They have the BEST Double Hamburgers in the area. Pre-cooked weight is one pound total, finished weight is Pricelessly Great Tasting. You have to get it with Lisa's Chips (homemade potato chips with dipping sauce). These are equally as good. Our office will order from Lisa's about every other month. Can't wait till next order. They serve home cooked meals,... More

There are limited dining options in Jefferson City, but Lisa's came highly recommended. There's nothing fancy about this place, but the food is basic and good. Some in our party had strict dietary restrictions and our waitress cheerfully answered all questions, even asking for clarification on fine points from the kitchen. Everyone at our table was happy with their choice.... More

We ate dinner twice because we enjoyed the meal so much when we were staying at Exit 417 in Dandridge and visited my sister in Jefferson City. Breakfast anytime and had good country cooking.

Went for lunch and order the smoked half chicken. The waitress came back and said they was out of smoked chicken. So I got smoked turkey salad. She brought it out the ranch was like water and the turkey they put on it was so nasty I couldn't eat it. I know what smoked turkey taste like and that was... More

We eat here all the time, great country food. They also have awesome burgers, if your really hungry get the 1/2 lb double! Breakfast is great as well, great staff. Owner is always super nice.

We stopped here by chance because the parking lot was full one afternoon at lunch. We had sandwiches and fries. Great atmosphere and service. We will definitely return and try new dishes!

Hubby and I have enjoyed breakfast here several times. Today was the first time for dinner. We were not disappointed. One of today's specials ( there were 3) was chicken and dumplings. They were absolutely delicious. Thick broth, light fluffy drop dumplings, bite size pieces of chicken: heavenly. Hubby had a 12 ounce chopped steak with grilled onions and mushrooms.... More

If you are in Jefferson City and want a good, home cooked meal, head to Lisa's. I have been several times and have not been disappointed. The fried pork chops are excellent as well as the BBQ and country fried steak. The vegetables are also good.

I visit this restaurant at least once a month. I was there recently and Lisa noticed I could not read the menu and handed me her reading glasses(I do not know Lisa). This is a place you get home cooking for a great price and are really treated like family. Not fancy but great home cooking.
