Older building, wonderful staff, a lot of food for the price. Hamburgers are great as well as the fries.

I had never had broasted chicken before, but I will again. Jana's is a neat little family owned spot in the style of the old drive in restaurants. They have good burgers too. Only downside is that they get really slow when they're busy.

This place must be the oldest "burger joint" in town. Locally owned and operated, no franchise crap. Employees are always nice. Closest taste to homemade you will find!

It's a burger joint. Ii know they sell other stuff but when they put it on their sign that large...that's what they do. It's an old place that some would say needs to be updated...NO! Leave it as is. It's a bit tired but that's part of the ambiance. The burgers were bigger than advertised, flavored well and very juicy,... More

I was out of town on business and checked out Trip advisor for suggestions on where to have dinner, and Jumbo House jumped out at me. I pulled up and it looked like it was once a drive-in. There were a bunch of people sitting inside, so I decided to go in and have dinner. It's like an old fashioned... More

Whenever I am driving through Columbia I stop at Jumbo House. If I have time to eat in I always get the catfish. If I am in a hurry I get one of their burgers to go. Also cannot resist their ice cream

Recently I took a client to this place for a "quick" hamburger steak plate. Serving lunch to working people should be fast, but this place was slow! Don't go here if you are on a tight schedule. I was embarrassed at what we experienced. First the untrained employee taking our order was rude and tried to overcharge for a salad... More

Have passed this place many times going back and forth between my home and my farm. Finally decided to stop in. Glad I did. Family run place with good general lunch fare. Great burgers and fries. Good fried or grilled chicken. But you can get some lesser demanded items too like grilled cheese sandwich or an egg sandwich. Fantastic service.

The place has a charm about it because its old and lends to yesteryear. It does not feel or look clean to me. The hamburgers were big in size but dry and not that good. The french fries were tasty. Girl behind counter was friendly and even brought food out to us.

The Janie burger is perfect size for a hearty appetite with fries, or just a light lunch alone. Their fries are so good too. Crispy and delicious and cooked to order. This is a home town gem that has been around a long time. And the food is the reason its so long lasting. Try their food and you'll never... More
