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

It by no comparison out ranks Jay's Fried Chicken in the small town of... More

I love their chicken and biscuits with sauce!!! Their fried chicken and sides are excellent too!!!!! Breakfast is also wonderful!!!!!! I eat here all the time - the only draw back is that the drive thru can get a bit backed up.

We have been going to Jay's for several decades, and the quality of the fried chicken remains excellent. It is not a fancy place; order at the counter, pour your own drinks in paper cups, and the food is served on paper plates. No scenic view and no "atmosphere," but the clientele ranges from the very rich plantation aristocracy and... More

Anytime we leave early on a trip out of town we stop in for a chicken biscuit. This is the most tender part of breast meat, juicy on inside, crispy on outside. We sometimes have to park and wait for it when we order at drive through but is WORTH IT!! Try sauce they offer. It is delicious but get... More

Was looking for somewhere for breakfast after driving all over Sikeston, we came across Jay's so we took a chance. Food was reasonably priced, portions were good sized and food was very good.

I arrived pretty late -- just half hour before they closed. But they were friendly and welcoming. The fried chicken was great. I was a bit disappointed to get pre-fab slaw and mashed potatoes & gravy in styrofoam cups like you'd get at KFC.
