Nice, but nothing exceptional. Its a small chain, typical bar fare and tv's. If you want a tap beer, don't count on anything exciting. Bud, Bud Light, Mller Lite, Coors, and for the 'microbrew' crowd, Yuengling.

Had lunch with an old friend and as usual Rucker John's was great! I had the Shrimp BLT and she had the Shrimp Wrap. Both were served quickly, looked delicious and tasted awesome. Bacon was cooked just as I like it, crisp but not hard. Order comes with one side and we both had sweet potato fries. Our plates went... More

Though we have eaten at Rucker Johns, both in Winterville and EI for years, our experience there tonight was the epitome of poor customer service. The food was very good so that was not an issue. We are a couple in our 70s. When we arrived at approximately 8:20pm we asked to be seated in a booth. The young lady... More

Always loved RJs in EI. I was thrilled when the one came to Winterville! We love RJs. The food is good, it's clean, and there are always friendly staff!

Another great meal. Ordered kid burgers, a pasta dish and a flatbread. All was very good especially the flatbread. The ranch dressing was also good and made in house. Our server, Kevin, did a great job. Appreciate a locally owned restautant.

My coworkers and I came here for lunch again and it did not disappoint. I had the chicken finger platter with the fried round chips. And I got a side salad just so I could get the honey mustard and hot bacon dressing and the flaky croissant!!!! It was so much food. I took half the chicken and fries home... More

Me and my husband had dinner and it was very good. My husband had the Cajun chicken Alfredo and I had Shrimp and Grits! We took the chicken fingers to-go and they were awesome!! We will definitely be back for the chicken fingers!!

My co-workers and I came here for lunch today and it was amazing. I ordered a chef salad with the hot bacon and honey mustard dressing and it was amazing. I know, you are thinking "a salad?" But YES it was great and the dressing was phenomenal (and was the entire reason I got a salad) My coworkers ordered chicken... More

We eat at Rucker Johns often and never have had a bad meal. They have the best salads and the best home made soup I have ever had. Also the very best salmon and tuna of anywhere I have ever eaten. They have specials each night which are really good. Wednesday night pizza is wonderful. Besides nightly food specials they... More
