Really going down hill

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... read more

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.

Winner's Circle in Jefferson, NC is so very good that you could eat here all of the time. The atmosphere is really good. The food is awesome. This is my favorite restaurant in Ashe County, NC.

Their food was very good and they had a pretty good salad bar. Their prices were very reasonable for lunch.

There is not much to choose from in this area and this place has been closed every time we are in town. Finally got to try it and it was good.

We enjoyed a good meal at this restaurant. My husband had steak, I had an enormous baked potato. Only thing missing was a glass of wine - no alcohol available.

As the name suggests, it does have a decor reminding me of the Winston Cup NASCAR days (lot of these posters on the wall). We stopped in for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Typical breakfast menu options for a diner. Food and coffee were good... More
