Don't call them hot dogs! These are JK's famous Texas Weiners. They have been around for ages and are the best around. Other great items on the menu also.First timers let the waitstaff build you a weiner. A wonderful family owned restaurant.

We had a delicious lunch there! My friend ordered a turkey club and I had a hamburger. Wonderful! Our waitress served us promptly and was very kind. This is a great place to go for immediate and friendly service.

For a quick bite, breakfast, lunch or dinner, this place is conveniently located. Consistently good food. Note: when it's busy, the restaurant can be loud.

Took my mother in law to her favorite JK's for lunch. Our waitress took our order, we waiting about 20 minutes for hot dogs (really?). When she delivered our food, I placed an order 'to go' for my husband. We finished eating. We waited. We...More

I went with a meat eater so I all I got was a grilled cheese and curly fries. Both were fine but nothing outstanding. I would really recommend the grapenut custard, a flan-like dessert with nutty grapenut cereal inside. Get some whipped cream to make...More
