I manage Dorothy Moore who started singing on Farish Street at the Alamo Theater about age 12. We often stop for lunch or dinner at Big John's as it is known locally. Big John started the business selling from the street. I think, in the 4th generation now, it's still good and a great experience. White folks in Jackson don't know this place but it's great, atmosphere, food & price although word is getting out. Take out or stay in you'll have the real deal. My choice is the NO HOT sausage sandwich (smokes) but they have tamales too. Once when Dorothy was away I sent her a dozen for a special holiday! The carrier said everyone on the plane asked her about the package.
