Ok we only go here every couple of years but it's always been a special thing since we live 2 hours away. Things were a little disappointing. The place wasn't as clean as I thought it should be and is starting to look run down. The girl at the hostess stand where you put your name on the list initially was less than thrilled to be there. No smile, nothing. Two people in our group ordered the ribeye steak and it was tough and definitely not worthy of the 22 dollar price tag. We will gladly pay that much at a Texas Roadhouse where the ribeye is top notch. No one ever offered us any sorghum or Apple butter even though they walked nearby several times. We were not offered black eyed peas until the end of our meal and we were done & ready to pay by then. The good things I can say are that our waitress was very good and friendly and she plus other staff did keep our drinks full. The fried potatoes pass around were delicious. Just wasn't overall what we had remembered.

I ordered a white mocha and it literally tasted like tar. Yuck, took a while to get that taste out of my mouth. However I will say the sticky buns are to die for! Quick service but a little overpriced.

When I Moved from my Hometown to where I live now I can't get Fried Pies .so when I seen it on here I knew I was going to try them. I ordered a Peach Pie and it was so scrumptious. I will certainly stop in again if i'm in Sikeston.

Enjoyed a delicious pulled pork sandwich with fries. The food was awesome as was the service. (Iced tea is really good, too). Don't forget the free ice cream with several toppings for your dessert.

Loads of shrimp dishes, all the traditional beef, pork and chicken dishes too.
Mongolian Grill will prepare your choice of meats, vegetables, sauces and more to your liking.
A complete sushi selection, salads and desserts, and great service earn this restaurant an excellent five - star rating.

I've been going here for a few years now, and I will day that their donuts are very good! They make it right there in the back! The bad thing is... they don't wear gloves in the back when making donuts. My friend had a finger print in her frosting, and the ladies in the back had no gloves with all that dough in their hands. The lady at the front register does wear gloves so I definitely feel they should in the back! The employee door just so happened to be open so I saw it all, plus I heard rumors that they don't wear gloves which is why my ex-boss refuses to eat there! If everyone was required to wear gloves (not sanitizer), this place would be great.
Also I noticed everyone spoke to me and others, but when a black guy came in, some looked down, others seemed FORCED to speak! Go there in the afternoon when the breakfast ladies are gone

My, my! Southern fried chicken with buffet of tasty sides and salad and sweets and breads. Since we were traveling, we asked a local where we could find the best Sunday lunch in sikeston and they said, "Look no further than Jay's Krispy Fried Chicken! They were right! Stood in line and it was worth the wait!

No great shakes. Nobody looked like they wanted to be working there. Not very busy on a Monday night. I almost choked when I saw the bartender up on the shelf where liquors are stored. How dirty were Her shoe Size? Waitress was not the least bit engaging. I guess we should have gone to Lamberts and caught some "thrower rolls."

Good food. The food is quite good. The staff is very friendly and always ready to help you make a decision as to what to try if needed. They are very willing to describe any dish. I would recommend this restaurant. It really does have quality food.
