A family-run business that is a treat, and a hidden gem, but you'll know when you've found it...you will see the big chicken out front! Breakfast is great, yoy can have bacon, eggs, sausage, bisquits, etc. Lunch and dinner are delicious. I recommend the chicken...More

We had a very good breakfast here. I only had a biscuit with the fried chicken breast but it was enough and really tasty. The menu is large and varied for breakfast.

Chicken is good but buffet only has dark meat. If you like to eat off styrofoam plates and plastic forks, this is for you. I thought when folks go back for more food they should have new clean plates, but this was not the case...More

This has been a family favorite for over 38 years. Really good fried chicken. They serve a fillet sandwich with their homemade sauce that is really good. They also serve breakfast here. Very casual place to eat. They have a lunch and dinner buffet.

Very crispy. The gizzards were so tender and peppery. Biscuits were very good as well. But for take out they did not provide butter. Cole slaw was excellent. The restaurant was very easy to find for someone passing through.

We have enjoyed our breakfasts at Jay's. The service and food is really great. It is the one time of the year that my husband has bacon, eggs and toast. I always enjoy eating at Jays and especially enjoy the pancakes

Jay's is another restaurant out of town once local residents visit. The breakfast line during the weekend at the drive through is long but very fast. If you want Fried Chicken on Sunday you better get there before the local churches dismiss. The food is...More

It's a favorite in town. I am a fan of the breakfast menu although the fried chicken is good. One of the few places in town to get breakfast that is not fast food. The service is good. Carry out or eat in. Good size...More
