Jay's has a wonderful breakfast. They have eggs, omletes, pancakes, breakfast meats, and wonderful biscuits. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also have a drive thru. If it is chicken you are hungry for they have the best. They also have the best chicken livers in town. If you like chicken livers you have to try them.... More

We can vouch for their breakfast, as we looked all over town, & finally found this place. The facility, seating, & serving isn't in a class with their food. We got their WESTERN OMLET, with CHEESE, & it was great. The biscuits were very good, & the hash browns were a little greasy. We hope to return for their lunch.

Nice little chicken place with a menu and a buffet if you want more to eat. Has livers, gizzards, black eyed peas and the usual fare to choose from. Chicken is good and dark meat is on buffet. Like white meat order at the counter

I have tried this place three times now for breakfast. They do a very nice job in such a small but nice area. Food is good, service is good. Nice sized portions and very reasonable prices. I would visit again.

I had people in Sikeston tell me just how good their fried chicken was and they aint lyin'. This is not a fancy place. But they have amazing fried chicken and a nice simple salad/food bar. Count on taking a bucket home with you...it's a long drive back to St Louis!!!

The chicken was light and crispy on the outside and very juicy and flavorful on the inside. We had the buffet and got some really good veggies...black eyed peas, okra and tomatoes, spinach, mashed potatoes, etc...all of it was delicious.

Super-disappointing! Yucky food and service! We often choose places to eat based on Trip Advisor reviews. This time we felt REALLY let down. We were told the buffet was closed because the heat lamps were out and they couldn't keep the food hot. That's fine, but it did not inspire our confidence to watch the restaurant employees move all of... More

Okay, so I tried some great chicken before being a country gal myself, well let me tell you about Jay's. I must first off share that I have indulged in Gus's Fried chicken known as the best fried chicken in the world and was greatly disappointed. It by no comparison out ranks Jay's Fried Chicken in the small town of... More
