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

Auntie Skinners is a "biker bar" (most of the bikers are doctors & lawyers), family restaurant and entertainment spot on the weekends. The food is actually pretty good. The only drawback is that it does allow smoking and some people would hate it. I would...More

A genuinely antique building! Tin ceilings, exposed brick, funky neon signs. Good service, and some of the best chicken salad and homemade fries we have ever tasted!

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.
