I LOVE Jackson's

I’ve been eating at Jackson’s since 2001. I love it. I love the roast beef and the chicken and dumplings are the BEST. Its nice home style food. I always get way too much food because everything looks so good. Now that Im pregnant and in CO, I’ve been thinking about it every day. I would do anything for some chicken and dumplings. Take the family and enjoy.

Chicken and Dumplings

This is my absolute favorite! Try it and you will see why!

Thanksgiving Meal

We went for Thanksgiving. The turkey was processed; it looked like it was cut off a loaf. The dressing seemed to be cooked on top of the stove; it was not baked. The vegetables were very good; I had mashed potatoes and carrots. Mom also had cabbage. The meal was offered as a special—$5.99 for turkey, dressing, and two vegetables. Drinks, rolls, and dessert were extra, so two of us ate a cafeteria meal for $20.72. K & W offered their Thanksgiving meal for $5.99, which included everything. I had the turkey and dressing last week, and the turkey was carved off the bird. I wish we had gone there.

Very Poor Customer Service

My family and I went to Jackson’s on Friday, Jan. 23rd and asked the servers about my wife getting a child’s plate. She just came from the hospital discharged from surgery and wanted just a small portion, my son and I was hungry and wanted to eat. Server spoke with DAVID who we learned was the or one of the Owners. Without letting the server finish telling him our situation he said “No”, I tried to explain our situation but he said “Look man, I’m really busy” the most rudest person I have ever met, told him we are leaving and would never be back. DAVID didn’t care. I have eaten at Jackson’s since I was a kid but I’ve noticed the place has really gone downhill. DAVID is probably the most rudest, self-centered, uncaring person that I have met in a long time. The restaurant is a direct reflection of your attitude. Jan. 23rd was and will be my last visit to Jackson’s.

Don't be Hispanic

Well, I guess if you are not Hispanic, then this might be a good place to eat. We were looked at like we had horns growing out of our heads (and we were all dressed in our Sunday best because we had just come from church) and right off the bat the cashier YELLED at us!!! Huh??? Then, when we greeted the salad lady she turned her back on us and mumbled over her shoulder hey. We could not believe it. We walked out. We did not eat their food (they might have spit in it) and we will not be recommending this place to anyone! It is sad that a restaurant would turn away a check for at least $50 and potential future visits. But hey, Cracker Barrel down the street treated us real nice and we ate good.
