The service is neat, friendly and helpful. The menu is huge. Everything I or family ever had was much enjoyed. The servings are filling and usually you have yummy left overs. Offers yummy daily specials , and has a full service bar. Did I mention the food is amazing and affordable?

After a long day of driving in from Yellowstone we were starved. We started with an order of the Sriracha chips. They were darn good and something I've not before or since. And sadly I didn't see them on the menu when I googled it just now. I ordered them based on other reviews and the servers recommendation. I had... More

Breakfast or dinner, the staff has always been friendly, fun, can joke with you and unlike so many places now, they are happy to be of service. The dinners are usually very good. They give a decent helping and you don't leave hungry.

at Jr's you can consistently expect good food at reasonable price The wait staff is generally great but last night for dinner the smoke from casino (or staff smoking at open door) was intolerable. I came home and had to wash everything. In general this is not a problem in the morning and we can ask to be seated as... More

Thank you for your review of JRs Bar and Grill. We are sorry the smoke odor was worse on New Year's Eve. We continue to work on ways to mitigate the odor and have had some success. But when there are more smokers, it is difficult to filter it out. Our apologies to you. We are pleased that you take... More

Of the restaurants under the Red Lion umbrella, we enjoy JR's the most! The food is cheap, the portions are big and the ambiance is casual. The service has been mostly OK during the times we visited, but during our last visit, the service was fantastic! Our waitress, Sammy, waited on us hand and foot and had an extremely cheerful...

You will love this place for burgers! We had the garlic mushroom burger and a burger with guacamole, cheese, and bacon. Both burgers were juicy and cooked perfectly. The fried sweet potato were good, not greasy at all. One of us chose the onion rings and they were good, too. A great place to stop for lunch or dinner on... More

We got a meal that filled our stomachs, didn't make us ill, and was inexpensive; good enough after a long day's driving. Good baked potato (it's hard to ruin a baked potato, I think), subpar New York Strip Steak. Service was adequate but the wait staff was clearly more interested in talking to her colleagues. Inexpensive, but adequate. Don't go... More
