we've eaten here quite a few times in the past. But this time the service was poor and the portions were VERY small. We felt as though they just wanted to get us out of there, though we were only in the place 30 minutes.

Have stopped at Aunt Jenny's on multiple occasions, and different times of day and have not been disappointed. While most of their selections are fried, they don't have a heavy fried taste to them. The coleslaw they bring out to the table after you sit...More
