Great hamburger; beans were too spicy for me; good banana pudding

Not a sit down place; staff was accommodating with special requests. It was just before closing yet food was hot.

Great Barbeque from this place. The pulled pork and the brisket are to die for. Not to mention the burger named the M.O.A.B. good food with good service.

I would give this great little place a 5 if they had an area to sit inside. However, I did not mind at all sitting on the deck and takeout is probably the most common approach. Swiss and Mushroom Burger Baby!!

I try to find the best burger where ever I go and Jay Henry's burgers are better than most places I have been. From the fresh meat and vegetables, perfect buns, great combinations, and extremely reasonable prices, this is THE place to go. Alot of places claim they have the best burger. Jay Henry's doesn't claim that but, it is... More
