Nothing much has changed from this drive in. Brings back old memories being in the stationwagon getting the 25 cent baby burgers family fries and gallon of rootbeer. Great memories good food

Just what I was looking for an old school diner, not like Sonic. You can order anything from hamburger to a grilled ham and cheese sandwich (my favorite) to healthy items and ice cream. While we chose to sit in the car and eat, many people went into the restaurant. The one drawback is it is closed in the winter.... More

Memories of my grandmother bringing this over for dinner may taint my modern review, but only in a restaurant that has been around since 1937. It is my first stop in returning home. I no longer get the basket, I go for the shrimp alone. I try to bribe Rod for the recipe of the tartar sauce ever since I... More

Nice drive in with the best root beer. The pork tenderloin is not that good(just a pork patty no breading and no seasoning) but the burgers are good. Try the root beer.

Order at the car when parked (old style drive-in) or come inside and sit down in the A/C comfort. Order via phone at your table and someone will bring it out when ready. Great large butterflied shrimp. The 'family' style onion ring basket is for 3-5 people and tasty. Everything was delivered piping hot. Great friendly place.

Great food, local people. They grow their own beef. I love the burgers and beer battered pinion rings. I have been going here for ages.

I enjoyed eating here and look forward to taking my father, who loves old-fashioned diners, but I must admit that I found the burgers, fries, onion rings, and fried chicken somewhat bland when I went there with my family. The chiliburger was especially disappointing, considering it features homemade chili. The deserts and rootbeer are worth the trip, though.

Order by phone at your booth and while waiting a juicy burger, root beer cooler or delicious shrimp basket, enjoy the original paintings by Red Skelton or LeRoy Nieman. The charm of JB's is that they've refused to change their successful, 50's style ambience. if you're visiting, JB's is a must!

We've been coming here for years and they know us well. They work hard and they seem to be busy all the time, which is obviously a good thing. Your classic American diner with burgers, dogs, fries, and an assortment of other comfort foods. These guys are great!

You probably seldom have great expectations for a drive in restaurant. If you are in Greeley, CO...hold on to your hat! J.B.'s did NOT disappoint. Expectations were not high, mind you...but I had a small cheeseburger, fine onion rings, a root beer, AND one of the best Fried Chicken Thighs I ever tasted...(Do not judge! :-)) Truly amazing flavors, and...
