Such a cool place. Loved the setup. Has the old time appearance of a family restaurant and ice cream parlor. Great burger and fries. Ice cream was very good. A piece of cake is huge and tasted wonderful. Seemed like half a cake.

I love the atmosphere. Service can be uneven. It is a good choice for a sandwich and coffee. We think that you will like it.

My husband got the club sandwich and he could barely finish! It was a monster! More important- is was delicious! I had an order of fries that were hot, crispy, and seasoned just right!

This listing is incorrect, it is JJ's Eatery and Ice Cream. We were there in May and decided to stop in and have a burger. Well the others had this "huge" fresh patted burger and I had "fried bologna" sandwich. Was delicious! The staff are so friendly and really nice. Don't forget to save room for the ice cream!

I had the most amazing experience at JJ's! The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. We especially loved the old school feel and ice cream bar. The chocolate milkshakes are to die for! I will for sure go back soon, especially now that they serve paleo meals during the week.
