Jack’s Southern Comfort FoodThere is simply something magical about the great taste of southern comfort food. When you are famished and tired of eating fast food; you want something to hit the spot. Perhaps a bowl of homemade mac ‘n cheese, freshly picked peas or fluffy buttermilk biscuits could be the fix you need to help you relax and forget about your work day.

It helps to eat foods that are prepared with ingredients from local sources. If nothing else it makes you feel good about eating well. There is one restaurant in Dallas that understands how important local foods are to helping its patrons feel good about eating well.  Jack’s Southern Comfort Food is a family business with a mission to serve locally farmed produce, cage free organic eggs, pure butter and locally produced dairy. They prepare it in a way that feels like it just came out of your mother’s kitchen.

I asked Chef Jones why using local foods in his restaurant is important. Jones sharesd, “It is the way I grew up. It was important to my mother to find local farmers and artisans, bring home the goods and create something spectacular.”

Legendary Dallas restaurateur Scott Jones, started Jack’s Southern Comfort Food, a new restaurant, market and catering company that pays homage to this culinarian’s humble roots and his mama’s home cooking. Jones is a Texas culinary legend with a reputation for doing the best gourmet home-cookin’ outside of your mama’s and mee-maw’s houses. Drawing from his Texan and Cajun roots, Jones is known for such innovative restaurant concepts as Screen Door, Café Italia, gourmet a go-go, and Cowtown Diner.

Jack’s Southern Comfort Food will showcase samples at this weekend’s Taste of Dallas. The Taste of Dallas kicks off this Friday, July 12, 2013. You can, also, taste some of his can’t-beat-this-if-you-tried, shut-the-front-door kind of biscuit recipe at the family restaurant located at 1905 Greenville Avenue, where the sweet smell of home-cooked goodness wafts through the air. But you have to hurry, the restaurant will move to a new location and serve their last brunch on July 28, 2013.
