You don't go here for health food, you go here for American hamburgers and french fries and milk shakes done well, and this place does not disappoint. A big part of the fun was an older African American man full of life who went table to table making balloon animals for the kids of all ages. The place is noisy,... More

We were not impressed. The staff not keen to serve. The food was bland. The best thing was the strawberry shake !

Now the food quality has dropped and the servers really don't have any idea what the word service means...I give this place a terrible rating overall because thats how... More

We went in around 6 pm on a Friday evening and the place was crowded. All the tables were taken up so we went and sat directly at the counter.

First thing, manager with the blonde curly hair and the young guy manager gave the best service I had very seen. They had an amazing attitude, always laughing and they sure do love to dance! Now for the restaurant.... The owner needs to remodel the whole store! They don't know how to manage it! Once I came with my daughter... More

Decided to stop in for a quick burger on a Monday @ 3:00 pm. I sat at the counter and waited 10 minutes before someone decided to hand me a greasy menu. I asked for water (another several minutes). My fries came in 15 minutes. Fries were room temperature. I did get warm fries once my burger arrived. Burger was... More

Had not been to JR in years. My wife says there's always flies.I think she exaggerates based on one bad experience we had at another location. So since this time it was only may teenage daughter and me, we decided to give it try. We loved it. Great burger, good fries, and those shakes! The crew singing and dancing is... More

Food is very bad. Food products are not fresh and they need to work in keeping the restrooms clean. The service from the servers is better than the food but they have to manage themselves to assist multiples tables The food taste dry like is been sitting long under the hot line.... there is no manager around
