Chicken breast on biscuit

It's seriously like a piece of Heaven in your mouth! The Chicken breast sandwich on biscuit bread, with special sauce is amazing, but the food here is very expensive. The sandwich is almost $5 and that's not including fries or a drink! I would go at least twice a week if they went down on all... read more

Went in the middle of the afternoon. Their buffet was over $9 and the chicken was cold and greasy. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

I travel to Sikeston MO a few times a year and this is THE place to go for breakfast and lunch. Absolutely nothing but great food. KFC, can't touch them. Will go back every time I am there if possible. Highly recommended.

Please ignore all other reviews....the chicken is only thing worth eating. Biscuits were cold and they only put dark meat chicken on the buffet. You get ONE breast or two wings with buffet purchase. What a rip off!!!!

Jays is not a big fancy place to eat but the food is still delicious! The only place I will eat chicken gizzards and chicken livers. They are cooked just right here! No other place compares. The staff are super friendly too!

We order takeout from Jay's at least once a month. Great quality and quantity for the price. The coleslaw is my absolute favorite!

We have been wanting to try this place and we finally got a chance. The chicken is really good as are the sides. The biscuits are amazing! We will definitely be back.

While I’m a little puzzled how it ranks as Sikeston's #3 eatery according to TripAdvisor, I am not here to complain about the place. The food was decent. They have a buffet but we ordered off the menu. The seating area is not all that large and is a bit cramped. The place is apparently popular; there were few vacant... More

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
