“Gross”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The omelette was inedible, the steak and cheese sandwich was dry and the fries were crappy.

The service was ok, but the food was disgusting and the cutlery was filthy.

No chance we'll ever go back.

“Good Ontario Local Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Jiffy was formerly Schmichael's. It found new owners about a year ago. The burger's are still excellent, beefy good and the fries better than average. We tired the small pizza. It was bigger than expected with crisp crust and generous toppings. Yum! The pies are enough to threaten any diet. This Jiffy Grill is one of three in our area. The flagship Jiffy has been at the Kingston Centre for decades and is a favourite of the 'locals'. O.k., so the Jiffy's are burger joints -- so what? Great Canadian comfort foods in a really friendly atmosphere. The day we visited Odessa the kitchen was gleaming and spotless. The only fault was the air conditioner which was aimed relentlessly at the customers, but staff were aware of it's shortcomings and eager to re-seat anyone who was chilled. Might be worth the owner adding a setting for "fan" without the chilling part.

“burgers are great avoid breakfast there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Been a few times for burgers great home made patty...love them... but avoid breakfast there..apparently the cook doesn't know how to fry eggs. over very very easy eggs are not supposed to be brown and crispy around the edges..yuck thats butter burning at too high a temperature..some one needs to show him the right way..last 3 brreakfast visits were a disaster, To add insult to injury, when I asked the server for my eggs over VERY VERY easy, and she picked up my plate with the eggs not eaten..she didn't utter a word...this is bad staff training by the owners...no excuse for cook or server not to see the order was not as ordered....I will go for lunch only from here on in
