Good food good prices

We recently had a large group event at Jacks. The food was great and service very friendly. There were some mixed up orders and wait time for kids food was long but we were a large group. Worth visiting.

I've lived in Johnson City for most of my life and consider Cootie Browns to be one of the best restaurants in our area. Having said that, Jack's City Grill, owned by the same owners as Cooties, is nothing more than a last minute choice for me. Jack's has one advantage over Cooties. It stays open until 11 on Friday...

We love Cootie Browns, knowing they also owned Jack's, we knew we were not taking a chance on the quality of food and service. We were not disappointed. We both had the jack burger, we liked it.

Greasy, overpriced, and the manager didn't even care we decided to leave. I won't gross you out with the details, but we will definitely never go back, inspect your food if you chose to dine there!

I ordered the Philly Burger and was very disappointed. I ordered it medium and it came out fully cooked and dry. I told the manager and he told me something very interesting. He told me that with the "Jack" burgers even tho they cooked them how they're ordered, they just didn't get a pink center, something about the meat they... More

We honestly wanted to try something new- so we drove up and down the street by the mall until something jumped out at us. So glad Jack's did! The food was great from appetizer to finish. For an appetizer we got the ultimate nachos, and they were great. I got the chimichangas they were great. My Mammaw got the barbecue... More

Very cute restaurant. So much to look at. However, I had crab cakes and they tasted like filler, not crab.

Pretty bad food. Taste like it all came from the frozen section and quickly microwaved. Small portions and not fresh (chicken chimachanga and Hawaiian chicken sandwich ordered). Go elsewhere.
