Great chicken and the best coleslaw!

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

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 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

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
