JW's is consistant. The waitstaff is always friendly and welcoming. The food is mostly average, but never has been bad. Check their daily specials. If you have time, grab some of their fried pickles for an appetizer. Best stop between Brenham and Austin.

I did not grow up with chicken fried steak. I have done my best to make up for that. This was my first chicken fried steak sandwich. The chicken fried steak was amazing! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Can't wait to go back!
