I have been eating at Jess' my entire life but hadn't been back in many years until recently. It was as good as I remember. They have the best chili dogs and chocolate milkshakes! Very reasonable prices too!

Jess's has been serving up a great hot dog for years. The chile sauce makes it unique. I also like the cheeseburger grilled before your eyes. The coffee is quite good.
