In 1946, Jessie and Demas Jackson opened Mama’s Cafe in Overtown. The restaurant saw Miami’s historic Black community rise, fall, and rise again. Generations later, the family business had become legendary for its traditional soul food. In addition to Overtown, there’s a Jackson Soul Food outpost in Opa-locka; both locations offer traditional favorites, including fried catfish, smothered wings, oxtail, meatloaf, and ribs. A proper soul-food restaurant is known for its sides, and Jacksons delivers — from candied yams to fried okra, collard greens, and macaroni and cheese. New Normal: Jackson’s sells all its meats individually, so it’s easy to customize a family meal to take home.
