I enjoyed eating here and look forward to taking my father, who loves old-fashioned diners, but I must admit that I found the burgers, fries, onion rings, and fried chicken somewhat bland when I went there with my family. The chiliburger was especially disappointing, considering it features homemade chili. The deserts and rootbeer are worth the trip, though.

Order by phone at your booth and while waiting a juicy burger, root beer cooler or delicious shrimp basket, enjoy the original paintings by Red Skelton or LeRoy Nieman. The charm of JB's is that they've refused to change their successful, 50's style ambience. if you're visiting, JB's is a must!

We've been coming here for years and they know us well. They work hard and they seem to be busy all the time, which is obviously a good thing. Your classic American diner with burgers, dogs, fries, and an assortment of other comfort foods. These guys are great!

You probably seldom have great expectations for a drive in restaurant. If you are in Greeley, CO...hold on to your hat! J.B.'s did NOT disappoint. Expectations were not high, mind you...but I had a small cheeseburger, fine onion rings, a root beer, AND one of the best Fried Chicken Thighs I ever tasted...(Do not judge! :-)) Truly amazing flavors, and...

Most people who have had their deep fried shrimp love them. The shrimp is big not medium like you get at most restaurants. The fried chicken is to die for and I even like the chicken livers.

Many come for the shrimp that are hand battered daily. Amazingly good. Others come for the root beer floats or the pie. Most things on the menu are very good. You can eat at the drive-in or go inside where you sit in a booth and order by a phone.

Shrimp is the favorite. It is the old fashion drive-in and they close in the winter so stop by with summer visit. It is located near all roads that pass through Greeley.

Old fashio ed drive in with car hop service. Not quite the same since Clarence passed but his son is still doing a great job keeping things going. Great for things like a green river... my husband loves them. Awesome fried chicken, fried mushrooms, cheese fries, burgers. Go have a slice of the past and dont forget to ask for... More

This place is amazing. It's great when you want real drive in food, ice cream shakes and treats and fried food. It's always busy and now I see why. It's always fresh, and I love that it's family-run.
