We have enjoyed our breakfasts at Jay's. The service and food is really great. It is the one time of the year that my husband has bacon, eggs and toast. I always enjoy eating at Jays and especially enjoy the pancakes

Jay's is another restaurant out of town once local residents visit. The breakfast line during the weekend at the drive through is long but very fast. If you want Fried Chicken on Sunday you better get there before the local churches dismiss. The food is consistent, the staff is friendly and courteous.

It's a favorite in town. I am a fan of the breakfast menu although the fried chicken is good. One of the few places in town to get breakfast that is not fast food. The service is good. Carry out or eat in. Good size carry out portions. You will likely be satisfied.

Their biscuits are delicious! The biscuits are nice and moist and not dry. The prices are reasonable and the staff is friendly!

Great buffet with a great variety of vegetables to choose from. The chicken was great as well as all the other items. We will definitely go back.

We stopped in on a Saturday around lunch time. The chicken we got at the counter was hot and juicy, but not overly flavorful. The buffet was not well stocked, the chicken thighs and legs were warm. The corn bread was inedible, but the biscuits were tasty. The bathroom was disgusting, toilet wouldn't flush, no paper towels and it was... More

Been here twice. Food pretty good. It's kind of a cross between a sit down restaurant and a fast food place. I haven't eaten there for lunch - just breakfast a couple times. I would like to try their advertised menu items - chicken. But okay on breakfast. You won't be let down.

We go for the biscuits there the best, anywhere!. The gravy is just ok, could use a little more sausage flavor. Chicken is very good,best in the area.

We visited Jay's for lunch. The food was good but nothing I would drive out of my way for. The chicken was crispy and tasted very good but was not very hot. The buffet was priced right ($6.95) for the variety of foods provided. I would say give it a shot if you would like a very local place to... More
