We stopped in Auntie Skinners for lunch on Saturday. They were very crowded but we found a table against the wall. The tables are very close together and you can’t walk between them. Our server would stand on the other side of a chair at...More

We got there as they closed the kitchen. They were able to deliver nachos and salad anyways. Great suggestions on their selection. Live music on our second night. The locals were so welcoming. A really wonderful time.

Whenever I take family or friends to Jefferson for the first time I take them to Auntie Skinners for a good meal. The staff is always very helpful and friendly. It's an hour drive for me but it's worth it.

Great atmosphere. Chicken fried steak is fantastic. The steaks are nothing special but they are good. Smoking inside restaurant is allowed so beware.

The food servings are generous and the service was good. My husband had the half catfish basket, it was more than he wanted but tasty. I had the shrimp poorboy sandwich, I could only eat half, and was very good. We will stop by again...More

We haven't visited Jefferson for a few years and came in on a Sunday nite. Nearly everything was closed down for dinner except Auntie Skinner's. We had visited a few times in the past, and had been pleased then. The ambiance has changed a bit...More

Yes, we are a smoking establishment. Probably the last one in Texas. We strive to make everyone happy but unfortunately not always easy to do. We do have certain areas at times that are smoke free.
