Sal & Mookie’s Gift Card

Sal & Mookie’s hand-tossed pizza and homemade ice-cream have become a favorite combo for many Jackson area residents. Giving your child a gift card so he or she can choose when to go to the restaurant and which treat to choose adds a special kind of excitement. Perhaps your child will want to use the gift card to invite a friend to join too! It would be a delicious and memorable night for everyone involved. Plus, a gift card fits nicely in a stocking in case you’re still doing your Christmas shopping. Did you know buying a gift card directly supports not one, but multiple local restaurants: Sal & Mookie’s, BRAVO!, and Broad Street? Buy your gift card at the restaurant at 565 Taylor Street in Jackson or buy it online and have it delivered by email, phone or by mail.
