Best place for breakfast and the best place for chicken in town. Don't let the cosmetics of the building push you away!

My family stops by Jays at least once a week for a chicken biscuit. Tender, juicy chicken breast filet cooked to perfection. Easy breakfast for$4.15 (includes tax) the grand kids LOVE them and so do I!

My mother-in-law really enjoys their Sunday buffet. She says their fried chicken is the best in town. They have very good peach cobbler, too.

Jay's has the best fried chicken in Sikeston. The buffet is worth trying out. You can get one chicken breast per person when you order the buffet. We also like the chicken sandwich with their homemade mustard sauce.

Biscuits were hit and delicious!! Family had the western and ham and cheese omelet with hash browns. And eggs over easy with ham and biscuits and gravy. If you leave hungry, it's your fault. I had the western omelet and it was very good!!

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.

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 their prices!

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.
