This place is always busy for Sunday breakfast. The wait is usually not long. The food is good and the staff friendly.

Locally owned and operated Dinner style restaurant in the south. The facility has a "50s" theme with juke box music playing in the background. The food was great. We took our family of 12 to breakfast. The food was great; service quick and friendly, most of the servers were high school kids that did a great job.

We had a business meeting at Jo's for breakfast. I was apprehensive about the crawfish omelette because I don't normally do seafood for breakfast. However, the combination of crawfish, sausage, and jalapeño made for an excellent meal. Highly recommend trying it.

This restaurant is one of my favorites. It's hidden in a shopping complex and has good servers. The food is really good. I get a giant hamburger every visit, however they have daily plate specials and serve breakfast all day. It set up like a 50's restaurant and everyone can find something great to eat.

This little diner has a fifties flare with Blue plate specials to boot. My husband and I was seated as soon as we walked in. We ordered the chicken fried steak and the hamburger steaks with sides of mashed potatoes, turnip greens, black eyed peas, fried okra, and cornbread muffins. Guess what they have the real Louisiana hot sauce. Everything... More

Food is ok but service is so slow. Kid friendly, casual dining, but requires lots of patience to dine here. Food sometimes arrives at your table in stages.

Onion rings were huge and deep battered and extra... More
