Jackson’s serves mostly southern American food in a casual corner space on a main drag in Long Island City. You can get fried chicken and waffles, and some other comfort foods, like bacon mac n cheese. Happy hour drinks and snacks are popular here, especially when they have live music. It’s also a good weekend brunch option for people looking to chase their morning Advil and blue Gatorade with bloody marys and bacon-cheeseburgers topped with fried eggs.
