Wards


I have many traditions that I adhere to; most for no reason other than it is just something that I like to do.   One of these traditions is that on my way to the coast, I always stop and eat at the Wards in Hattiesburg.  Wards is a small chain of restaurants located in Mississippi.  It is an enigma to me, because there isn’t one here in Jackson, the largest city in Mississippi.  Wards is famous for its “Big One” a burger with secret sauce and chili, it also is known for its homemade root beer.   I think the reason I am so fond of this restaurant, is that it is a Mississippi chain, something we can call ours.

I've not heard of Wards where they make hamburgers! I do remember Montgomery Wards, though! :-)

Thank you for your kind comment!

I think most of us have a touchpoint that makes us feel like home.

Ohhhhhh....I'd be all about the root beer!

Pass on the meats, though. I'm sure it's good--however...

I'm originally from Chicago and there are so many local chains there that I have to go to when we're in town. They're almost ubiquitous there and such a part of the local culture.

...and homemade root beer? Is the best root beer.

We can do with a couple of these traditional American diners around here.
