Brace yourselves if you're a newbie. You will walk into a time warp that will feel like you've happened upon someone's tight kitchen table --with six stools. That someone is Jodie Royston, owner, barker, bellower, teller of how you shouldn't season anything on your plate...More

Reminds me of an old fashion "greasy spoon". A lot like the old non-healthy food Mom used to make. Ample servings and not over prices.

I had never tried Jodie's, but had walked by frequently and was intrigued by all of the happy diners lounging on the sidewalk in front of the tiny little restaurant. Today I walked by and poked my head in, and was immediately taken in hand...More

Welcome to the East Bay's best kept Secret!Jodie's has been at the same location for over 24 years. It's an Albany treasure. When you visit for the first time you'll be given the "orientation" speech. "What's on the wall isn't in the menu and what's in the menu isn't all there is. If you don't see what you want, ask Jodie." Vegetarian? All dishes are available with veggie substitutions. Jodie's famous fried chicken is temporarily unavailable on Saturdays and Sundays. But don't miss the creamy grits on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays! New item available on Wednesdays and Thursdays, Jodie's Soup of the Day with Parmesan Toast and a Soda for $6.50 Plus Tax!Like the sign on the wall says "It's better to serve 1 person 10 times, then 10 people one time."
