If you want a great hamburger steak you have to go to Old Jody’s. The people are great and the food is wonderful if you like home cooking. We have been going here over 30 years!

The best cheeseburgers in the world. Great chicken fried steak and fried chicken livers. Staff is always helpful and courteous. There is no place better than Old Jody's. P.S. - onion rings are to die for!

old and new Jodys have comparably good food (think Old is slightly better)...but think the old Jodys crowd is rougher and frankly less pleasant to be around..tables a bit crowded

We had a late lunch at Old Jody's on a recent visit to Temple. The food was tasty and the service excellent. I had the chicken fried steak, which was an actual tenderized steak, not ground meat, not too much breading. My wife had the...More
