“Roach Cafe”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

If you don't mind a little extra "protien" with your order, this is the place for you. The place is overrun with roaches, the tables & floors are "sticky," the staff looks like even they don't want to be there & the food tastes like it came out of a box no matter what you order. When the walls, floors & tables have those little "coffee grounds" all over them, you know the roaches have taken over.

Talked to a former waitress that used to work there for 3 years and she said "the place is filthy. If you saw the kitchen, you'd never be able to eat again." I'm thinking she's right. Blech!!

“Very Dissapointed and voting with my wallet!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Very rude staff, the grill service ran out of chicken, the table service was awful (no one visited for refills or clean-up until we flagged them down), the bathrooms were filthy and the food was fair at best! Never again.... Saw friends while we were there, and their experience was the same. Spoke to the manager.... BUT.....

“JD's Cafe”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Davis and Susan continue the fine quality of food and service that their JD Haney started in a little shotgun eatery many tears ago. JD's is a historic and fine example of quality cafeteria food in Ada and we the citizens hope to see that tradition carry on for many wonderful years to come! anyone who grew up here or has spent anytime here knows the great food and service that JD's had offered and continues to offer! Even those who have moved away and return have to make a stop in at JD's because a visit to Ada without stopping in at JD's is kust lacking in the full Ada experience! e

“Best breakfast around.”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

I've been going to JD'S, off and on since I was a child. Place hasn't changed a bit, yea the decor could use some updating but the food is great I would recommend the breakfast to get your day going but if you would rather have lunch or dinner they have it all. If your close swing in and try it. Cant beat the price you will get home cooked food at a fast food price. Chances are I'll be there.
