“Fantastic Burger Join”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Great local burger experience! J's Carryout is a small place that has the ideal burger, greasy but not too greasy cheesy and beefy, and who doesn't love a place where you get a free ice cream cone where you wait or when you finish?!? I decided on onion rings and they are honestly some of the best I have had. Perfectly crunchy! I will most definitely visit again!

“Best hamburgers in the state, at least.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I've even worked here, and can vouch for the quality meat and ingredients used here. Jay will remember your name, once he's met you. The burgers are cooked up to order, expect to take 6 minutes for them to cook. Super thick onion rings. The grilled onions are tops on the burgers. When you're done eating (or are waiting at the window) they offer you free ice cream cones. We love Jay's.

“Nothing else like it: EXCELLENT BURGERS!!!”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

It took me a long time before I finally ate there, but once I did: wow! The burgers are the best in Emporia, if not the county. The burgers have a flavor like none other. The fries and such are good. The owners are very friendly folks, and the staff works hard. Seating is at a premium: the place is very small. However, if you want a great hometown joint (why Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives hasnt been here is beyond me) stop by.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

J's hamburgers rival any of the so called "best hamburgers" in the nation. They also make some of the best onion rings and crispy fries, not to mention the free ice cream cone!
