“Fun little family restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

While passing through middle Alabama, my wife and I happened to be in Linden, Al. at lunch time and ran across the J & K Whistle Stop restaurant. It is a delightful place with attentive staff and excellent, freshly prepared food. The salad tasted like it was fresh from the garden. The portions are large, and the price is very reasonable. There were large, framed jigsaw puzzles depicting various trains on the wall above the cashier. When I asked about them, I was told that they were completed by several locals in their 80s and 90s who enjoy getting together to complete the puzzles. This is just a very nice, friendly, family run restaurant with very good food.
