JR's is a great place to check out. Steaks are really good and now they're service breakfast - I was impressed. Yummy and super quick. Good stuff here!

There aren't very many places to eat-out in Brooklyn, MI, but JR's is worth repeat visits. They have several cuisine sections to the menu that offer enough changes to the menu that customers don't need to feel bored. The waitstaff is very nice and friendly, so remember to tip well.

The food here is delicious. There are food and drink specials on a daily basis. I've had their burgers, fish, pasta and chicken. The burgers were prepared to ordered with fast friendly service.

We stopped in for dinner after a nice motorcycle ride, having never been there, was excited about trying their food. I ordered the chimichanga, He ordered the wet burrito. The wet burrito was neither wet nor tasted like a burrito. very bland. My chimi was basically meat and onions in a deep fried shell. This had no mexican flair either.... More

JR's gives you something different in Brooklyn, which is nice since there really is not much too choose from. The food & service are good. Can be great depending on who's working.
