Winner's Circle continues to shine

Linda and Dick Copas continue to offer quality dining at reasonable prices in Jefferson. Whether dropping in for breakfast lunch or dinner you know to expect quick service, with a smile and well cooked meals.

We're locals and stopped here one time. The fish and chips and hushpuppies were so overdone it was difficult to tell what might have been beneath the thick and burned breading. Both our meals were like that and a quick look around told us that everyone else's were as well. Maybe this is a local delicacy, but if you're really... More

I stopped here for lunch yesterday for the first time as I was passing through town. I was most impressed with the staff. They were friendly, professional and proficient. I even noticed the wait staff assisting with the cleaning. They offer 4 lunch specials each day that sounded really good with your choice of 2 or 3 sides. I was... More

The food at this place is off the hook good! While in Jefferson for a downhill race myself and other racers ate there! Steak was as good as it gets! And breakfast da best! Plan on eating at the Winners Circle again at next year's race and any other time I'm threw Jefferson!

Sorry Winner's Circle you are going to have to do better like you did in your early years. Food is going downhill and too expensive for lack of quality. Roast beef too much fat, fried chicken very greasy and hard to chew. Took people there from out of town and was very disappointing.Please make it better.

It's okay if you need to eat, but if you really want to enjoy your experience, you might want to try somewhere else. I found the menu bland and the cost was a little high. The hamburger for instance, is five dollars, and they want two more dollars if you want fries with that. Add your drink which is around... More

We grabbed a quick lunch, here, during our trip to the mountains. The restaurant is located in a redecorated steak house (Western Steer, or Western Sizzlin', I think.) The hot dogs are so huge, we had to eat them with knives and forks. Buffalo chips were pretty good. The prices on the menu looked to be inline with what everyone... More

In town for only 1 night after a long day.We were just running out for something quick and close to hotel.We thought this place might be ok for those requirements. The food was awesome and Amy our waitress was amazing,she treated us like long time friends or family even.We will go back here when we come back to West Jefferson.
