Since 1946, Jessie and Demas Jackson birthed what had become a multi-faceted legacy. The Jacksons established Mama’s Café, a comfort style soul food restaurant that thrived in the Overtown community and served as a foundation for a lineage of first-class establishments.
Indeed, the Jacksons raised all 12 of their children with the same core business values promoting quality food, a refreshing jazz style ambiance, and great customer service. The apple does not fall far from the generational tree.
Shirlene Jackson Ingraham propelled the family legacy at the renowned Jackson Soul Food restaurant located at 950 NW 3rd Avenue, with a second location at 14511 NW 27th Avenue where local, national, and international visitors, and celebrities flock to savor traditional soul food culinary delights such as their famous catfish and biscuits.
Jackson Soul Food welcomes all of you: the community, businessmen and businesswomen, tourists and celebrities alike- to our home away from home.
We thank you for your patronage spanning over 60 years, and we invite you to be a part of “The Soul Food Experience”.
