We stopped in this establishment a couple of times for a beer or two -- it seems that this may be the place that locals come to meet-up. Really nice young girl tending bar -- she was really attentive. I'd say it was pretty average on cost -- good selection of beers on draft and bottled.

Didn't eat but did drink. Awesome bloody Mary. Wasn't Smokey while I was there. Few people there eating and it looked great. I wish we would have had time to eat! All of Jefferson is a must see but a stop here is a must!

On weeknights, and slow tourist times, this place seems to be the only restaurant open. They also stay open late, so it's convenient. It is a night club/bar that is frequented by motorcycle enthusiasts - like us! They feature live music, and karaoke nights, and their menu is varied. The burgers are quite good. Perhaps better than their hot plate... More

The burgers were GREAT! Just a dive bar, but the service was good and food was better! We would go again!

Had lunch on a weekday, since I have heard that weekends can be crazy at this restaurant. Auntie Skinner's was nowhere near capacity but had quite a few diners, with a fairly steady flow of customers. Our order was promptly taken; food took about twenty minutes. I wasn't looking for fast food, and the food was worth the wait. Want... More

We visited this place on our way back home from vacation. The building is huge and you can tell it holds a lot of local stories and history. We visited after the local lunch hour so it was not crowded. I can imagine it must hold a big Friday and Saturday night party crowd. Our wait staff got us seated... More

Food was excellent. I got the chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, and fried okra. I ordered a dinner salad to start with but it didn't come until the main dishes arrived, which was a little disappointing. Also since it's a bar people were allowed to smoke anywhere, so there was a man smoking right next to us and it was... More

I guess I should have known when I walked in and saw the big bar at the front it would be a bar. I'm not used to that from the Dallas area. Most places that serve food are non-smoking. The food was great. Fun stuff to look at on the walls. If I visited I might go there for lunch... More

Auntie Skinner's has a lot of good memories for me. I don't usually go to restaurants where smoking is prevalent but I have learned if you pick your time, it's not so bad. Not only that, the staff is courteous and efficient and the kitchen produces some great food. The chef will be inventive if you have a reasonable request.... More

We ordered chicken fingers and chicken fried steak. Both dinners were greasy and tasted burnt from the oil being to hot.
