AUGUSTA, GA. (WFXG) - You might travel all over the country to find a great place to dine, but there’s one hot spot in the CSRA that’s been serving up southern charm and Philly favorites for nearly two decades - and it’s growing in popularity by the day, thanks to word of mouth.

Who knew flavor town was located right here in Augusta. Jackie M's and Son Cafe is one of Augusta’s hidden gems. 

You'll quickly learn you don’t have to go all the way to Philadelphia to get a great Philly cheesesteak - especially when Jackie M and her son, Clinton Mccalla, have the greatest one in all of Georgia.

If you haven't already, you have to hit the town to find this Augusta classic. Located at 3308 Milledgeville Road, it's somewhat hard to miss. 

You’ll know you’re there when you see an artsy yellow building with as much flavor as the food - it's covered from top to bottom with "soul-tastic" artwork by local contemporary artist and muralist, Aort Reed. 

There's usually lots of people gathered outside and this group tends to have at least one thing in common. They’re not there just for the hoagies and "soul rolls." They’re there for THE Jackie M's and Son Cafe experience.

Tickle your taste buds and try a restaurant with a local flavor all made to order, hot and fresh. Serving homemade cheesesteaks and hoagies on fresh Italian rolls since 2001.

The service is great, the food is unbelievable but at the window, it’s about much more than placing an order. There’s a feeling of excellence, humor, and pride with a type of friendliness that makes you feel like family. That’s this spot’s truest "secret sauce."

With marvelous desserts made from scratch – it’s worth the drive no matter where you come from. JUST ASK THE HUNDREDS OF FOLKS ON YELP! Jackie M's and son has earned a title as an American top 100 place to eat.

Jackie’s son, Clinton, and his wife run the show now – but Jackie’s recipes still hold true. however, Clinton's famously delicious "soul rolls" sell faster than hotcakes.
