Recently tried Famous J's & had one of my favorite sandwiches. Their BLT's are so good. They use Texas toast, crispy bacon with shredded lettuce & tomato. Excellent service & great taste. Also price very reasonable.

Friendly and quick service for fresh, made to order food! I personally love their grilled chicken and the burgers (really close to a GD Ritsy's style burger), the fries and most of all the jacked up tots!!
