Had an early dinner here. Nothing fancy here but as the name says they do have good home cooking though. I really enjoyed their potato salad side but everything we had was very good. Their prices are great for what you are getting. I would...recommend J Maes.More

My husband and I wanted to try some good fried chicken so thought of the new soul food place in the neighborhood. We went in and walked to the carry out 'station' area. There was a delightful young man working there and was pleasant and...helpful. The meal came with three sides so plenty to eat! I had baked chicken with greens, pintos and baked beans. My husband had wings with mashed potatoes etc. We really liked everything. The mashed potatoes didn't come with gravy so we'll ask for that next time. The prices were very reasonable and we'll definately go back. We were hoping they'd have a 1/2 fried chicken dinner but not at this time. Give them a try!More

Ate dinner here recently & it is good, classic soul food. Super good Mac n Cheese and Potato Salad. Everything homemade. Bring your appetite because you get a ton of food (for a very reasonable price). Recommend this place to soul food fans!

Took a chance on this "soul food" restaurant as strangers to Toledo, and got some truly great food. We had 3-piece chicken with gravy and an order of 3-piece fried catfish, each with three side dishes. Sides included cole slaw, baked beans, stuffing, corn, Lima...beans and mashed potatoes. What a spread! There were over 20 sides to choose from. Every item was done correctly, fresh and served hot. Our waitress Amanee answered our questions and offered suggestions, and treated us like old friends. Very professional and helpful. It was a fun meal.More

I love this place! This is a perfect example of "soul food." I have never been disappointed with whatever I've chosen and the portion sizes..........amazing. This restaurant is the best in the city for down-home cooking choices, it's the cream of the crop. Oh and...the breakfast tastes amazing too! If supported according to the reviews and word of mouth, J Mae's is well on its way to opening more restaurants in the area.More

My husband and I love the food! We always order mid week, when I can't get around to cooking. You won't be sorry I guarantee!
