I love this place! I like home-style food, Junior's has this. Great soups, definitely home brewed, the clam chowder was like no clam chowder I have ever experienced but delicious.

Jrs. has a policy eat, pay and get out. It is great when you are working because they get you in and out during a lunch hour. However if you are in your day off they wont give you time to look at the menu. I feel too rush to enjoy my lunch.

The food always comes out hot and delicious, Carlos and staff are always looking for ways to provide you with the best customer service possible. The Lemon Herb Chicken full plate will fill any appetite. The soup or salad is and extra perk.
