Home / Culture / Cherokee Inn


Though dive bar might sounds derogatory to some, it’s the perfect term for your neighborhood hangout. It’s not as formal as some places, but when you walk in, you feel at home. This year, the Cherokee Inn earned that the title for Jacksonians.

While it’s only been in its current location since 2003, Cherokee Inn has earned its way into the stomachs and hearts of many in Jackson with affordable drink options and great-tasting food.

The restaurant has established itself as a venue and juke joint with some of the best plate lunches in town. Whether it’s the Monday chicken and dumplings or Thursday roast beef, Cherokee Inn offers home cooking, served with a side of pool tables, arcade games and plated in a much loved location. —Zachary Oren Smith
