For first-time patrons, I would highly recommend one of the burgers. The classic cheeseburger is a bargain at $5.99, and the specialty burgers—like the Southwest burger with sauteed peppers and onions and pepperjack cheese; or the Texas burger with house barbecue sauce—are worth the extra dollar at $6.99. Served with lettuce and tomato on a substantial bun, the juicy burgers will hit the spot for anyone looking for a quality meal on their lunch break.
The breakfast menu includes a variety of breakfast tacos—including potato, egg, ham and bacon—for $1.50, as well as breakfast sandwiches with similar ingredients for $3.99.
All the food is made as it's ordered, and the salsa for the tacos is made fresh every day. Each meal also comes with the option of adding chips and a drink.
Customers have a variety of choices for seating. You can eat indoors at a booth or table, or outside on the porch, backyard patio or at a picnic table under a pavilion. Braving the Texas heat might not be all that appealing at this time of year, but the outdoor seating seems like it would make a nice option on cooler days. A radio is set out on the front porch for those who eat outside, while a television is set up indoors. In addition, J&B's has a drive-thru window.
The atmosphere inside is reminiscent of a southern diner, with minimal decoration aside from Lone Stars and crosses on the walls. Patrons can also sit at the counter opposite the kitchen where all orders are prepared.
While many restaurants may come and go without people taking notice, J&B's, in its early stages, has already proven that it is worth keeping around. A city can never have too many places that know how to cook a good burger.
