I love the decor of the place. Very nice atmosphere, especially for Henderson. Pizza was so so, but not terrible. Menu had very little choices. I was hoping for chicken parm, but didn't see it on the menu. Also, the day we were there the full menu was not available, only pizza, so wouldn't have mattered if they did make chicken parm, I wouldn't be able to have it.
Here's the real deal tho. No nice dining establishment will make it in Henderson. There will be nothing but fast food and country cafes in Henderson because Freed Hardeman controls this town. Their beliefs are forced down the throats of everyone that lives in this county. Some folks would enjoy a glass of wine or even a beer with their meal. Another thing, if an adult wants to have adult interaction and enjoy an alcoholic beverage, they must go to Jackson. Teenagers have nothing to do here at all, except ride the streets and do drugs. If they aren't star athletes, they are nothing in this town. Would be nice to be able to enjoy happy hour with others somewhere closer to home. I realize that most of the other counties surrounding this one are also dry counties. I believe people need to leave Henderson once in a while to see how the rest of the country does things. There will never be anything in the south, and we will continue to be overweight and poor, because we don't have sense enough to see past the Bible Thumpers. The tax dollars are all going to Jackson, because we all figured out long ago that if you are gonna be eating at a nice dining establishment or having happy hour somewhere with friends that we must drive an hour roundtrip. I grew up in this po dunk town, but have traveled the world. The mentality of these people around here beats all I ever saw. Cut off your own noses to spite your faces. Even Jesus liked a good glass of wine with his meals. However, they just will tell you it wasn't really wine, it was grape juice, lol. This town is as bad as the one in the movie footloose. Reckon they will put me in jail if I decided to shake my tailfeathers somewhere on the street? Pathetic! Look at the growth of neighboring counties, they have seen the light. Henderson and Hardin counties for sure have decided they wanted to keep their tax dollars, and not send them all to Madison county.
Freed don't control alcohol in Henderson. The citizens would have to vote it in. Back around 80 it tried to vote out beer. The people voted to keep beer sales in town. I don't support Freed but they don't control things like a lot of people think. The city board and county commissioners are the ones that run things. I DON'T SUPPORT FREED either.

I also heard from an employee that they were moving to Jackson. I think they said it would be a couple more weeks.

The great thing about Bessos is that everything is made from scratch. Even the coffee is roosted fresh. I know the cook he used to work at old town spaghetti store. A lot of their stuff they just take off a cisco truck. Just like a dinner in the frozen food section and doctored it up. When you do this there is not a lot of prep or work involved in producing the food - that why so many things can be offered on the menu and also for a lower price. Being one that used to work at a restaurant after college and attending food distributor meets - this is how a good many restraints do it. There are plenty of restaurant that function this way so if large volume cheep food is a priority I recommend chedders - they fit the bill perfectly. There is nothing more Italian than food made fro me scratch with fresh ingredients.
since you know the cook tell him he is HOT

You post this at the end of May, and less than TWO months later, it's opened up under a new name. It sounds like the staff got lied to. "All thanks in part to Dr. Frix.:)"

Bessos is terrible! Limited menu with extremely over priced items. Service was terrible and servers were rude. Management is very unorganized as our reservations were mistakenly unaccounted for. After we were told that we "didnt make reservations," they said the wait was going to be 30 minutes. We were seated 50 minutes later. On top of all this, the menu was sub par and our food took 35 minutes to come out after ordering. If you like kids meal size portions for a minimum of 15 dollars, and overpriced wine, Bessos is the place to go! If you want a good dinner i suggest avoiding Bessos.

Henderson is sad...there were so many talented young people who became high school drop outs because of who they were. They were not from the right families. Jessie Hess for example- he can sing beautifully he can play guitar, banjo, mandolin, etc better than a rock star. His dad committed suicide when he was young. Had no dad began drinking, now is dying from cancer. PJ Busby so intelligent in computer science, can do anything orphaned now in halfway house. So many artist in this town ReNaye Kennamar, James Meek, Holly Tidwell, to name a few can draw anything! This community does not support the gifted or real intelligent people. If they get free lunch etc. they are labeled as under achievers. Entrepreneurs can not make it here. Just a few people control everything. This next generation needs the towns help so they don't end up in jail paying for the lavish jail. Our schools need our tax money not the officials. We need to invest in our children. As for Dr Frix he was smart in school successful in investing & wanted to give back. Sad Besso's left here! Lymon & all of those will eventually pass. The future is our children!!!!
