We live locally and frequently visit this restaurant. They recently moved to Abingdon. Their new address is 115 Charwood Dr, Abingdon, VA and phone number is (276) 525-4999. Open for lunch, dinner and also have a sports bar. Menu has something for everyone. My favorite is their burgers. My husband likes their club sandwich and fried oysters.

My husband (who is a down home cookin' kind of guy) just loved this place. From the very friendly staff/owners to the yummy coffee and breakfast, it's definitely our "go to" place while in Bristol. We were sad to learn that they are not open for dinner, though. We wanted to have dinner here, too!

JJ's is the best restaurant in Bristol. My husband, family, and I eat there all the time. I've tried so many different things on the menu and everything is always good. On Friday nights they have all you can eat catfish and it is delicious! They also have seafood platters (you can choose two between catfish, shrimp, oysters and they... More

This place is just an average, family run restaurant. The food was bland. Everything needed seasoning. They seem to have an old clientele so maybe the food is bland for a reason!

We stayed over in Bristol on our way to Atlanta and had breakfast at JJ's. We were welcomed immediately and graciously by our waitress, Terry. The diner had us feeling like regulars tho' we had never been there before. The atmosphere is very casual and the menu full of delicious choices. I had my usual eggs over easy (cooked to... More

Good basic meat + 3 with homemade flair. Also specialties from LA. Good value and close to the interminable Exit 7.
