. It is a pretty standard hang out for ball teams and can get pretty loud. The food is ok but nothing special.

It's a Tuesday night we came here for dinner. Great atmosphere and vibe. I had the Minnesota hamburger and my husband had country fried steak. Both were delicious and you have to try the onion rings! Service was great and staff was friendly.

Awesome home-style country cooking. Great atmosphere, great interior, great service, great food. What could be better? Well, the location is not great (a bit hard to locate from Hwy 51) and the parking situation can be difficult to manage, but it is worth it.
