We generally don’t lunch at Jr’s but I’m sure it’s good and definitely in line price wise. Supper too. We generally get chicken take out for our family parties. The chicken is good but the macaroni salad is awesome. So are some of the other...sides like the potato salad. We often bring the macaroni salad when we are going to contribute to some one else’s party.More

We eat here a couple times a month. They are known for great chicken and have an all you can eat buffet. This time we stopped in for a snack and ordered the corn nuggets. Oh my! Absolutely loved them. They have a thin better...crust, sweet corn inside and they could almost be dessert. Give them a try.More

JRs is a great place to eat. Chicken is very tasty and the side items compliment a meal well. They have a buffet if you want more variety. I used them for catering for my granddaughter's wedding. They delivered and took care of the presentation....The price was very reasonable and the person in charge was great to work with. I have no hesitation is recommending them for in house dining, take out and catering.More

The chicken is good, really good but not amazing. Their amazing thing there is the macaroni salad for which they're known. It has a great blend of sweet and savory, creamy and cheesy oh boy is it good. Worth the drive down by the river...to pick it up. Or you can sit down and have the diner experience. You will come away with a full belly at a decent price and who can really ask for more?More
