Every time I come into town I eat here at least 2 times! The breakfast menu is great along with lunch and dinner. I have absolutely no complaints.

I had the beef enchilada meal and it was fantastic. Portion size was just right; enough there to preclude the need for desert. Service was polite and prompt and there was plenty tpo choose from on the menu. Highly recommend!

We met a group for a birthday dinner. We waited for a table to be cleared to accommodate us per the hostess. Another group came in that a waitress knew and lo and behold they were seated at the table the hostess said would be ours. Yes, we had a reservation.

There aren't very many places to eat-out in Brooklyn, MI, but JR's is worth repeat visits. They have several cuisine sections to the menu that offer enough changes to the menu that customers don't need to feel bored. The waitstaff is very nice and friendly, so remember to tip well.

We usually have decent service, but the food is average...but the last time we were there we didn't have as good service and food. My husband received a piece of meat with at least 3 oz of fat and the manager was rude and said "that's normal" and wouldn't do anything about it. We had them take it of our... More

The food here is delicious. There are food and drink specials on a daily basis. I've had their burgers, fish, pasta and chicken. The burgers were prepared to ordered with fast friendly service.

We stopped in for dinner after a nice motorcycle ride, having never been there, was excited about trying their food. I ordered the chimichanga, He ordered the wet burrito. The wet burrito was neither wet nor tasted like a burrito. very bland. My chimi was basically meat and onions in a deep fried shell. This had no mexican flair either.... More

JR's gives you something different in Brooklyn, which is nice since there really is not much too choose from. The food & service are good. Can be great depending on who's working.
