I have eaten at Jack Allen's several times and it never disappoints. The food is consistently good and the atmosphere quite comfortable. I usually get the chicken fried chicken with the green chile gravy. It has never been a disappointment as it is served with seasoned fresh vegetables and red smashed potatoes. This is a great place to take friends... More

Great selection of items, even something for the vegans in the party. Solid attentive service and willing to make changes to your order to accomodate special needs

Little brother graduated from University of Texas at Austin and we had to celebrate. He reserved a room that had a minimum guest count/bill total and we fell far short of that (dang flaky college kids). Still, they worked with us, suggesting things that would be enjoyed by our party and help us reach the minimum--- nothing was a waste.... More

A business associate and I visited Jack Allen's Kitchen in May, 2012. We had a customer visit at a semicoductor manufacturer, not far away. It was personnel at this facility who recommended Jack Allen's to us. Being from Atlanta, I loved the food selelction and atmosphere. I had the chicken fired chicken then and tried it again, July 2, 2014.... More

All around just a great restaurant! Dined outside on the covered patio as it rained! Fried Green Tomato Sliders are a must! Great Happy Hour for Apps & Drinks! A great value as well!

The food at service at this place were both great. There was a slight mix up in getting our table and we ended up not having to wait. I had the chicken fried new york strip and it was very tasty. I would absolutely go back.

We've been here twice with family and enjoyed both times. We've had to wait both times for a table, even in a non-peak time, and once had to wait a good 20-30 mins for the food. The food was unique and delicious though so we will return!

We've eaten here a couple times and love it. The fool is southern, fun and inventive. All meals start with pimento cheese with unique crackers, typically we eat so many starters we don't even need a meal. Drinks are excellent too, including the pomegranate margarita, if you don't want a traditional one. Atmosphere is great, we love sitting in the... More
